Default New stabilizer jacks for the 139

It was really nice weather here today (69 and sunny) so I thought I'd check the fit on the new jacks. The stabilizers that came with the little T139 are OK but not exactly heavy duty. We had picked up a pair of BAL 24002D jacks.
I test fit the new jack...I'll need to relocate the mounting pad to the front about 2 inches to center the larger top pad on the jacks but that'll be no big deal. In the photos you can see the old on the far side compared to the BAL on this side.
2nd photo:
I'm gonna move the old stabilizers to the front (there were none on the front) and use them there. That'll save having to fumble with the flimsy triangular screw jacks I was using.....

Now I need another pretty day....come on spring time!!!

Did you weld the mounting pads? Or are they bolted on? I have been wishing for bigger jacks for my X-139 -- it is lifted, so our existing jacks don't even reach the ground. I put heavy wooden tripods under the jacks to make up the difference.

My intention is to bolt them in place after relocating them a little forward on the old mounts. The old mounts are not exactly under the frame/cross member junction and that seems to be a better spot. The pads on top of the BAL's are huge! The little rig will place very little stress on them.
The existing jacks are indeed short. Since up-sizing our axle we have had to carry extra blocks even tho' it only added 2.5 to 3 inches in height.

Finally got some time at home and good weather. Bolted on some enlarged mounting pads and then bolted the new jacks to them.


Much better.....
