Re: Stripped oil plug/pan
Whatever you end up doing, I'd highly recommend the Fumoto drain valve. I've had one on my Jeep and my wife's Jeep for awhile now. You'll never need to worry about some idiot cross-threading a drain pan bolt again.
Not sure what you mean by "redoing" the engine later on down the road, but if you plan on keeping it for awhile, I'd get a new pan, layer on a few coats of bedliner, and have it installed with new screws and a new gasket.
