^^^GREAT PRODUCT--I've had mine for about 5 years. I even ordered an extra set of the mounts for when the PowerDome is done.

Those short Explorer ones are pretty cheap to replace if they're bad though!

Love em. I was a little weary of them for a second, thinking that it looks a little side restricted. I don't think it would be that big of a deal though.
