    "They've been great. They've taken a hit or two without issue, they fit well and then let me do easy oil changes. Not much more to ask for. On that note actually, since you have the skids on, now might be a good time for an oil drain valve. Makes life a whole lot easier. On the diff cover front, I have Riddlers and I'm very happy with them as well both on price and performance."


    @icrashbikes Would you mind sending me a couple pics of the valves?

    I am thinking about a filter relocation system

    Is there anything that I need to worry about with that valve? Does it leak by? Is there some sort of fail safe mechanism other than the clip? I am just worried about oil leakkng. I may just be paranoid lol

    That's the one. I've had mine on 4 years. Just changed the oil Saturday without a hitch. I certainly wouldn't run this valve without a skid, but you'd have to drop the jeep off a cliff to damage it with the RH4X4 skid on. The safety clip is substantial, I can't imagine a scenario where it would fail

    I greatly appreciate your first hand experience; On that note, I love the RH4X4 skids

    Hey JK Joe, I'm in the market for replacing my hardtop permanently with a soft top for all weather conditions, no leaks. What soft top are you running and does it fit this criteria? I have a 2016 4dr JKU Sport.

    Hey briaros6, I'm looking to replace my hardtop with an All Weather soft top that doesn't leak. How's this top working out for you and would you recommend it for rainy conditions. I have a 2016 4dr JKU Sport.
