New power rack install?

It's been a couple years since I last tackled this job, and I need a few pointers.

But you have to admit, when you're in a tight parking lot trying to sneak into that parking spot, all the elements are working against you. Low speed, big beefy tires, and a turning radius similar...

Yeah, probably not going to put a manual rack on it. You do, of course know how fox bodys turn without power assist, right? They don't! LOL


I do have kinda beefy tires all around, though.
