    It all goes to the same place, so as long as its a good connection it matter's not.

    Because all of your stock electrical is grounded to the same place on the frame/body.

    It all goes the same place, as long as it goes there it doesn't matter where you're physical connection is.

    That's the best ground, it's what I do. Unless you're dealing with a ton of power, any impedance issues you see with grounding to the body/frame won't matter so long as your connection is good.
