No...with a 2015 F-150 Blue Ox and a 19' Bambi??? But now I need to check out how much space I need and see about incorporating one of the sides, like rotating the jack. It is a pain to get stiff out of the rear of the bed when the trailer is hooked up.

In my case, I'd guess that another 2" would (barely) let the tailgate clear the power jack motor housing.


That's one thing to consider on the Airsafe, If I recall it extends the ball something like 10 inches.

About an inch to spare with our F150 aligned straight with trailer. Depends on the truck and hitch.
