had any problems with the weight of the jack flexing the front of the box? I had flexing issues with my whip, ended up putting a 1/4" plate behind it to tighten it up.

but i'd think that those mounts would spread the load enough

no flexing of the box at all. i even have people sit on my toolbox and thing the jack is a footrest. the mounts have 4 bolts per side so it spreads the load nicely
