Default Drive guard props to the gate distance

I'm building a drive guard on my trailer. What is the norm distance from the props to the gate? VV

This is a really smart mod, I should make as well VV.

Plus the 6-10 inches DD recommends could also be a "crumple zone" should some Douche bag hit you.
