i see you are smart and mount the HL in an easily accessable location-- not buried under trail gear, in a location to scratch the paint, etc getting it off or secured where it does double duty as a bumper stopping rocks. I'm curoius why you removed the foot pad? Is it due to space limitations? If its the rattle, we have a solution-- take off the foot pad, squirt in a good gob of clear silicone and push it back into position. After a few days it will dry and remain semi-soft-- and presto! no more rattles. a small length of velcro will wrap around the climbing bar and the handle eliminating rattles there as well.
looks good-- just keep it well lubricated. The HL jacks have a way of drying out and are theu prone to failure when u need it most. I keep mine well lubricated and the climbing pins, vital components, etc are enclosed in a small water-proof canvas bag held in place w/ zip ties, so this way, after months and months of sitting on the rig, it will be in ready condition-- no more hunting up WD40 on the trail just to get ur dried-up HL to properly function.
Look it's a 4.6!
