Rockler Pro Lift Router Lift (8-1/4'' x 11-3/4'' plate)
Also Available – 55803 Pro Lift Router Lift (Large Plate), fits 9-1/4" x 11-3/4" table openings (Including Kreg, JessEm, Woodpecker and more)
Two patent-pending features raise the Rockler Pro Lift into a class of its own: ultra-fast ''Quick-Gear'' height adjustments and ''Snap-Lock'' tool-free insert ring changes. Push the button to release the insert ring, then wind the Quick-Gear to raise the bit above the table in just seconds. Once the bit is installed, quickly lower it, click in the insert ring, and use the fine adjustment gear to set the final height to within 0.001''. All this is achieved more quickly, more efficiently, and more intuitively with the Rockler Pro Lift. Raise your woodworking to a new level.

Will my router fit?
The Pro Lift accepts router motors with a 4.2'' diameter (13.85'' circumference). Examples include the Porter-Cable 7518 and 7519.
Optional adapters (listed below) are available to mount routers with smaller motors. If you are unsure of your router motor's diameter, check the manual, or measure the circumference with a tailor's tape. Measuring the circumference is easier than measuring the diameter. The optional collars have an expansion gap, so they will accept motors measuring 1/8'' larger or smaller in diameter than the listed spec.

The lift seems well made and precise. The Hi and Lo gears promise to be a real convenience. The snap lock ring insert feature is quite nice too. Just be aware that the Bench Dog table may need to be modified a bit to install this lift. I had a couple spots that I had to trim (which resulted in the loss of two leveling screws) and one spot that had to be morticed for the snap lever bracket clearance. No big deal but needed nonetheless. I can't believe I waited so many years to finally get one of these.

Rockler Bench Dog® 40-150 ProLift Router Adjustment System Item #: 28827 and it works just fine with my bench dog protop I see the plate is the same size as my pro lift so it should work
As for the second part of your question, this lift will require one of the adapter rings (#57022 to be exact) to size it down for the Bosch 1617, or any router with a round motor housing 3-1/2" in diameter. There's another ring (#50098) that fits Makita and others with smaller 3-1/4" motor housings.
Check the Rockler catalog for the adapters as they mention which adapter is used for whatever router.
Can't answer your question specifically, you'd have to contact SawStop directly. I'm answering this to give you something else to think about. I bought a SawStop a year ago with the 52' fence extension. What I did was remove the black extension table, Installed a wood frame to hold Rockler's router table that had a cutout for the Prolift. With the router table being orientated 90 degrees to the way SawStop did theirs I can push long pieces of wood through the router table and use the rest of the table saw as an outfeed table and support the wood.
