I would but its kinds hard to measure without taking my tail light off. It uses all of the factory mounting screws curving all the way down the length of the tail light!! I thought about making one myself until i found out that a guy on the forum (98Plum Crazy) makes them. Great product, very stout, hasn't failed me yet no complaints, looks good great price, and fast shipping. Take a look here.......well worth the money. I've got a 3ft Firestik antenna on mine, looks and works great.

I would have done that but that thread was closed due to some issues of not receiving products or something, not sure exactly what. But I understand about not being able to measure it, its all good! If you were to just guess, how far do you think it extrudes past the hatch? Like 1.5"?

Yeah I guess there was some problems with the seller

But I appreciate it man! Don't bother pulling it off, I'm mainly concerned about the dimensions that extrude out of the hatch when it's closed.

Going tomorrow to get new tires put on. The 32's are getting pretty bald so I decided to bump up to 33x12.50x15's. I'm going with some Cooper Discoverer STT's for $183 per tire on www.treaddepot.com you can't go wrong. I read countless reviews online and I'd say 97% of them were nothing but great. I'll throw some pictures up as soon as I get them on. Here's a teaser picture for now.....
