This is what I use it gets about 80% of the roc-n-rol out fut you will still have frame flex at the axels.

I had JT's installed last week at Q. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! Gave my king pin stabilizer away while I was there. One thing to remember when you buy for a 3400 is that the rear jacks are telescoping and not scissor. Makes a difference.....
Thanks Phil,You saved me alot of trouble I always thought those were scissor jacks not telescoping jacks. This forum is unbelievably informative,thanks again Phil.

I installed the JT's on our Big Sky before we left WI. It took me about 2 hours for the four front ones and an hour and a half for the rear. On ours there was not a cross beam on the back to mount the rear units on so I had to add a 2x3 box channel just behind the telescoping jacks all the instructions come with the JT's. here is a slide show of installed jacks. http://s212.photobucket.com/albums/c...t=48404260.pbw

The elephant feet were great, and very easy to install. Now I have everything JT's makes except the level. That is on my birthday list. We love the E feet, but when you order ask for a couple extra T-bolts as I have had two welds let go and they were very nice about sending me a couple extra. I have since had the snapped ones re-welded... Dave and Betsy

I installed the Steadyfast stabilizers while we were in Quartzsite. So far they have kept us very steady. We are now in Yuma and with todays high winds we felt very little movement. Big difference from just using the Bal chocks and a kingpin tripod. Now we just put the Bal chocks in lower the stabilizers and tighten them at 3 points and we are solid, no more fighting with the tripod.

I wonder why RV manufacturers don't just put Parking Brakes on the axles. It wouldn't be rocket science, parking brakes on cars have been around quite a while now. Oh well, couldn't sell all those expensive wheel chocks if they did.
