JT's Strong Arm Jack Stabilizer system

Has anybody installed this system on a Travel Trailer ? If so did you put the 4 arms in the front by the hitch or in the back end of the trailer ? Looking to buy this system and wanted to know , I'm thinking of installing the 4 arms towards the back end of the TT..

I just did this past weekend but on a 5er. The 4 are on the front in my case because that seems to be where the bulk of my weight is that needs stabilizing. I cannot say I have seen 4 in the back but if that's where it seems to make the most sense in your application then why not...good luck!

I've looked at installing the JT Strongarms kit on my TT. It comes with 6 arms. I would probably put 4 on the front and 2 on the rear. Depending on your holding tank outlet you may not be able to install an arm in the front to back direction on that side.

I put 6 arms on my 5th wheel... "4 on the front and 2 on the rear."

Consider SteadyFast- less arms and the handle is easier on the hands. I've had a JT knockoff and the SteadyFast and the SteadyFast is a better product overall.

Rock solid

I installed JT bars on my 2008 Cardinal TT. First I replaced the existing stabilizers with four 10.000 lb scissor jacks. Then I attached the JT bars to them. 4 in front, 2 in rear. I also had to bolt a 3/16" angle iron cross member at the rear to have a solid attachment for the rear JT bars. I will say my set up is rock solid.
