[DML] Re: A couple of exciting new products available at DCS 06 in Pheasant Run



Yes Jake is right. It is a minimal loss in trunk height at the bar 
but the performance you gain is worth it. I was still able to fit my 
golf bag in there but I do not have a tournament bag which I doubt 
would fit even without the strut bar. Chris, please stop by our 
booth on Saturday and check it out. If Jake is available I am sure 
he will be happy to show anyone how it is installed in his trunk. 
Thanks!

Peter Kuchan
