A-Pillar 4 Gauge Pod Question???

I've been debating going with a 4 gauge A-Pillar pod over the 3 gauge one (in case I add a 4th gauge down the road). One shop guy told me I would lose full functional use of the overhead visor as it would come down and make contact with the pod. I was wondering if you 4 gauge guys have experienced this? Are you still able to use the visor enough to block out sunlight in your eyes? Do any of you wish, dang, I wish I would have gone with the 3 gauge pod over the 4?

I have a 4 gauge pillar pod and it does prevent the visor from going down all the way. I'm still happy with it. I can still lower it parially to block the sun when I need to.

My visor hits my 4-pod. No worries though - unclick the visor, rotate it and swing it right behind the pod. Not perfect but works.
