I went with the F-106 (note the absence of any letters at the end). The way I figured it, I'd never use a drain hose anyway, so I went with the lowest profile possible.

I don't have any side profile pictures of it, but is nearly flush with the skid plate. I torqued to the range specified with a crowfoot wrench such that the lever pointed to the rear of the vehicle for the closed position. It should virtually eliminate any chance of it accidentally opening via sage brush.

Re: Oil Drain Plug and Skid Plates...

This is the style that I have on my Dodge Ram CTD 2500. It is a very low profile design and has an integrated, leak free hose (sold separately) that you thread on to start/stop draining.

I believe the Ram EcoDiesel plug is the same size as our Jeep EcoDiesels. It looks like the Mopar part number for both Ram/Jeep EcoDiesel drain plugs is: 68211183AA

I put a zip tie around the Fumoto one. I have 100% confidence in it now

I Installed a F106S today. Before installing it, I've measured the distance between the plug surface and the inside bottom of the pan. This measured around 3/4. The length of the F106S nipple is about 3/8. This means that while the valve is fully secured, the nipple is well under the bottom pan surface and we will get a complete drain.
