There are 5 that fit the JT (and JL) if you input vehicle information they will narrow it to those 5.
I have the F-106 and it's the short nipple, don't remember the letter designater.
F-106S is the short.

IMO all that matters is the total cost.
Works out to be $1 dollar cheaper from the manufacturer compared to Amazon for Canadians once conversion is done. Amazon shipping is quicker though.

What about filter replacements?

I went with the Femco. These pics are not mine, they are from this website. The Femco looks less likely to drag a Walmart shopping bag posing at the Mall. I have a image to maintain.
Let me just say, that installation is wrong.

Why would someone install a valve with the handle down so it can snag on anything?
With me being from the piping world, the valve handle goes on top or on one of the sides, NEVER on the bottom.

With the handle on top, everything is protected by the pan. Although this person elected for the long nipple on the discharge side which does extend it below the pan.

Depending on how the start thread is indexed, may not have margins to align and properly index the valve handle to a better position. I have installed a multitude of Fumoto Valves over the years and the fiber washer they include does not always give enough to index it where you want without risk of either stripping the threads or inducing a leak at the washer from over tightening it.

Thanks for this! Just ordered a f316l and clip.

Last oil change with the artec skid was difficult and when oil was almost out drips forward onto the engine skid and makes a mess. Hopefully the 90 degree drain will be back far enough and drain straight down.

I've owned 3 Fumotovalves. They are super quality and highly recommended.

But I have worried about putting one on a Jeep because of the way it sticks out. The Femco looks like a better match if you don't have full underbody protection.

I had one on my jku with the lever pointing down since I had the rock hard skid plate with oil plug door. Worked great.

For my gladiator, I'm going to try a pump.
