It isn't a "good" idea..more of a strange somewhat silly idea. I don't see it hurting anything for very short usage, though I wouldn't do that sort of thing on my truck.

i will not do it to mine. it is not fun when in the shop. when it breaks on its own that is one thing, but if i break it , it is another.

It sounds like to me you can run like a relay type of a switch for it and controlling it whenever you want.
