I'm not near my car to measure for you but I run the Trakpower 4800 and I had to shim the rear deck with 2 .30 washers. Fits fine and there doesn't seem to be any problems with shimming the rear deck to fit this.

Good luck.

If you run the SMC hard case saddle pack you don't have to do any shimming on the topdeck. And the stock D4 body fits perfectly.

Thanks for the info. The SMC saddle pack fits perfectly with the stock body without mod on my WCE. Would much appreciate suggestion on the weight required to balance the setup.
