When the drain hose is not in use, there is a cover that threads onto the pan valve (with an o-ring) to provide secondary protection against accidental spillage. Also, the Fram model reqiures less clearance.
I used this one for years on my truck. It's great until you lose the drain tube.

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer?

Did my first oil change last night. Looks like the rubber washer is part of the bolt. Im sure you can peel it off, but it looks like it doesn't need to be replaced. I was shocked to find what seems like a plastic oil pan. Also the metal that partially covers the oil filter makes it more difficult to get the filter off. That and the small access hole they give you. One of the more messy oil changes I've done in awhile.

Did you check the transfer case and differential levels also, and if you did any hints you want to share?

You mean the plastic engine "beauty" cover (I've always thought those were silly)? Just yank the whole thing off for an oil change, dint mess with that small round access cover directly over the filter. Removing the whole thing gives you tons of room for a filter change

Oh, yes. The v6 oil filter is on the top and the filter media is removable from the canister.

here are some pictures of mine with the full engine cover removed during a filter change. These are all with the used filter. It snaps out of the top part of the housing and a new filter snaps back in. Then you screw that back into the housing on the top if the engine. The new filter comes with a new o-ring for the lid

Why you should use a drain valve

I have my Overland serviced at a local dealer. They did an oil change on my vehicle and I noticed that it was leaking oil on my driveway. When I took it back they told me that they had to replace the oil filter because it wasn't seated correctly. Unbeknownst to me they had also over tourqed the oil pan plug. When I went in for the next oil change the plug would not come out. They re-threaded the opening on warranty and put in a new plug. They also gave me a free oil change with Mobil One synthetic (my usual) and apologized for the inconvenience. A drain valve would have made the plug replacement moot.

no, I didn't check them. I assumed I didn't have to bother with them until 25k or so.

I have the V8, so I was refering to the splash panel underneath. But yes, I hate all the plastic in engine bays too.

i loved the canister filter on top on my BMW. but on the 8 it's under, but it looks easy to change too.
