Just sharing some work in progress:  I am currently replacing the poorly constructed and inneffective OEM stabilizer jacks with (4) Husky 6500 lb versions.  To make the mounting effective I am working on adding fabrications to the underbody to strengthen the attachments.

Update:  For those of you that are interested, I just completed install of Husky 6500 lb screw jacks.   See picture of welded fabrications attached to screw jacks just prior to chassis welding.  Jacks are orientated +/-45 deg to chassis frame longitudinals and height adjusting nuts are all accessible from LH or RH bodysides.
Very happy with results-now very stable to twisting action that is likely with a single axle trailer and I definitely will use them for modest levelling purposes.
