They are the best to stabilize the unit, If you then added some scissor jacks before your axles you could have a dance and wouldn't feel anything moving around. I agree the king pin really is not worth the money, but it's better then nothing. My argument with (MYSELF) Why I have two landing leg's 4 ' from it.

You are correct. We had scissor jacks before the JT's because my wife sits above the tires doing needle work. together with both products it is great.

JT's have made an incredible difference for us. Installation was very straightforward and easy. We are very pleased with them stabilizing our scissor jacks.

Do you put them in all 4 corners, or just the back?

I have JT stabilizers on front and rear. The (4) on the front attached to the landing jack legs and extend to the center frame and towards the rear. When then are in place the front end won't move at all.

Are the JT Strongarms by Lippert better than the BAL Lock-Arm Stabilizing Bars or the Happijack Universal Travel Trailer Stabilizers?

We have a bumper pull toy hauler.... which I may add has a crappy tongue jack we are going to replace with a heavy duty tongue jack.

They work the same way so they should all do the same.

I would think the amount of installation work would be the big thing.

As far as mounting extra scissor jacks by the axles. I assume you mount of the front side. Approx how close to the axles do you want to be?
