Andy, Does that mean that you have seen some of the 34 footers that actually were not welded properly? I do know that several International WBCCI Presidents had late model 34's that had frame separation caused by buckling of this plate and bending the frame. They had been using Equalizer hitches with the big bars and put on a lot of miles. They had to have the Elephant ears fix done to their units. Do you think that possibly jacking on this plate could have caused their problems? If the ground under the jack is not perfectly level, I could see where a slight side load could bend the plate.

When I took delivery of my 2012 International 23FB, the technician showed me a couple of small square plates all the way back near the rear of the trailer (one on each side) and told me those were the only approved jacking points, and that the plates were attached there to mark the location of the frame above. It doesn't sound like anyone here has recommended using a jacking point back near the rear. Anyone know what the tech was talking about?

Blurb,

I too almost punched a hole in the belly pan using the "marked" jacking points.

Be safe, use the axle mount plates.
