well that sounds like they should work do you have a part number for them or what they are called exactly so i can look into them...Yhanks


I used the #23228 28" model but they make one step longer than that...

stomperxj How big are your tires on that as I'm looking at 33s

I am running 31's in a spring over axle configuration. Frame height is approx 23" empty and I can lift the tires off the ground pretty close to 6". Your tires would effectively put your frame 1" taller than that (30.7" tire vs 32.7" tire... 2" height dif divided by 2) so the longest BAL jacks they sell would surely work I would think... and you could always mount them lower on the frame by an inch since they are so low profile when in the travel position...

I like that motorized unit that they have for them just thinking that it might be good for other things as well like possibly a slide out or something but I might go with a airbag on my suspension as well still debating my friend has lots of stuff at his place so we are going to start and pick through some of the treasures...Thanks again for the info
