    I am looking to possibly install one of these on my 2017 Gen 3 Taco. Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Also are there any other mods I should do when changing my own oil?

    I have one on my 2015 and had one on my 2000. I have two Subaru Outback’s with them also. Never a problem and makes oil changes so much easier. Do it!

    Yes.
    Had them on several vehicles. Love that all you have to do is just flick the switch to start draining. No mess and no digging the drain plug out of a pool of oil.

    I would totally do this if it wasn't for having to change that pos oil filter which imo is the worst part.

    I really didn’t mind the filter change at all. Swapped in the metal filter housing and didn’t have the first lick of trouble with any of it

    Surprised they don’t cost more than they do. Can’t go wrong for the $

    I did the Fumoto valve and aluminum housing.

    I also bought the MotivX filter wrench and drain tool.

    I don't have one, but I think is worth mentioning; the Baxter spin-on oil filter adapter.

    I like the fumoto, but it does take forever to drain. That being said, I still like it. Makes it much easier to get a oil sample for lab analysis. I would like to get one for the wife's Prius but I'm afraid it would hang too low below. The Tacoma is perfect as it's nicely tucked up and away

    I have one on my taco, my wife's old rogue, my old wrx, and I'll be getting one for her gx460. They make oil changes very very easy and clean.
