I thought about that. I would have to either find a way to mount in the center of the toungue where the current jack is or use two, one on each side so the weight is distributed equally when its parked. I have weight distibution bars that may get in the way. Your right, it does sound scary loading and unloading, that tailgate is pretty high! I was planing on using a tri-fold ramp so I could have both feet down and I'm still not sure the bike wont bottom out as I cross over the tailgate. I was hoping someone may have experience with this.
