On a Flagstaff or Rockwood, it would be an easy install on the 2x4 steel tube frame running across the trailer.

I think moving them that much inboard you would lose stability?
I'm inline with the tires forward to aft.

The stability is great on the rear jacks I modified and mounted to the 2x4 and the pads are just inside the tires. Only problem I see with the individual jacks is the possibility of racking the frame. The modified stab jacks won't/can't do that.

I can see your concern Old Coot. It looks like you have torsion axles with a subframe. I think you probably already have the ideal setup for that design.
I have a full I beam to play with.

I wonder how one of these on each corner would work?

The first question that popped into my mind: Would drilling into/through the frame cause voiding of the warranty on the frame? I used to work for a company that sold truck bodies and we could not drill into/through the frame of these trucks for any reason, everything had to be welded on. On the Home Depot jack: Note that these are advertised as "car jacks" with a 2000# capacity each, a lifting height of 14", and are approximately 5" high closed up. BUT--I'm thinking that they would work with some light mods to them. My ground clearance is such that I would have to use blocks under the HD jacks but that would not be a problem. Hmmm, I may just go purchase one to do some serious "noggin grinding".

Thurman, you're way past on warranty anyways. 1-2 years is all most will warranty. Drill away!

How would you attach to the frame?

"05CrewDually": Not sure what you mean as to the warranty. My TT is only 8 months old. I did go to my local HD store with the printed info on this jack. They could not pull it up in the HD store system.
