As Airmapper said, the Jeeps are able to do it because of the hinge location. They also have another benefit in that the windshield does not go all the way down to the hood. This allows a gap to place something out of their direct line of sight, so it isn't an issue for them. If you mount to the hood, it's going to be in your line of sight. I wouldn't trust putting a 50+ pound chunk of steel on the piece of plastic in front of the windshield. That's just me though.

my thoughts exactly. it looks kind of cool but I don't think it's worth risking. Is the base resting on the hood?

I guess I just fail to recognize the benefits of it being there. It seems like it would still be easier to remove from the roof rails, and it isn't a danger to your passengers up there. I guess if you like it then more power to you though.
