    can I cut to 2.5'' set-back instead of standard 4.5" setback on bob's mini jackplate? will it work?  then I want to paint it black because I have this....

    Sure you can, drill some new holes and slide the angles closer together. Or buy some 2" channel and drill the required holes. Or call a fab shop and tell them what you want, shouldn't be more expensive than Bob's.

    Yep, or the less expensive route would be to go with no set back and just use a riser plate.
