Axle Info?

2008 Jayco Jay Feather Sport 218. I know these are torsion axles and probably Dexter. Iíve seen photos where axles were bolted to frame and some raise their axles. I would like to be able to do that. This look like the plate is welded to the frame. Are these photos enough to help identify how these are mounted?

The axle carrier appears to only be bolted to the bracket that is welded to the frame. It should be fairly easy to have a fabrication shop make a 'lift kit' for your axles from some appropriately sized square and flat stock.

There are a couple of different threads here on JOF where owners have done this. A quick search should turn them up.

Kykev,

The following video may provide some insight on how the Dexter lift kit looks installed on the 'Torflex' axle model shown. The lift kit design may very depending on the RV manufacture's OEM axle mounting.

Thank for the replies and especially for the video Bob. I understand it now. Those first two photos kind of confused me because they look welded to the frame but they are not. Thanks again.
