Got finished with Weezer and Sneak's 5er. Installed roll out drawer, removed rear stab jacks and reinforced the legs, installed alum tread plate covered Linx blocks, reworked Revolution wedge by filling in slot and smoothed the sides, installed alum tread plate covered Linx blocks on landing jacks and drilled and pinned the end caps for rear bumper. Now off to shower, shave and out to dinner at Red Lobster. Super nice folks, fun to be around even if he does pull with a FoMoCo.

The only thing I noticed was Red Lobster

OC what is the idea behind diamond plate covered lynx blocks? Also, how did you reinforce the stabs?

Removed my spare tire out from under the 5er before it gets knocked off and disappears.

Use alum diamond plate on top to bolt to the stab pads and plate on the bottom to keep the gravel/rocks from breaking the plastic Lynx blocks. Reinforcing the legs is splitting a pc of 2-1/2" sq x 1/8" wall tubing and welding it to the outside of the legs to prevent bending at the center where the struts are bolted.

If it would EVER stop raining I would install OC's roll out drawer! As it is I am stuck doing inside jobs, so I installed the Blue Streak we bought at Goshen

Installed a set of JT Strongs on my 5er yesterday that I bought at Goshen. It was a project that took a little longer than planned. I had to trim the spare tire bracket and then trimmed the battery box because one of the arms didn't clear them. Then today I saw on the forum that the JT's instructions are wrong with the rear stabs. So much for a easy job.

That's why they put awnings on campers. Weezer says she got her drawer this morning and hers is installed along with reinforced stab legs.

Soaking up some Oklahoma sunshine the next morning, after finding this last night as we pulled in. The Route 66 gods were smiling, or smirking, I'm not sure yet. Click image for larger version

Turbs, no pics but a video from Lippert. I found they have an extension on the rear pad that I don't have and put in a 3x3 angle iron crossmember for the tubes to anchor. So much for instructions in the box. Turbs, do you agree with the rear stab set up?
