I just used pipe and bar stock I had. In the first picture you can see a bracket welded on the side to make sure the adaptor doesn't slide off the frame. As I said, there is a short smaller pipe inside welded to the plate on top and then the plate/pipe is welded to the outer pipe with the bracket on the side. Took longer to figure out how to do it than actually making it. I lift both wheels off the ground and agree, with you, the jack handle needs to be longer which is an easy fix if I could remember to do it.
