3 Annoying Things About Your Jack That No One Talks About- And How To Fix Them With The Dropleg Insert

“I just love cranking my trailer jack all the way down to unhitch and all the way back up to tow!”

Said no one, ever. JF1005HZ

Let’s be honest. Turning that Jack a hundred times every time you need to hitch or unhitch is not exactly fun. It’s one of the biggest nuisances of towing a trailer. That’s why Redneck Trailer Supplies came up with the perfect product to take the frustration out of the job. It is called the Dropleg Insert and it’s designed to fit inside the inner tube of an A-frame jack.

Here are 3 annoying problems that your jack may be causing that the Dropleg Insert works to alleviate.

1. Wasted Time

There’s no denying it: Cranking the jack can be downright time consuming. And the more you use your trailer, the more time you will see slip away into the thousands of turns of minuscule movements. The Dropleg Insert allows you to quickly set the Jack at the correct height and move on to the things that matter.

2. Back Pain

Did you know that back pain is the leading cause of disability in the United States? Most people experience some form of back pain throughout their adult life. It’s pretty common for me to hear about those dealing with trailers to feel back pain when cranking the jack on a trailer. If cranking the jack isn’t the cause of your pain, it can defiantly be the culprit of that existing pain flaring up again. With the insert, you can avoid an uncomfortable position with uncomfortable movements. It’s much easier on your back and might help you to not feel quite as old they say you are.

3. Blocks of Wood

How many of you have blocks of wood hitching a ride -pun intended- in your truck bed or trailer? You never know what terrain or slope you might have to park your trailer on, especially those of you working in construction or towing a camping RV. Blocks of wood have become a standard towing accessory (there’s a sales idea) until now! The Dropleg insert provides an extra 8 inches of lift so you can ditch those blocks of wood. Use them for something else or burn them in your campfire. There is much less hassle with this new accessory.

The insert is so easy to install and it fits most 2K-5K A-Frame Jacks. We now have these available in our store for just $15.95. Do us a favor- next time you’re cranking that jack, time yourself and see how long it takes! We’re wondering what the average time is. Let us know by commenting on our Facebook.

A Labor of Love: Part 6

Last month you got to see the beautiful paint job on the Mustang. This month we are revealing the incredible transformation of the interior. If you want to follow this story, make sure you catch up on the first 5 parts. Each one includes a lot of pictures to illustrate every step of the restoration.

Mustang Restoration Part 6: Interiorunnamed (8)

Dave wanted to keep as many original parts as possible. He kept the old seats but did quite a bit of work to them. The original car only had lap seat belts in the front with no seat belts in the back. The front seats also had no head support. Because of the years of sitting in storage, the interior had a tremendous need for a face lift.

After adding new padding, side support, higher backs and headrests to the front bucket seats, Dave went on to re-upholster all the seats.

There was an obvious safety issue with the original front seat belts and lack of seat belts in the back. Dave looks forward to taking his grand kids for rides when they come to visit so, of course, safety is important. (No complaints here!) He installed 3 point seat belts on all the seats making them much safer (and legal.)

He went on to the rest of the interior and restored the original factory center console. He added a stereo from Custom Audio Sound to jazz it up. The stereo looks like an old fashioned radio but has more modern electronics.

He installed a new gauges set from a Michigan company called Classic Instruments. Then a one-piece molded headliner from Mustangs to Fear.

Because of the black interior and the plans of summer cruisin’, Dave opted to install an air conditioning unit that he purchased from Classic Auto Air. He also got a custom steering wheel that you can see a little of in the above picture. The steering wheel and new floor mats add a lot to the interior!

He contacted our trailer light supplier, TecNiq to get some LED lights for the interior. He upgraded to a modern wiring harness from American Autowire to make everything run properly. The result is pretty awesome! I guarantee you will want to take this car for a spin when you see the finished product!

We are only two months away from revealing the fully restored Mustang! Next month we will show you Part 7: Assembly. In May, we will bring you the final touches and the test drive! Dave is so excited to have this project finished and to put the car to use.

This post is full of resources for anyone else that is working on a car or looking for upgrades. Would you please share this post on your Facebook so that your friends can see Dave’s project and use these resources? Thank you and thanks for reading!

Funny Thing About Rental Trailers

Can I be honest with you about something? I love my job, I have a pretty sweet gig. I stay home with my kids and when they go to bed I pour myself a glass of wine and pull out my computer. If you told me 2 years ago that I would be writing a blog about trailers and ENJOYING it, I probably would have laughed at you. But I do enjoy it! I have learned so much about trailers and I enjoy passing my knowledge along to others. I enjoy being a part of our family business and seeing the benefits of my work.


Back to the “being honest” part.

Sometimes, as fascinating as trailers are, sometimes I just have to change things up a bit to keep myself entertained. Which is why I made this video about our rental trailers last week. I posted it earlier this week and it’s gotten a pretty good reaction. Even if you couldn’t care less about trailers, I promise you will enjoy this video.

We understand that plenty of our customers really don’t have the need to purchase a trailer. But many have the need for a rental trailer. That’s why we have worked to create a great selection of trailers to rent for whatever the job is. Our rates are very reasonable and we are a joy to work with! You can even read our Google reviews  to see what our previous customers have said about us. (Or you can head over there and give us a review yourself.) Our Facebook Page also has quite a few reviews.

Back to the rental trailers. I’m going to keep it brief here because we have all the information you need on our rental trailer page. We have 8 trailers to choose from that range from $30-$79 a day. We also have some additional items available to rent such as ball mounts, balls and pins and motorcycle straps.

So this spring if you find yourself in need of a rental trailer for your home projects, weekend gig or to give grandma a ride, remember us and our low prices on trailers. We are here to help and happy to answer any questions.

Please pass this along! You never know what friends could benefit from knowing where to find a great rental trailer. Thank you for reading and I hope we can work together soon!
