I'm thinking it's the back that moves also.
Can you explain your system in more detail? Pictures?


I don't have pictures, but it works nicely.
1. 2 ea. 2X4's cut to about 4' to 5' Length. You can angle the ends if you want or use them with a straight cut.

2. About 1' 1/2 up put an eye hook on each board.

3. Put the top of the boards against the frame in the back. Generally there is a "U" shaped frame ridge going the length of your rig. Use that for the top support.

4. Hook a Ratchet strap to the eye hooks and ratchet it tight.
It will help considerable with the back end movement. I had to use them when we were in Arizona. Kind of rough terrain.

I got the idea from posts on this site. You could look back through the archives to find one with a Picture. Easy to make, Easy to use, Easy to store away. And cheap.

I hope this helps you.

Thanks Rick!

I will give it a try,

I cut 2/6 into 12" pieces, works great. Cheap.

Happy trails.
