I think we should do a pro's & con's of the pole mod.
1st, it just looks cool.
2nd, No need for tarp tensioners.
3rd, More room inside.
The only con that I can think of is a little weight gain of the poles, but offset by the tensioners.
And, I was a little worried that I was going to pop a pole thru the fly when I was measuring them for the cut.
