Oil change

Did an oil change today. Put the fumoto valve on but not sure how I feel about how it hangs down. I don't do much off roading. So we'll see. Anyone have issues with their valve? Also found that the oil cap was the wrong ( not ford). It was about an inch taller.

I have had mine for about 40k miles IIRC. Every 3rd oil change I put my original plug back in since it is magnetic (but never found any metal on it anyways), but I have never had an issue it. I don't go mud boggin with the truck, but it has been in the fields and off-road as needed when hunting, riding ATVs, or hot shotting and pickin up equipment in the fields.

I purchased this truck in october from a Jeep dealership. This is the second oil change I have done.. I do use ford filters and that's all . I had a 6.0 and have used ford with it and will continue too. Last time I change oil I didn't pay attention to the oil filter cap. I was having an oil pressure light come on and was looking into ways to fix the issue. Thus an early oil change and I had already changed out the sensor. Ordered a new cap off ebay and made sure I ordered a ford one. That's how I found out there was a difference in caps. The one I took off was wix I think and was about an inch taller.

Happen to have a pic of your valve on your oil pan? I have been considering one if these.

I don't have my truck right now, but if no one has posted a pic, I'll take one when I get it back.

I have the fumoto valve too, and when I bought my truck it had a WIX cap on it which I wasn't aware of. The front axle is much lower than the valve so that puts me at ease. Ordered a new oil cap too and replaced it with the Ford one. I only use ford filters. The valve is awesome and makes oil changes so easy.
