The only drawback is if you ever have carpet installed. You'll have to be able to get to the door. The battery box I have is stainless steel and drops down to get access to the battery. I don't drive my truck rain and certainly wouldn't drive through puddles. They also make main leaf springs with reversed eyes for the front and rear. I went that route before I changed over to a Volare front end. That way you can still keep half your leaves in and still drop it 3" in the front and 6" in the rear and still have a nice ride. The jumper wire I used was a short chunk of battery cable connected to the battery post on the starter.
