    Get a Fumoto valve. Without it, the oil change on the Raptor will defeat you and make you look stooopid. :cool:

    I never had a puddle of oil like that in all the years of doing car maintenance.

    If you got a metal pan, you can install the Fumoto valve. It’s a brass ball valve that replaces the plug.

    Oil from the filter drains down through 2 opening in the skid plate.
