Probably the one that came on the trailer? Are you having trouble with yours? Is there a problem with it? I think you need to flesh out your question a bit.

My Bambi Sport did not come with a Power Jack, just the standard manual crank. Looking to upgrade to a power jack.

I donít know if thereís a cult favorite in the Ď16 crowd but the one you see mentioned often here for the larger trailers, and that I love, is the Husky line. They are far quieter than what AS ships stock and are super reliable.

Nothing would be more clear to a Bambi 16RB owner. They do not come with power jacks.

Hello,
We have a 4000 lb single axle Safari. We use a Super Hi-Power 3500 made by Barker I believe.
I think a lot of folks like the Husky brand, 4500, 5000 lb, it could lift your whole trailer, lol and it comes in silver.

Like always there are a few existing threads on the subject. This place is awesome as a reference library. Have a question? Just ask.

I looked to see if this question has been asked, which it has, but could not find a response:

Can the head of the Husky be turned 90 degrees like the Barker to provide more clearance for the tailgate while hooked-up?

I had to do this to allow the tailgate on our Tundra to fully drop and would hate to loose this ability.

Thanks for any responses or comments.

I don't know about turning the head, but I remember seeing a post where someone had turned the whole jack to the angle they desired and drilled new bolt holes in the mounting collar to match the existing holes in the trailer mounting plate.

We had a 16 Sport, with the crank jack.

I liked it. Kinda wish we had a crank on the 19 we have now.

My apologies to AlnKaren, I did not know this. I learn something new every day. While my days are limited, the amount of stuff I don't know seems endless.
