If so, did you get the system installed at the HWH factory in Iowa or elsewhere? Thanks for your input.
I don't have them, but had been interested enough to try and find out how much they weighed (a short while back). When I discovered that they would add something slightly more than 225 lbs I decided not to do that. It's hard to determine from the hwh site, such as this link:
Makes it sound like they weigh about 95 lbs: http://www.hwh.com/ml50520.pdf
But then on sprinter-source someone had figured out from other information such as amazon shipping weights that hwh was only giving the weight for a single jack at each end, so you have to double it, then also add the weight of aome extra hardware and components. Gets you up to 225lbs or more.
(check out post #27 in this thread, and the entire thread is worth reading).

The BlackJack system is mentioned there, but I know nothing about it.
For me the weight (even if I removed the stabilizers on my 2401R Forester MBS) is a problem. Still not sure I'd want to spend $4,000 for the HWH system, either ... if the price mentioned in the previously referenced thread is correct.
