Jayco 165 lift - Torflex#10 axle

Wanted to get a bit more clearance under my Jayco 165. Decided to use the Dexter lift kit, even though it has 2 sets of spacer for 2 axles and I only needed one set. I liked the fact that it was made by the axle mfg and like the design better than some of the non OEM tube spacers I have seen. (I am putting the second set of spacers for sale in the classifieds)

The only problem with the install is that Jayco runs the grey water drain under the axle so I had to jog that down and back up. End result is that the grey water drain is no higher than it originally was, but everything else is up 2 1/2". This also gives me enough clearance to go to 14" wheels and tires when it is time to replace the current tires. I am happy with the results. The hardest part was breaking loose the bolts and re-torquing them after installing the spacers.

Good job.
Thinking if I should do this to mine, hmmm
The 14" wheels would be nice too :-)
Thanks for sharing,
Doug

Looks nice I don't think that little jog in the pipe will be a problem.

Great job, I wish the 19H had the same axel mounting setup that you had, would have made my job a lot easier. The 19h axel is mted to the outside of the frame instead of under. Larry

Looks good but you will have a problem with that jog. Is it grey water only? if so main issue is it will freeze and break as it is what we plumbers call "trapped" Water will not drain out of the trapped portion of the pipe. If it is black water it is worse in that you have solids (family friendly term for well you know) that will settle out as it sits there and will slowly plug the pipe.
On a drain pipe, once it starts going down (grading) it can never go up again (back grading) That kinda thing in buildings makes guys like me lots of money.

I think thats the front grey tank. How about a drain screw thingie at the bottom of the jog? Im not seeing many options here.

Jayco 165 lift - Torflex#10 axle

Get it as empty as you can and dump a few gallons of antifreeze in for the winter?

NICE! Yeah how much was that and where did you get it? Edit: Part number?

How long did it take you to install them?

I am thinking about 14" wheels as well.
