    Job well done! Any thoughts on the Fumoto valve? I'm looking to install one on my next oil change. I see there may be different versions? Thanks

    I like the design of it. Basically it’s a banjo fitting and seems well made. There are justifiable concerns over the durability if you are a rock bouncer or someone who offloads a lot but my truck is just a mall crawler with an occasional trip to the deer lease. I have a side by side for the rough trips. I think it is close enough to the oil pan and lower than the cross member so it will be protected. I can’t comment on the drain speed for a few more miles. Time will tell…

    Thanks for your thoughts! The clearance issue is definitely a concern for me.

    I wish I had taken a pic for you. It is up in the hole that you reach up through to remove the drain plug. If I were worried and was driving it on a rough trail I don’t think I would install one. Maybe another brand that is more of a flush mount.

    Uh oh, you may have just started something. There was another thread on this topic that went the usual way of online opinions.

    Ive had the same one on my truck and the wifes subaru for over a year no complaints, seemed more secure and better built over the ones with the lever. Even if this one leaks it has another sealed cap

    I’ve had one on my other truck for 7 years without a problem. I put one on my parents Wrangler several years ago and it’s been good there too. I just installed one on my Tacoma last weekend and so far no problem. There is two versions available for our pickups. One with a nipple to hook a drain hose to and one without. I personally don’t think our pickups need a drain hose because of how it’s situated. With either version there should be no clearance concerns since the valve still sits above the skid plate.

    Scrubbed some tires, and knocked a dent out.
    I just dont know the average/expected use life on the parts. Obviously using something creates wear. But I feel like having all the load constantly going to the box and cv axles etc would be putting a lot of wear on them.

    No problem! Glad they could live on, loved them while I ran them for the short period that I did. Enjoy!

    super quiet so far - probably quieter than the stock tires. But they are still brand new. I’ve heard good things about these tires though.
