Stabilizer Jacks

Tmas, you said you had "x chicks." I'm jealous; I wish I had that many.

You should also use block under the jack pads. The less distance that you have to lower you jacks gives you more stability. I use the plastic pads and sure helps. I get some movement. but to me Iam not bothered by it. Later RJD

I use wood blocks under mine and then lower the jacks until they seem firmly on the wood. I also have 4 chocks - two on each side that sit between the tires - sort of the same effect as the X-chock I guess. I don't seem to notice much movement unless the jacks aren't firmly down.
