bleeding master cylinder

I have always bench bleed a new master cylinder. My understanding is that is to get the air out of the master and as most are angled in the car all the air cannot get out and therefore you do it level on the bench and then transfer to the car. In my case the master sits level in the truck under the floor. It has a trans crossmember that means you kind of have to wind the master around it for the install. I have a hole in the floor above the master. What I am thinking of is to install the master in the truck, install the two bleeder lines back into the master, stroke the brake pedal until I see no more air bubbles and then hook the truck lines up and do a normal brake bleed. Am I missing why that won't work.

As long as the MC is bled before the brakes are hooked up, it doesnt know if its on the bench or under the vehicle............go right ahead and bleed it .

I see no reason your proposed method wouldn't work fine.
