Halltrail TJ skid owners + Fumoto Valve

Post by sherwoodiv » Thu Mar 05, 2015 12:04 am

I was curious how much bending people with halltrail skids have had near the oil drain plug on TJs. I got one of those Fumoto valves since I'm lazy and on my YJ I've not found the exact funnel system that wont overfill and get oil everywhere. I thought I would try out the Fumoto valve with the nipple. Here is a pic of it installed without the skid. The YJ had no bending but I was only running blues.

Is that sticking out past the skid? I would remove that immediately and put the stock bolt back in.

Hello thread archeologist!

It can't stick out past the skid.

7 month review...
The skid also hasn't flinched to several beat downs. It doesn't look any closer to the valve. I think I'm good, until I'm not good, even then I bet the nipple will deform before it leaks.

Ha, I swear this thread was at the top. I didn't go digging for sure.

That's awesome.
