M416 Tongue Jack ideas using a Hi-Lift
Ok I need a fairly quick fix, the landing leg is not going to be used because it's to short with the lift and matching tires (while I could extend the landing leg it still will not lift the tongue). The tongue will be heavy with a full size spare and two batteries. I've used a Hi-Lift in the yard on a theoretical basis and it will work. What I need to know is how to mound it to the trailer to be used as a landing leg and a trailer tongue jack, and ALSO be removed while connected to the vehicle to change a tire if necessary.
I was thinking about using a U-bolt, drilling a new hole and at least making it removable if I really needed it, I also thought a piece of square tube with a notch cut in it like on a TJM bumper so the Hi-Lift foot passes through but couldn't come up with a rattle free mount idea on paper.
I warned you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you knew it all, didnít you? Oh, itís just a harmless little bunny, isnít it? Well, itís always the same. I always tell them
