JT strong arm brackets are an OPTION from factory. They are not standard build with Columbus model line. Look at page 11 of 2013 Columbus brochure. Right hand column. Strong Arm Stabilizers are listed as on option.
Dealers may add them or order from factory with them installed. This is a dealer level item not a factory giveaway, retrofit, etc.
All caps in an e-mail denotes shouting. If you are shouting, know what you are shouting about. I don't think anyone has questioned the JT's being an option. The issue has to do with the brakets and what was an option at the time.
