I just bought a 3500 lb. Barker power jack. It has a 2 year warranty on it.

I should have it tomorrow, can't wait to get it installed!

Have not heard that particular brand mentioned here if I recall correctly. Most seem to have Barker and Attwoods.

I have an atwood. It works great. Has enough power to lift back end of truck up to put on my WDH bars.

Have an Atwood and it works great, but the best thing I can still open my tailgate when hitched. Fiends with other setups can't open their tailgates when hitched. Makes a difference when hauling our dogs in their crates back there.

Have never heard of that brand. I've had an Atwood on all my previous TTs, and one on my car hauling trailer. In around 15 years, not one problem with any of the jacks. Not saying that RAM is not as good, but I like to stick with brands known to be good, regardless of good $$ deals. JMHO
