Looks nice Willy, this is the one Id like to go with too if I ever get away from the stock box. VCM looks more OEM than OEM.

Career politicians suck; that doesnt mean the rest of us have to as well.

That's the same reason that I picked it, as well. I don't want to have to take it off and re-install the OEM system every other year. So far, it fooled a couple of techs in our shop who thought it was OEM!

I too like the riv nut idea. Just installed and looking here for issues I have. Brackets off enough to turn push pins into single use. My OCD knows its there!
