    I always run a chain over the axles. The biggest reason I can see for not going to the frame is the suspension *might* compress on a hard bump and allow slack in the strap or chain and the strap or chain might unhook resulting a world of **** raining down upon you. This isnt a fullsize but its the same principal and you get the idea.
