Well it simply doesn't keep up.. it draws power from the battery, and will completely drain it even with the jeep running, because the alternator won't charge it fast enough.

Which spacer? The ones that are welded to the rocker itself? Which picture on the site are you speaking of?

I'm sorry man, I don't have measurements for that, because it will change from jeep to jeep slightly, and depending on how accurate the bends are.

Just put the rocker into place on the side of the jeep, clamp it in place, and take a measurement.. that's all I did to get it, in the first place.
