Yes it is more work but some purest like to keep their stuff factory and it is a working theft deterrent. Some idiot tried stealing my pick up a few years back and if he knew how to bust the column properly he would of made off with it but lucky he was dumb and the turn signal wiring, high beam rod and the Ign switch rod got twisted up and he couldn't steer it. They did break my rear wing window and made off with the stereo and left it sitting there idling all nigh as well as about 5 other peoples stereos that lived in the apt complex I was living in.
