Do you care if a vehicle's hood has a prop rod?

Yknow this got me thinking, and ironically my Ram has the best feeling steering of all the vehicles I’ve owned. It just feels good… plus if you’re out in snow or on gravel having some fun, as the rear end comes around it just wants to turn itself into the slide.
You likely have the good old unequal length upper and lower control arm front suspension and a perimeter frame. Maybe even a 4 link solid rear axle. Shades of vintage GM A-body that we all respect - but modified with high located upper arm ala Honda Accord ULCA. Very good indeed, but not the fantastic vintage GM B/C body front end which includes a Brake Reaction Rod that REALLY locates the LCA under stress.
