Can't believe the truck jack broke from this! The tongue has got to be less than the truck weight, cheap!

I was surprised and shocked as well.
It's like they put the Jack in there just to say there's a jack in there, but don't intend for you to use it.

Pretty sure the Husky will surprise you. Quiet, and the ball screw drive is what really caught my eye plus you can operate manually w/o removing head. But haven't even needed that yet.

Truck Jack?

I can't believe that Toyota would put a cheap jack in their truck. I have used mine to lift my truck, lift the Airstream to change a tire, lift a U-Haul trailer and even used it to pull a post out of the ground. Everything on my Tundra is sturdy, including the jack.

What upsets me more is that Airstream is putting a crummy jack on their new trailers. Unacceptable.

The jack in my 2007 Tundra is pretty bad.
To have the metal break out where the crank inserts is pretty bad.
Why would a jack be made of a brittle cast metal?
I just don't trust it.

When I ordered the Husky 82022 I was concerned about the clearance between the jack head and the tank cover. When I removed the Baker jack I noticed Airstream had installed one star washer on the front hole which angled the jack head back slightly closer to the tank cover. So I installed two star washers on the back holes angling the Husky jack slightly forward. The clearance is good now. The Husky silver color goes great with the aluminum.

It seems to me that the original tongue jack went belly up due to the OP trying to raise the trailer and truck off the ground to put boards under the rear tires of the truck. I don't believe tongue jacks are made for this kind of weight.

It wasn't the jack's fault I tried to lift more than 3,500# with no wheel chocks on place.
The weight of the trailer rolled back against it and bent the jack post.
I am paying $339 stupid tax on that one.
I ordered the same jack to keep the original like new appearance of my trailer.
I could have ordered a black Atwood I guess. That is what Airstream is using now.
