Are you guys talking about the large frame member or the small 1/2" tubing connecting the jack cylinders together?

As a side note, from day one I noticed that both rear jacks sit at a slight inward angle. I can see that the brackets welded to the frame are cut with a slight angle. Here's a pic of the right rear. You can see just a slight angle, and nothing is bent. It's more apparent with the jack down. Click image for larger version

The large frame member that is part of the Ford chassis is bent, and it's missing the small 1/2" tube between the jacks that other units all seem to have.

Mine does not have the cross tubing connection the jack cylinders together. This looks like a retro.

Vince, with the offset of the jack cylinder center line and the center line of the frame, caused by the bracket on the jack, and the bracket on the frame, without something to keep the jacks spread apart, it seems like a rotation is bound to happen. I hope I'm explaining that right. It makes sense in my head at least.

I understand the concept but without another support knee at the end, any significant side load, it would just collapse both jacks. IMHO.

Mr Clemans, will you please chime in. Do I need to get my 2014, just out of WARRENTY, repaired before a collapse?

Maybe that's why they have a slight inward angle to begin with. So they are compressing each other in and not able to go out?

Is this your unit? Did this unit come from factory with the small tubing?
