Tower Change question

I want to change the zft3 tower on my 2010 X14v to a zft2 or zft4. Want an even quicker way to put up and down. We use the boat a lot, but I have to collapse the tower each time i use the boat due to boat garage height. This wears on the plastic tower knobs (on and off) and replacing them at 70$ a piece is not fun because they just wear out to easy in my opinion (coupling section knob mostly) . I want the simplicity of the zft2 and zft4 (unscrew/turn, pull and drop it down)
I can fix the holes from the front tower section by using the custom gas caps on MasterCraft by Design to "cap" the holes, so that's not an issue. I just want something better and not have to drop another 80k to get it.

Can anyone advise on my possible options.

I don't think your boat can handle the loading of the zft2/4 tower. I'm sure the new boats have a lot more reinforcement where the 2 point tower mounts than what your boat has. You can call your dealer or MC and ask, but I'm pretty sure the answer will be no.
