I have had my FASS titanium 150 on for many years now and never had an issue with it being tucked up under the front of the bed. I spend my winters above 9000' in Colorado and have never had it gell. I travel between New Mexico and Colorado all year long with several trips into Wyoming, Kansas, Nebraska and Texas. A mix between interstate, 2-lane, gravel and 1000's of miles off road. Knock on wood I have yet to ever have anything damage my set-up. Just my . If something does happen and it gets damaged or dies I'll be going the mechanical route as many here and elsewhere have had great success with them.
