I actually don't disagree- I'm just thinking their setup should be easier... It's one thing to setup vs. two and no cranking (just tighten the ratchet strap).

I already have JT's knockoffs (UltraFab Eliminators).

We'll see. Worst case, I sell 'em and get real stab jacks.

I prefer squatting down and using the electric drill to run the jack down on each side to crawling under the trailer. Old age and tender knees have struck again.

I also have a set of home made type Strong Arm bars that I installed on the rear jacks to stop the side 2 side motion of the trl. Cost me about $50 of material I got at the local Home Depot store. So between the home made stong arm bars, scissor jacks on the frame between the axles, and the wheel locks the trl sets dead still when walking around in it.
