If you will be going out on the beach as I suspect these were, I would clean them up buy a new safety pin and roll with them, you have spent enough money on this project I am sure some savings would be a benefit. Btw, nothing wrong with using HJ with these or torklift, I had chains on my torklifts using the same ones.

Thanks, I am going to take a stab at cleaning/lubing them and see where that gets me. The jacks were rusty so after verifying that they all worked, I cleaned them up and painted them and then lubed the gears. They look like new now!

Such a statement is worthless without sending a contribution to fellow member.
New ties are >>> $300, where the picture doesn't show any mechanical problems with old ones.

He asked for our opinion.
I gave him mine.
I said "I'd buy new ones".

I didn't tell him too.

Your opinion is even more worthless than mine.

Torklift does make a basic spring load kit for the front tie downs for less that $100..Not a bad option in my opinion for those of us that don't want to spend the big money on this downs..That back is easy to take care of and basically just to keep it from bouncing..
