Sliding battery tray

In order to make battery removal easier, I purchased a Morryde sliding battery tray.
The problem is that the depth of the battery compartment does not allow for the tray to slide out properly. In order to build it up to the proper height I need about 8”.
Has anyone installed one of these slide trays?

I just installed a Moryde slide out in the front compartment to hold my generator. I used wood to build a base to raise the slide out so it could extend beyond the door frame. I built the base using the box beam technique so it would be strong enough to hold a running generator. Box beams are basically two sides of plywood separated by a 2x4. I built a couple box beams so it would be strong enough. Using glue and screws, to assemble the beams, I ended up with an extremely rigid base so I have no doubt it will last. I will post a video of the installation on youtube but if you need to see pics sooner, send an email to me.
