Thanks.....thats the kind of info I am looking for.:smokin: I was worried about electonics....computer stuff.I drove mine for a week without. Got quite a bit of mud in the engine bay. For that reason alone I would re attach mine. BTW, I didn't use the crappy plastic push rivets. I just ran a tap through the holes in the tab's and used a stainless bolt and washer. Just took a few minutes and will make any future removal and re attachment much easier.
