I have one of these and use it when I fill the boat with fuel, so it does not burb up all over me.

I use it to get the filler neck/vent higher than the rest of the tank. It's helped tremendously and lets me get another couple gallons in the tank.

Hmmmmm interesting - What lift does that trailer aid give u?

What I'm trying to do is have something with me for my single axle trailer when I have a flat, because I cant get the trailer jacked up high enough with the axle on the ground.

If you put your jack under the axle, you should be good. The scissor jack that comes with most trucks would probably work. If you don't already have one, they are cheap and plentiful.

A Scissor jack isn't low enough to go under the axle on my single-axle trailer. I have the 5000 pound axle (six lugs), and it hangs much lower than the center of the wheel.

You definitely need something like the previous two linked ramps to get the wheel up high enough to get the jack under the axle.

Unfortunately I have to drive 1 hour each way on the freeway to get to the Columbia River in Central WA, so to protect my boat from several rock chips and dings, I had a rock guard custom built for when I travel. There are several of these on the market, including Rock Tamer which are pretty nice. I had this one built that has a guard extend all the way across to ensure nothing gets through. Works like a charm!
