Thank you aqua man. I have a set of sissor jacks I will try next time I go out.
I think the equiflex suspension I have on it causes a lot of problems with the motion in the 5er.

I might have to disagree on the equiflex.
Bouncy movement would be more in "springs" and "rubber" tires.

I have a 2014 365SAQ and I have hydraulic jacks on the front and the electric jacks on the back . I installed JT's last year and try work awesome . In addition I have the x chalks and I have next to no movement. I was able to install with all items that came in the box. I will take some pics this weekend.

Mine seems good as is but I came from an entry level TT. That thing shook if you scratched your nose.

But I would like to say woo hoo, we have a factory Sierra rep now!

They said they would not install my JT's on hydraulic system do to the offset. but I could still use them on the front landing gear only with electric. The 2nd set mounted behind the rear wheels are at a 14 degree angle and can not be mounted. But in essence I really do not need them there because I will still have the rear stab. left on and that's where they are hooked to now. Why did the factory tell me no? yet they sell them on the big foot? VERY STRANGE......

I have a problem with my Wildcat and JT Strongs in the front. My spare tire is under the landing gear blocking the arms placement. I could relocate the spare to the back bumper but it's nice under the rig. Would I get got results with a tripod in the front and JT Strongs on the rear stabs?

Elind,
You can still put them on with spare in place.
Look at mine.

Don't quote me but I think last year if you bought a set at the rally they would install them for you!

My spare lays flat under and sticks out the front a few inches under the front door.
