I have had them on both of my Ford MH's and my personal cars and I would suggest getting the one with the nipple. I just installed one on my CAT C7. I have one on my Wrangler and haven't had any issues with the valve getting hit by debris. It makes changing oil much easier.

Here is a link to one that is made in North America. This valve is what the big fleets use. They are usually at the large truck shows and can be ordered on line. I use them on all my vehicles/. Nothing hanging down . http://www.nospillsystems.com/\
My only concern with the valve is running over something and knocking the valve off. It must be possible or on manufacturers web site they suggest pulling over and double check valve. Has anyone ever had one leak or get busted and what would you do if your on the side of the road and you have oil pouring out. Hopefully you get pulled over before blowing engine.
