Understood. But.. just something else to monkey with when you are already obviously in a less than preferred situation. I've seen rigs with their nose in the air in a very precarious position, maybe even on a tipping point and climbing up on said rig and opening the hood may not be the best idea at that time.
Obviously that's the minority situation but still, even if you are just simply stuck in a mud hole it's just one less thing to mess with.
When things aren't working out like you want it's always best to apply the KISS principle but in this case I have to apply it before you guys ever receive a mount.... if possible.
