    What's your opinion. like, dislike why?

    I have one on my pump, damn thing is always in the way. Can anyone give me a good reason to keep it on?

    Thanks

    I bought one 3 years ago and never used it because it looks like it would be in the way

    the very first thing to go in the garbage on all my new trucks was the pump cover.

    But can you tell me why does it cause problems or just inconvenient?

    If your talking about the rubber pump condom it falls in both categories and if you pay someone to work on your pumps add expensive. Removing and reinstalling one of the rubber covers adds an hour to the job.

    ^^what he said.^^

    and i also noticed every pump that wore one of those condoms was all rusted within 3 years due to moisture buildup under the cover.

    Sounds like the cover is coming off. You all made good points. Thanks for the replies.
