Installing BigFoot levelers

I plan on buying and installing BigFoot levelers on my 2019 Freedom Elite 30FE, has anyone else done a self-install and if so did you have to drill the bolt holes or where they already there?

Yes people have done self-installs and it is discussed at length in previous Big Foot threads.

I also have a Freedom Elite 30FE (2018) and Iím weighing the idea of installing the Bigfoot levelers myself vs taking it to the factory in Michigan.
From what I understand, the leveler supports are intended to be welded to the frame. There is, however, a separate kit that provides brackets that can be bolted on. Iíve heard the the front bracketry allows picking up existing holes but the rear brackets require drilling.
I recently installed a rear Roadmaster sway bar that required drilling holes.
From this experience, Iím leaning towards a factory installation.

If you do it yourself make sure to post the steps. We have a 2017 30fe and this is an upgrade that we have considered

I installed Bigfoot levelers on my 24FE. No drilling required
