KC makes a hood mount as opposed to a vent mount that allows for 3 lights as well. I have a total of 7 inches of lift and getting it off isn't bad. I have the hood lift system that allows the hood to stay up as well as assist in rising that takes the hood issue out of it. I only have a 48" though and probably will need a 60". Not sure that I will mount this there. I will have to see how far it sticks out each side.
