Just curious on where you got your rock guards. And do you have a part number. Googled the guards but not sure if they are the same ones you got.

these are still available on ebay.

Installation is frustrating. They slide underneath on the frame, thats the hardest part. On the driver side, i had a bolt that stripped and we had to cut a hole underneath the driver seat. Not a problem because i will be putting in bed liner in the whole back.

Oof. That was my Sunday. I'm a little worried about this since I don't have a press.

Thanks. Saw those on eBay but wasn't sure if they went all the way to my stock fender flares.

maybe I'm not talented enough to move the pan quick enough from the distance pee point when the plug comes out, to the dribble point beneath the drain that starts at the same instant???
I dunno how the PO got that filter on that tight, but that thing would not budge until I got the endcap socket on it.

In regards to the oil spillage, two words: Fumoto Valve. I am very impressed with mine!
