The big difference being the vulnerability of that filter, what might be a light nick or scrape to the oil pan would likely result in a bent/punctured and leaking filter. I know you don't take the "Chrome Sanctuary" off road, otherwise you would realize how vulnerable that filter is. Nothing wrong with the filter for on road use, as long as someone isn't to rambunctious with jumping curbs,etc..
Deep sump clearance issues have been discussed many times in the past, usually every time the subject arises (See above). I don't run one on my off road rig as i've been hung up on the standard one and it gets bashed regularly, I would have ripped that oil filter right off, even with it not extending below the pan.
