I've never found removing the drain bolt to be much of a hassle or messy, especially when compared to draining/removing the two Amsoil filters. Is there any danger with the Fumoto drain valve in relation to driving off-road and something hitting it?
Good question. My 2cents is there's plenty of other things that will rub/hit before your oil pan and the drain valve which hangs down another inch.

I changed mine every 10K miles. The diesels like clean fuel, don't skimp on intervals or filters...OEM only!!!!

Also, take a good look at the filter along the frame rail. If you still have the OEM fuel tank and it's starting or has been delaminating, you'll see grey flakes in the filter. This can cause low fuel pressure or over time the pieces can get small enough and make it past both filters...both conditions will kill the injectors. If you're seeing signs of tank delamination get it fixed ASAP. You can get the tank reconditioned where they'll boil/blast out the interior and then recoat it.

Good Luck!!!

I really need this and the link no longer works, any ideas? Thanks!
