Thanks. Should be about the right time for her first oil change.

Urgh! I can't remember. It's got to have some kind of nipple, because we can connect the hose to it. Let me ask Mike when he comes down to see if he remembers. Otherwise I will try to remember the next time I go out in the shop to look at the box.

Mike and I both have them, but I haven't installed mine yet. Mike has though, and it's worked great. He installed it (with the locking clip) and we didn't have any problems with it when we went to Ouray.

When you put the engine skid on it pretty much necessitates a Fumoto valve or deal with a dripping mess.

Bear in mind, there is a captivated nut inside the oil pan and that the plug threads into so it's not exactly flat in there. What is the comparison of the thread depths between the stock plug and Fumoto valve? I realize you probably don't have the plug removed right now but when you do please post a side by side pic. Where did you order your valve from. Thanks.

Lights off:



Typical photo people take of their lights.




Photo with camera adjusted properly:



Specs: Trucklite headlights, KC Apollo 6" 100w on bumper, KC Slimlights 6" 130w on side-mount KC brackets on windshield.

Okay, carry on now with whatever you all were talking about...

I think aux lighting is going to be my next project. Nice job on yours.

Hopefully you know I was just giving you , NGA. All in good fun, honest!

Are we still friends?
