Welded two steel U brackets to them and slipped the U bracket over the 2 x 4 tube in front of the axles. Had to narrow the jack mounting angles. Got the jacks from trading with Herk and then trading them to the LCI technicians in Goshen that were replacing youroo's jacks.

It looks like the 3rd picture down has scissor jacks welded behind the tire? Is that true? Looks like it may work.

No scissors jacks, just 2 sets of stabilizer jacks and the front landing jacks.
