Ok, so i was in harbor freight and saw trailer jacks and thought. What if you broke down in the mud or on the road or in the trail. But you had a jack the attaches with 4pins and its a quick crank to jack it up and fix it. Think it would work? I am going to make a offroad trailer so it would be a good idea for me because i could just put it in the trailer and ride around with it

I think thats a great idea you would always be able to jack it up no matter where you were because I absolutely hate working with no ground clearance that would make it easier

That's a really good idea, jacks would be useful.
I guess a hydraulic system and stabilizer legs like a backhoe could be another route to explore, modified hydraulic bottle jack may???
