    It should need nothing more than adjusted - mine works great with 4".

    The cables on my truck dont even touch. They need to be at least 2 in longer just for the 2 ends to reach. Anyidea on how to get this work?

    You should be able to get atleast that much out of the adjuster. Take a look and see how much of the stud is showing.
