If you use the Rancho skid there is no interference with the drain plug so the valve wouldn't be necessary.

Yeah, it is a metal box. It comes with RTV and I added some the grey JB Weld.

It's the next best thing to completely replacing the oil pan. It's heavy, solid steel.

I got the Rancho one this week and will install it today. I figured it is better to expend some bucks on this than hitting the oil pan, loose oil and run the chance of messing up my engine. I consider the oil pan to be weak and way to exposed to rocks and other objects.

I did too, but so far I haven't hit it. I've hit every other skid, plus the additional skids I've added, but Iíve managed to miss the oil pan...so far. I'm still happy with the Ranch armor as I figure one day Iíll scrape it up - instead of bend/poke a hole in the stock pan.
