I have heard of others having problems with it. The hex just slipped in the plug. I was able to rotate it slightly with a bolt extractor, but no joy. Broke out the left handed drill bits .

What I did have issue with that I wasn’t expecting was the coolant lines. Had to loosen the supports to push them out of the way to get the pan in.

Maybe there were pans produced by different suppliers causing the drain plug differences?

While removing/installing my pan was just a bit tight, I just had to slide it out/in tipping one end of the pan upward near the lines but I definitely did not have any problem.

These trucks should all be exactly the same?

Very few things that are mass produced are EXACTLY the same. Just depends on how hard you look.
