    Any of you guys running these with skid plates? Just curious if they fit or not? I can't recall how much clearance I have at the moment and am not currently near my rig to check.

    Yes, I am, albeit only factory skids, I'm thinking you have nice custom ones though.

    Yep. Haha. 1/4" thick steel. I can practically bend the factory ones with my hands... so they were gone quickly.

    awesome. I assumed so but as long as that 103 valve is an m12x1.25. They are kinda vague on that correlation....

    The general consensus with Fumoto is they are good. They don't leak and they are very convenient to use.

    Those who off-road a lot are cautioned to install some protection to avoid damage, or just not use the Fumoto.

    I've had one for years. I put one on my wifes SUV too. It allows me to change oil even in my work clothes.

    I have one, it's the shorter one and it doesn't extend past the skid plate so pretty difficult to damage it.

    I love it. It makes oil changes so easy. attach hose and drain to oil box. I should note that there was a real small seepage when first installed and it went away after a week. Maybe gasket had to get settled. No leak whatsoever since.

    I change my oil about every 6 weeks (7500 miles)...Fumoto valve is the way to go for me as I don’t off-road.

    Even with the short nipple you can still attach a drain hose. It’s protected by the cross member.

    Wrap it before you tap it. Otherwise you get to be on Maury....

    I have the fumoto for my 2013 taco. I got the longer nipple to make it easier to attach the drain hose. Also I am running after market skids to protect the longer nipple from ever getting hit. I don't even need any tools to change my oil now! Fumoto valve FTW!!
