    I took on a 5gal plastic bucket at 80mph. Got caught underneath the car on the y-pipes. Had a box spring mattress fly off a truck and I took that on the front passenger corner and it went underneath the car as well. **** happens.

    Had a thick rope net get caught up between the flywheel and torque converter on my '69 Chevelle, stopped the engine dead in its tracks. Didn't know why it stalled, tried to re-start it, caught the starter on fire.

    It wasn't fun separating the transmission from the engine to pull that net out, with dry chemical fire extinguisher falling down in my face while I worked.

    Had a friend get barb wire wrapped around the driveshaft and locked up the rear end on the highway. She said it was a wild ride.

    I agree, I had mine installed but took it off before I ever drove with it. I had just hit a large tire tread a couple weeks before and couldn't stomach keeping it on.

    If you haven't gotten it off yet. Get yourself a 12pt socket that you have to use a hammer to tape it on. The points should bite the bolt and spin right off. When I worked at the shop in my younger days we did this all the time on lug nuts and other stuff.

    Only reason why I actually pull the trigger on this is because there is a plastic plate that covers the engine bay from not just wind, but debris.

    I would second guess using the fumoto plug on something that would go off road.

    If any one has a chance to get a picture of it on, that would be great. I could probly google it, but I want to see what it looks like on a charger..and how far down it sticks out.

    This is the long nipple version, order the short one (F-106S, comes with the lever clip) and let it drain straight into oil container.. not due for an oil change but will try to get pics during next one.

    Paranoid folks - carry the original drain plug and a wrench around with you.

    That's my point.. if you've ripped the plastic shroud off to expose the oil pan you're probably going to have bigger problems than an oil leak.

    Found this on Fumoto's site (sound advice):

    2. - N-Series valve (with nipple to accept hose) is not recommended for passenger cars with low clearance.

    With or without, won't matter. The drain plug doesn't point down it goes horizontal with the ground. I'm dropping 2.5in and it's a Daily Driver. Never had an issue. I believe if you hit something in the road big or hard enough to damage this drain plug you would have damage the oil filter and tons of other stuff in the process. I wanted the nipple to be able to connect a hose. This way I can drain straight into a jug. Instead of into a catch pan, just to then turn around and drain into a jug for disposal. I now just need my 3/8in hose and no tools to change my oil.

    Ah, good point!

    I should clarify, the short nipple does still allow a drain tube to be connected, I just don't use it.. I was more pointing this out before people freak out about how long it is and its ability to be ripped off by being more exposed.

    I'm also using this for a catch pan - no transferring oil to another jug and good for a couple of oil changes (16 quarts) before disposal..
