It kinda looks like you have your head under the trailer supported by the hydralic tube jack, without a jack stand. Must be an optical illusion.

No it is not an optical illusion, we installed 5000# scissor jacks last year and they are down in the pics. Not to mention the bottle jacks are 12 ton or better. Head not crushed, we will live for another day of beer and projects.

Ok, looks like fun! Uh.... which type of axle did you go with, and is it a 22 degree down or more?

Which type of beer makes the install go "faster."
Thanks!
Marc

Hey,

Forget the axles, what an adorable little girl.

Good luck with your new axles.

I'd feel a lot better if I could see some jackstands in the pics. Maybe they are out of sight?
