Keeps the Backside from dragging the bumper if you ever go thru a large dip in the road or up a steep incline.

And the first time you hit them, they fold up like a joke. The first time out with my Apex, I turned into a grocery store with a ramped up entrance and I tried to cut the angle all I could, and it still touched down. Yep, folded the triangle skid back towards the bumper. It really offered no help. I have a plan to cut them off and replace them with some 1/4" wall steel that I will weld on. I'll make it so that I can literally drag the trailer home on them if I so desire.

Never hit the ones on our 2018 Cherokee, but the thing sits so high, I'd have to drive into a ditch for them to ever touch ground. Did bottom our 2007 Jayco...26' and they actually held up pretty well.

Before I did that, I would put wheels back there. That way, if you hit something, itíll roll and not drag.

Got it, now I remember I had a 37í 5th wheel and it had big caster wheels in case of bottoming out. Thanks all.
