    2.7L 3RZ,K&N filter, 4" deck plate mod,flowmaster 40 series,3" body lift,3" suspension lift,35's. I also have another tacoma a 97 with a 350 small block in it on a 1972 blazer frame...
    yeah but if your so lazy you want a valve on your oil pan so you dont have to un-screw the bolt...then why would you want to unbolt a skid plate to turn the valve.. he had all the stock skids installed but they had enough room for a little stick to poke through

    Here is an old trick before putting back the plug; put a dab of grease in the bottom few threads of the plug. Not too much and it'll seal. No need to buy new gaskets or sealer.

    I've done all my oil changes since I got my truck new and I've never replaced the washer and it's never leaked. Just don't over tighten it is what I say.

    I took mine to walmart one time and on my next oil change I discovered no gasket on the screw :eek:.

    I just figured whatever, it didn't leak without it... I might go pick one up for my next oil change...
