    I never seen a problem with the Fumoto valves on Toyota trucks due to the angle of the drain on the pan and how far it the valve is still tucked up under the crossmember. Now I don't have one on my rock crawler, and if you seen my oil pan and skid plates would understand why.

    Have one on my Tacoma. I have the nipple and like it because I can just put a 5 qt jug under and drain straight in to the jug. Only problem is the oil drains slower. I plan on taking it off before selling the Tacoma and use when I buy Tundra. On the Tacoma the skid plate protects the valve. I did not know how protected it would be on the Tundra but from what I have read it does not sound like a problem.

    I have one as well and love it. Just leave it in. Attached a tube every time you do an oil change.

    I put mine on when I did my first oil change at 5k. I ran one on my last rig, too. It makes things so much cleaner, easier, and faster when doing the oil change. Also make sure you upgrade the oil filter canister to the aluminum one instead of the stock plastic one (I cracked mine early on). The Sequoias have the aluminum one and it fits the same.

    I've never had any problems with the valve itself leaking or breaking.
