Right message, wrong guy
[QUOTE=wbdavey;879259]Brew, it's not clear from your description that you're following the correct sequence. First run your jack up to take tension off the bars, then remove the "L" shaped clips and swing the bars away from the trailer tongue and towards the truck bumper. Then remove the pin clips and pins at the hitch head - your bars should slide right out.[/QUOTE
