    I was thinking of switching to scissor jacks on the back end of my pup. The slope of my driveway causes my swing downs to hit sometimes when I'm backing it in. Are the scissor jacks lower profile?

    Pull the jack out from your tow vehicle.. If it is a scissor jack (most are these days) hold it up to the swing down stab and compare the two.. It's not an exact way but it will give you an idea..

    Unfortunately I understand what Ryan Raymond is talking about. There are many times that my swing down jacks are not able to swing down into position to even have the pad touch the ground due to the elevation I have to dig a hole. I would love to remove my swing down jacks and replace them with the scissor ones. Unfortunately mine are welded on and I am not that mechanically inclined nor do I have the tools. Hoping my son can take a look this spring and remove them. Mine are rusting through and close to failing.

    Happy camping!
    :D
