Looks like they have an oil cooler/pump fitted to the Grenadier in SA

In the video from South Africa, that drain plug and the hose are completely exposed under the vehicle. See the screen shot I took from the video below. I'm going to assume that this is not how it will look in the production-version of the vehicle...

That was not fitted to the 2b vehicle I saw Monday morning.Judging by the other engineering that is on the vehicle if they were installing a pump as above they would do a better job than that. At least one would hope so.
A banjo bolt at the most vulnerable part of the assembly is not the best idea in the world.
But I’ve had some pretty bad ideas over the years ?

I’ll just put this down to data analysis on INEOS part. 


but good spot.  Countyv8

Someone said they had early issue with transfer case overheating and that they were looking into a cooler for some sort of “tow package”

That would make sense. Well at least they are trying to cone up with solutions and that has to be a good thing.
