    Does anyone plan on using the Fumoto Valve or a similar one? Does anyone plan on using one for their JL diesel?
    http://www.fumotousa.com/

    Does anyone know the oil plugs thread pitch?
    Their website doesn’t list the JL diesel yet.
    I’m assuming it’s the same as the 2020 Ram 1500 3.0 diesel 14mm - 1.5 pitch thread
    I can’t check since my JLUD has been in order since 11/11/19 like most everyone else here.
    I’d like to add this to my pile of parts I’ve accumulated.
    Plus Fumoto USA has a 20% off sale today.

    I use one on my diesel truck but felt comfortable doing so because it doesn’t see much of any off-road use. I haven’t seen a JL diesel in person yet, to see where the drain plug sits with respect to skid plates, etc. I’d worry about contact with a stick or who knows what, that may damage the valve and drop the oil.

    I didn’t cast a vote since I haven’t seen one first hand.

    The same. I have one on my 01 F250 and it's great but would never see more than a forest service road.

    I haven't seen a 3.0L diesel Jeep yet either, so I'm not voting either.

    I know I will not on my 3.6L gasser. I got a little ding in the oil pan already. I need to get a skid plate for the engine.

    No. Maybe on fleet vehicles that never see off-road use, but not a Jeep with any engine option. All risk, no reward.

    I'm waiting for my '20 3.0 Wrangler as well, which is why I checked "undecided" 'till I see what I'm dealing with.

    I've used one on my JK since Day 1. It turns oil changes into a mess-free delight. Literally, not a drop. I don't offroad my Jeep, so I don't worry about damage.

    BTW, the "I don't offroad" sometimes draws sneers, but I got into the Jeep lifestyle because of snow. I moved to AZ from a small Colorado mountain community that averages 19 feet of snow per year. I've owned 10 Jeeps (most during my Colorado days) and still like the vehicles, so I stuck with them. My household has owned Wranglers, GCs, Liberties, and Patriots. They're all great in the snow, and and in the Colorado mountains virtually all residents own at least one Jeep.

    I also own a GT3 and don't track it - I'm just a disappointment across the board. :)

    Here a pic taken just before shipping from CO to AZ. It's a 997-type. Note the non-standard classic-style wheels. [original wheels were a bear to clean]. I'm toying with upgrading to retro-style Fuchs forged wheels. If it makes the Diesel waiters feel better, this took nine months from factory order to delivery. I was having kittens by the time it arrived. And...I didn't have a bunch of other orderers to commiserate with.

    I'll probably get one for the DEF tank, if there isn't something to drain it already. As for oil, I may use one; I mean, oil changes go pretty quick already, and I'll have skid plates so it may make it a little more convenient.

    Go with a femco instead as just as easy and 100% secure without a chance of false opening.

    I have had Fumoto Valves on my diesel trucks, for the past 20+ years. They are great. I plan on putting one on my 3.6, after the free oil changes run out.
