yep, i definately wouldnt do it without the metal skid.

Re: oil drain valve

For those of you saying that the oil drain plug from the factory will NEVER fail, consider the issue of cross threading this bolt. If you do all your own changes, you can be sure that it’s done right to your standards. However, if you take it to have it done, someone who doesn’t care about your Jeep and just wants to keep moving customers through his line may thrown on the plug and do some damage, either cross threading or cranking the hell out of the bolt and stripping out the pan. With the valve, only threaded once and this situation is no longer an issue.

That being said, I am still on my first oil change from buying the truck so I will probably pick one of these up in the next couple hundred miles to put on. Seems like a pretty safe bet for a mostly on road vehicle.
