Body mounting with full cage?

What are downsides to hard mounting body and cage to frame?

This is regarding jeep build in my signature.

by hard mounted do you mean bolted or welded?
bolted is a no brain. not sure is there is a down side to it.
welding it your downside would be having to remove it for any reason

Anything trail only gets hard mounted.

Hard mounted with sandwich plates and bolts at 8 points. I don't even have body mounts anymore. Drives 100% better, no longer has a wet noodle feeling and steering is more like a direct order instead of a sugestion. No creaking, cracking or vibrations. Wouldn't do it any other way.
