Hmmm...  let me try to make this more clear...

My valve is exposed to the elements currently, has been intermittently
for 2 years 40k (long bellypan story).  I beat the bejeezus out of the
car (suspension travel is er 'realized') on all surfaces (dirt, snow,
gravel) at all times.  I use the car to plow the end of my driveway (2'
deep is no prob).  My valve operates flawlessly.

You're right though, I have seen the valve not fit on another car as
well as it did on mine, yes.

I have one, but I don't particularly like the exposed ball in the Fumoto
ball valve, seems to me that with time the will be water, dirt and salt
will work itself into the valve and cause corrosion.  Also, there is
close clearance between the valve and the swaybar, on some cars there's
enough clearance to install the valve.

Didn't someone post another aftermarket valve on this list?  I know
are other options out there.
