Have you used the original pads over the years or replaced ever so often?

Yes that is the one. 4 years ago it was around $35, if I remember correctly.

Craig & Glenn,

One of the Mods that is popular with the FR 5er owners is taking 2 pieces of Diamond Plate and sandwiching a leveling block between them, pop riviting the contraption together then bolting that to your landing gear and rear stab jacks.

I wonder if something similar would work as a permanent solution for the Berk? Then you would not have to stow them in the basement (or crawl under to get them )

I always use wood planks under my jack pads. I believe I have the old style and just maybe I have been delaying the punch-through because my jacks leave impressions of the nut on the wood, This means that all the weight is not on the pad's seating ring for the piston. Should there be punch-through, the piston would not be heading for china if the pad was on dirt.
