When I was asking the service manager at my dealer about the JT Strong arms he quoted me around $500.00 for the set. He said when ordering them it came with both, front and rear. That's why I said only $130.00 for the BAL brand. I also only put them on the front of my 5er.

All the commercially sold ones are rip offs, you can make your own a lot cheaper if you have the facilities.

True, but not all of us have their own fabricating shop.

Finished the front install on mine today. The two hiccups I had were (a) I couldn't install the port side front frame bracket because the LP pipe is in the way--it runs right under the frame almost all the way back to the axles, so I need to change how/where that pipe goes, and I wasn't prepared for that today. The other hiccup (b) was that one of the arms, inside the little bung where you screw in the "T" handle, wasn't threaded! So that needs to go back to JT.

Hopefully I can get the rears on next weekend..

F350TH, I am hoping to find time to get these installed this weekend. On the front bars, did you mount to the front storage box using the reinforcing plates? If not where did you mount them?

I mounted them with the plates in the generator compartment. Was super easy.
