Looking for spacers for dually jacks. Have Jacks for regular width truck.Bought dually cannot not clear fenders need more width. Has anyone made their own (looks like 4" or 6" cube)Having hard time finding spacers around South Bend In. One TC owner said he made spacers out of 6"+6" piece of hardwood. Think I will pass on that.
Any suggestions?


Thanks,

You should be able to find a supplier on line. A simple extension can be made from flat steel plate. Figure the lenth and width drill holes and bolt on. My Jacks are Happy Jacks and have the swinging extension for the dually. If you are not set to work metal a custom weld shop should be able to make you a set of brackets.

If you have Atwood jacks, here's what the factory swing out brackets look like:

That's what's on my camper so my dually can fit under the camper. Once loaded, I can swing the brackets in so that they don't stick out going down the road.

Arlo
Have you considered that adding 12" to the width of camper will probably put you over the legal width?
