Fumoto valves are your friend.
I have a Skid Row plate on my TJ and it does have a drain hole. But with a Fumoto valve, all you really need is a way to funnel it around. I have some clear tubing I use for oil changes that route it right to my oil catch pan.
I wouldn't run a Fumoto valve without some kind of skid plate to protect it, that's for sure. But in this setup, it makes the changes easy and painless (at least until I take off the side mounted oil filter LOL).
