Replace scissor jacks on Wildcat 28RK

Bought a used Wildcat 28RK on new years day from an individual. He had damaged one of the rear scissor jacks. So, I need to replace it. Looks like you buy them in pairs. So, my question is, 24" or 36". Looks like the factory installed are 24" but I've read people complaining that they weren't long enough. Have any of you replaced 24" with 36" ones. If so, how has that worked out. Looks like they might have to be mounted a little more inbound.

Thanks
Phillip

Just an idea that would work with just about any jack size.

That is a GREAT idea!!! I like the height and the simplicity of it, I know the strength will be great as well.

To the OP, Not sure about the length you need but I do know that the less you have to extend them the better off you will be. The longer they get extended the wobblier they are. Ford's idea is perfect!

Cool idea. I once built a waterbed and had those under it to help support it.
