    Made some simple brackets to help mount the super quick fists used to mount my fire extinguisher (didn't want to drill through the molle panel). And then got the entire molle panel remounted in the truck with the shiny PowerTank.

    What are general thoughts on the Fumoto oil drain valve. Short nipple, long nipple, standard nipple?

    I wouldn't put one on, without skids, in fear of it getting knocked off or open. The engine would cook before you even realized it. Even if you do not off road, you could still catch a stick just right or a rock falling off a dump truck.

    Just my paranoid 0.02.

    As posted above, I could see some fear in it catching on something and ripping off. With that said, I have one with the short nipple and I absolutely love it. Oil changes couldn't be easier I literally don't need any tools to do the job.

    My son and I fabbed up some bed rail plates for quick fists...was a good lesson in building a jig, and he needed the welding practice.

    100% for them vibrating loose. I didn't want to lose a shackle on the road because the damn pin backed out.

    I've got Fumoto's current F103N and love it but I run it with full skids so it's protected. I've got their new F113S on the way which is supposed to address the slow oil draining that the previous models had. :thumbsup:

    All of this nipple talk is very distracting.
    In all seriousness though, I will be installing a short nipple valve on my next oil change.

    Fixed the back up switch, lg1 fuse and threw in some "super bright" reverse lights that I got for christmas. Broke the tail light in the process but oh well.

    I'll have to time it before I can attest to that bold claim.
