Would it kill to incorporate an access panel for oil changes on the V8?

Not sure if itís the same for this setup because I have the RCI aluminum version with the bumper filler plate. For my setup itís just 4 bolts and it drops for complete access. In my case, I prefer to drop it because I can clean the inside of the skid, inspect for any leaks, etc. With any oil change itís getting rid of the old oil thatís the time consuming part, I see dropping the skid as a non issue. Now that being said, if I had the heavier steel version, I may feel differently...

I've got the RCI aluminum ones (Victory didn't have theirs out yet, they're in driving range...) but I don't drop the skid. Looking at Victory's skids, I imagine you can do the same thing I do - get an old plastic jug and cut it roughly in half (I used an old windshield wiper jug) and put it under the filter and then you can just reach in and remove, jug diverts into your catch can. And as long as the truck is level, the drain plug access hole is just big enough not to catch the stream.

Beside the fact that it's REALLY not that difficult to lower the front of the skid plate to do an oil change on the V8, if you actually look at their website, you will see they have either updated the skid plate or have an option for the V8.

Iíve actually been meaning to try that, as I read about that trick in another thread awhile back. They used a ďform a funnelĒ, but your idea is obviously much more cost effective and repurposing something that would otherwise get thrown out anyway. Iíll give that a shot next time, thanks.
