No, no, no!!!
You take a 4" (preferably clean) toilet flange...
Super glue magnets to the flange, paint it with black be liner, flip it over and make a Yeti Rambler holder!

Wink

Having a half-assed cup holder is better than no cup holder!
And
It works as a cup holder or a cell phone holder

Maybe Santa will bring me something purtier???
Note to self: Be Good!

The reason why the doghouse is smaller in some front engine buses is because the frame dips a few inches where the engine sits.

Bluebird started doing this in 1999 with the A3 generation of the All American. Prior to this all the front engine Bluebird buses had massive doghouses that came up to the driver's hip/elbow.

The downside to the smaller doghouse means less ground clearance in the front. Our buses have slammed their front bumpers on particularly steep driveways before.

Ah... Makes perfect sense!
I thought the drivetrain centerline from the front of the engine to the transmission tailshaft should typically be the same on most configurations, but I'm Diesel engine ignorant.
