I like the idea of having an actual drain plug, but was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to remove the lower hose. Mine came right off (and back on) with zero struggle. Could be how low miles and clean my truck is though. I imagine it would be much more difficult were there road crud build up and deterioration.

I found it so easy - using the procedure I described earlier - that I plan on doing it every other year. I'll just filter it and put it back in until I hit 5 years. Then I'll flush & change it.

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... welfare for illegals... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?
