Are we asking about it being crossways or the missing green strap.

I am going with teenager for both.

Someone has NO drop legs on the rear of their trailer.

Chocking the trailer wheels may have helped.

Hows the truck?

Trucks fine no contact when the rear wheels came back down, lol! But even with being in 1st gear and the parking brake set. I literally rode to that position on the trailer. Right after I cleared the ramps we were riding! Thank God it set down and that the truck wheels were slightly turned left or we were approaching the pond edge.

A slight decline caused this fun. Never again! Lesson thoroughly learned. Typically I'm on a flat section in the yard.

I wish I could blame it on my son but he's only 9. And I'm happy he didn't witness this fun. But I definitely learned something. Even. Slight decline can cause all this fun.

Been there and did it with a Samurai.

Put truck in 4x4 next time.

Block rear of trailer or install swing jacks.

This is one reason I switched to tilt decks
The other...I hate heavy ramps.

Well the good part is you started a thread and did not have to post it in the expensive lessons thread.

Great advice about the 4WD! All start carrying some chocks in the truck for the trailer. And researching some swing jacks too!

This is what I use.
Can just pop them off so they don't grow legs.
My other non tilt crane trailer has weld on units...all 4 corners...makes it real easy to change a tire when needed.

What's the brand? Also do you weld the pin on the trailer or is it somehow bolts to the trailer? Obviously still being able to remove the jack.

I got my first flat last week. Didn't realize until I pulled in the carport. Ran over a sliver of bone from some roadkill. I was able to pull it out and plug it.

No clue on brand.

There is a short slice of pipe that welds to frame.

Jack can be pinned vertical or horizontal....I just pull them so they don't rattle and eat paint off the trailer.
All brands "should" be the same universal "mount"...I think its 2" could be atouch bigger.

Tractor supply has them.......There are other types that bolt on but your trailer looks decked so they likely won't work....My saw mill traler has 8 of these just to keep it all level...flimsey trailer but light and has no deck so there is frame exposed to bolt these on. Harbor freight had these on sale for 21 bux or whatever....hard to beat.

Now that we are on this subject does anyone make a jack that fits in the stake pockets like the one "theduke" shows? I am not a welder and have not found one.

I spent 13 weeks near there in a little resort known as Paris Island.......
Thank you for your service!

I know it well. My dad was Air Force. (Jet engine mechanic). I enjoyed those privileges like the PX. I still have my now expired ID card to get on base. You can't forget the smell of the marsh.

Do you remember the park in Beaufort it was Called Pigeon Point Park. It's now been updated. But way back when I was in kindergarten through 2nd grade the park had an old F-86 and maybe one other aircraft gutted of course. But we use to crawl through the fuselage and play. Great memories!
