Jt strongarms and 4 point autolevel.

Has anyone installed jt strongarms on there 4 point "6 jacks" auto leveling system?
2) jacks in the front. "Leveling"
2) jacks in the middle "stabilizing"
2 jacks in the rear "leveling"

If so how did you install the rear arms on the jack?

To do it correctly you would need 4 more bronze bushings and two more u clamps such as the ones used in the front .

Called lippert this morning and both gentlemen were clueless of what I was trying to do or what I needed .

Following too see how this works, and if there is a need for the Strongarms. My unit is pretty solid with the six jacks and X-chocks. Trying to figure out if there is a huge benefit or not. I have seen many post regarding the Strongarms but have never had them.

I've got the fronts installed.
Still working out how to get them adjusted with the auto level.
Rears can't be installed until I get two more swivel clamps and bushings.

Just make them. Bushings can be obtained at Lowes/HD/Northern Tool or use Heim joints which are better than bushings.

Get a hold of JT themselves or Lippert parts dept. and have the bushings and clamps sent to you. When I got mind I was missing one bushing they sent it to me, had the clamp. I'm sure you can get two more sets to do what you want. Remember you really have 4 front legs, which with there hard wear they only send 2 sets in the package for the front. When you put them on Stabilizers back you don't need them. The original reason for there design.

Does OC need a road trip to the cold Midwest to help fab a bushing? Might be a nice thing to do..

Would not use bushings, I would replace all bushings with Heim joints.

Bushing cannot be replaced with a heim.
It's "not" that kind of bushing.
