Longer stabilizer jacks needed

Hello, I installed a lift kit on my 22FB Sport. Are there longer stabilizer jacks available? The original jacks have a 19” arm. Hoping there are 23-25” jacks that will fit the same bolt pattern (two bolts 3” apart and a third bolt 16” OC from those. I found 25” jacks online but with different bolt pattern.

This would allow me to get rid of a set of leveling blocks I’ve been using and free up some valuable tool storage space

Thank you,
Geza

I'll admit, for my stabilizers, I just made up some blocks (got a 2x10, cut it into squares, then glued into pairs). But, I have a rear bumper to store them in.... yeah, if I didn't have the bumper storage, that'd be a pain to try to find a place to store them. I'm interested in seeing if there are any others out there suitable....

I don't know if you will find similar BAL jacks with a longer arm, but if you decide to go with something else, I would be interested in buying your old ones for my old TradeWind. Are they manual?

After I installed my lift kit I installed snap pads. They took up the slack. Expensive, but now that I have them I really like them. Tongue jack pad, too!

Ooo! I like those. I might still keep the ones I made, but it'd be great to have those. Appreciate the suggestion!

Ah... drat. I mean, they're nice, but... looking at them, they only add one inch, as opposed to the needed 3". I mean, they'd help, but, would still need to use something in addition to....

Thanks for the replies all, I’ll keep looking, 25” arm would still remain totally underneath. Pa Bambi, I’ll keep you in mind should I remove the manual stock ones.

If I want longer stabilizers for my 27' FC, I just use my "lego" blocks under the "short" stabilizers.

We also use a stack of lego blocks when the terrain causes a stabilizer jack to come up short.

Thank you, I need 4 independent jacks; often camping on uneven ground and currently using the lego blocks. One of those small mods to save a couple minutes setup/takedown each time as well as free up storage space
