RIGHT!?!I’m running through the EXACT same issue, was hoping there would be some replies but I’ll check back later. I actually just ordered the large one today but am seriously thinking about canceling and switching. I like the look of the short better I think, and I doubt I’ll ever need the full size, aside for a RTT down the line.
If I understand the Maximus-3 installation correctly (please correct me if I’m wrong) the brackets, mounting locations and drill holes are identical on the JLU regardless if it is holding a Long or Short Pioneer platform.
So in all of my (limited) wisdom here, I could order the short platform and if it does not suit my needs, I could then do a one-for-one swap with the Long platform using the existing Maximus-3 mount already installed.
Anyone out there experienced with this platform swap?
