Thanks, and yes my rotisserie moves up and down with the main cooking grate. Instead of connecting the lift cables to the cooking grate I fabricated 10" extensions out of some 2"X2" tubing so the lift point is actually about a foot above the main cooking grate and I made the attachment point for the rotisserie brackets just above that. So the same winch & pulley mechanism that lifts the main cooking grate also lifts the rotisserie. And you are so right, it is a really nice feature to have. I just put a grill thermometer on the main cooking grate and adjusted the height to keep a 325* cook.
Edit: FYI, details and photos are in my build thread, there is a link back on page #1 as part of my original post.

I found that when I built mine, it was great feature to be able to raise and lower the rod and motor as the fire varied throughout the cook.
I used Unistrut for the verticals;
Weber 26.75 OTG w/CI grates & SJ/WSM Mini
Home built 24"x72" reverse flow stick burner trailer with 18"x44" grill w/CI grates and upright SS gas oven/smoker.
Home built 48" fire pit with a 30"x30" Santa Maria style ranch grill.
Home built lump charcoal retort, iGrill & a bunch of other cooking toys.
