Steadyfast system has arrived!

Well, the FedEx guy dropped off my Steadyfast system today. I will hopefully be doing the install this weekend, and then trying it out the next!

For those of you who have installed this system, do you have any tips/tricks?

I'll give a full report once it's all hooked up and operational.

Waiting to see the results. Poor mans solution, i.e. additional jack stands in front of the wheels did not work out. Underbelly wrap won't allow.

I actually installed a third set of jacks in front of the wheels a couple of weeks ago. I have the enclosed underbelly as well. They helped, but didn't take out as much shake as I wanted.

As far as mounting the third jacks, I just used the two outside self tapping bolts. The inside ones aren't really needed.

No pics yet... it's all still in the box. Check them out here though -

The same idea as the JT Strongarm setup, but a slightly different design. Easier to install, and easier to set-up/tear-down with each use.

Thanks, that is what I thought it was.

Did the install this afternoon. Took about three hours by myself. The first 1/4 of it took about an hour and a half, but after that I knew what I was doing and was able to finish up pretty quickly. I won't know exactly how it works until next weekend when we go camping, but I can tell you that all of the parts are very high quality. All of the nuts and bolts were labeled as to where they went, which made installation very easy. I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Take some pics of the system once you are set-up at the campground.
