There are a ton of people running Fumoto valves. My friend has one on his 02 7.3L and I really need to get one for my truck. They are great!

You will put one on every vehicle once you change the oil with one, 10min oil changes

I want one but am scared about it possibly opening when I don't want it to. I did read their notice about using a hose clip for off road use which I like but I am still concerned that the valve hangs down low and could be hit by even road debris

Even with the one with the nipple doesn't hang as low as your front differential OR your transmission cross member. You really don't have much to worry about.

I'm all for convenience but what is so hard about tasking out the bolt?

Mine would ALWAYS leak, so I would have to replace that damn copper washer. Most times, I would buy them and then forget where I put them, so I had to reuse the copper washer and it would leak...

With this, I just pop the lever open and drain into an old, empty jug. Once it's full, I pop the lever closed and get another jug. I don't have to drain into a bucket and then transfer to the jug. Just another added convenience. It was worth it to me.

BTW, I also had these exact same thoughts and once I finally got it installed, I can't believe I didn't do it sooner.
