I suppose it all depends on the trailer tongue and the length of your stinger, but on my '07 Chevy Silverado, with an off the shelf Reese stinger, I have no issues with tailgate interference on the Little Joe. Unless your current A-frame mounted jack is underneath the open tailgate, there should be no problem with the Ultimate Jack. If you are currently using a side mounted swing jack, just measure from the center of the A-Frame jack mount hole to the edge of your lowered tailgate to see if you will have enough clearance. I can see that on some trailers you may have to rotate or flip up the crank handle to lower the tailgate, but that would only be when you are hitched. I can't see hitching or unhitching with the tailgate down, as the tailgate would interfere with that process.

Using the Jack-E-Up would be redundant with the Ultimate Jack. It's your choice, but with the Ultimate Jack, there is one less item to stow, nor would the Jack-E-Up give me the leveling flexibility I have needed on some very sloped camp sites.

My 2 cents.

I remove the jack so the rear door on my Rav4 will open enough for my dog to get in or out. I haven't towed since installing the Ultimate Jack, so it might open with it completely lowered. Then I worry about driving off without remembering to raise it again (getting old and forgetful).

I can sympathize with that last comment, Doug.

Yeah, the Rav4 is a bit different. Gordon2 and Gilles had me thinking in terms of a pickup truck tailgate. It may be worse if you have an older Rav4 with the continental kit.............Now that's definitely showing my age!

This subject is certainly going to throw a light, worth knowing which jack would be the best adapted to each its harness...
That allows us to visualize better our assembly before making a decision of purchase...

Have a good day all,
