JT's Strong Arm Jack Stabilizers

Finished installing the JT's Strong Arm Jack Stabilizers on our Columbus 320rs and it's made a big difference even when the washer and dryer are operating.
Easy to install and a great value.
I'll need to see how they work after a number of trips raising and lowering the stablilizing jacks to make a final recommendation.

I'm looking at buying a 320rs and it looks like the mounting brackets are already installed.
Did you have to install the brackets or are they a standard feature?

Did u install 3 sets. (2 in front; 1 in rear?). Was it hard to get to bare metal of the frame or did you have to drill through the wrap around plastic body molding.

I konw. A lot of questions. But I was just looking at these yetserday.

Make your own brackets and adapt these:S Line Ratcheting Pickup or SUV Bar Ė 60in. - 72in. Adjustment | Cargo Bars| Northern Tool + Equipment. I would use 2 in back and 2 in front.

The JT system is to give you side to side stabilization.
The level up is just to level the unit
Not overkill to have both. I would have both

Yes, what made the job so easy was the preinstallation of the brackets. If our salesman had told us about the system we would have ordered it with the unit, but as it was it was an easy job. There are four struts at the front and two struts at the rear.
