Putting 1973 stabilizer jacks on a 1960

I have 4 1973 stabilizer jacks from a scrapped Airstream. I want to put them on my 1960 Overlander. Has anybody done this? I found a thread a couple of years ago posted on how to do it, but now I cannot find it. The thread if I remember correctly said get a big magnet and run it on the underbelly to find a cross member to anchor the stabilizer into. I remember the thread reading you could not anchor them like they were on the 1973. Any advice would be appreciated.

Brian

Brian.

You don't need a magnet.

Simply look for the rivet line, that's between the main frame. It will go from one side of the trailer to the other side, but only between the main frame.

The "T" part mounts to the main frame and the bottom of the "T" mounts to a "cross member".

It's that easy.

But use at least # 10 screws.

How wide are the frame rails you will be attaching into? I would like to do the same thing to my trailer. Please post pics if you do it, I would love to see how it works out for you.

The axle mounting dimension is 57 7/8 inches, which is outside of frame to outside of frame.

I guess going from the mounting plates on the axle it shouldn't be too hard to find the correct spot to mount the stabilizers behind the rear wheels?
