Thats what I had, but this time my axle is gonna have a full truss so mounting will have to be a little different. I am not 100% for sure what I am going to do. I got alot to do before I get to that point and need to decide.

Tie it into the truss & I think you'll be happy. You are right, you have other things to worry about because you know this will always work.
