Stabilizer bars

I want to install some stabilizer bars on my Sierra 355QBQ 5th wheel. The front presents a problem with the spare and an under carriage sliding drawer unit bring in the way. Moving them doesn't seem to be an option as there are various lines in the way. I was thinking about just installing on the back of the unit. JT Strongarm comes in a set of 6. No way of purchasing a smaller set of 2 or 4. I thought about BAL lock arm bars because they sell in sets of two. Would I need only 2 bars. One for each jack or more. Anyone have an answer or have installed and do you pictures of your setup?

Check into the SteadyFast system. There is only 3 cross bars and you have some flexibility for what is installed where. You might be able to avoid this drawer.

I've used the Steadyfast system on my travel trailer and liked them. I checked with Steadyfast and they are willing to sell me a 2 bar set for the back at nearly $200. Seems a little high. The drawer unit comes all the way out to the e edge when they are closed up leaving no access to the frame beyond the front of the drawer.
