removing drain plugs on an XLT
I got big hands, and they don't really fit where the drain plugs on the XLT are at (what a STUPID design!!!).
Whats the best tool to use to loosen/tighten the drain plugs on these things?
They need to supply a ratcheting drain plug wrench... hah.

This is really a PITA! My hands just dont fit in there and I haven't been able to find a good tool to use yet. A wrench works, but its slow and makes me just want a punch a hole in the back of the #$(@ thing!
Man what a stupid location!

Check out Lowes or somewhere like that for some sort of racheting universal size wrench.... just a thought. You might try some silicone lube on the plug threads too, so when you start losening them they turn easier; I use my fingers once they are spinning well.

Thought I'd update this year old thread.
I recently put on an R&D ride plate... WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS SOONER@!#
This fixes most of the "hard to reach drain plug" problem!!
R&D needs to use this as a selling point.
I'd buy/install the plate just for this reason alone!

Yeah I am a knuckle dragger too and I have come to realize that they are a PITA!!! I just changed out my rideplate and it still sucks!!!
