I played with it a little before installation, and it seems to function pretty smoothly. It's also tucked up nicely out of the way on the 4.7. I'm not sure about the other engines. I think I'll like it quite a bit. It will certainly make for cleaner (and tool-less) oil changes.

If you don't mind, I'll give you my opinion.

I installed it 3 years ago and I think its a must have !
I have the valve with the nipple. When I do my oil change, I just plug a short hose and drain de oil directly into a empty oil container. I just have to close the valve to change container. No mess, easy and fast !

Totally agree with these sentiments. I installed this in October 2011 and never regretted it.

Put in my new LED cup holder rings (Thanks to craigbru). 70% of the time I spent on it was walking around my house looking for the tool I needed as well as about 30 minutes trying to find one of the spade connectors I dropped down into the center console. All in all, roughly a 45 job? I posted pictures and a link to my photobucket page in craigbru's LED ring thread.

Saw a Light Khaki/Line-x'd Commander this morning on Naval Base San Diego, It looked really good, makes bedlining the WK an viable option again.

Most of my mess comes when removing the filter.

Agreed. There's no easy way to remove that without getting oil all over.

What you didn't run him down and make him join up here?! Was he lifted and ready for some wheeling? There is a guy who works where I do with a blue XK on an OME lift that I see every now and again.

There is on the Hemi! My oil changes are 100% mess free thanks to the valve. With the Hemi there is a plastic piece under the filter to catch all the oil and channel it down in front of the subframe. From there I use a funnel and a hose to catch it and take it straight to the oil bucket. My oil changes on the Bison are so easy now the wife did the last one for me and will do the next one while I'm gone!!! Ya she's a keeper!

Yeah, there is an oil catcher for the Jeep, I was more concerned about the mess on me! Haha.

Ha. I changed my oil Sunday and added the Fumoto valve. I've got to replace my burned out center brake light.
