On Bulldog electric trailer jack # BD500199 the screw (operated by the motor) travels 14 inches and the drop leg travels 8 inches for a total lift amount of 22 inches. When the jack is fully retracted it measures approximately 9-3/4 inches from the mounting surface to the bottom of the foot. When fully extended including the drop leg that measurement would be about 31-3/4 inches. You can use this data compared to the measurements of the truck to determine if 22 inches of total lift will be enough.

The electric A-Frame trailer jacks with the most travel are # EJ-3520-BBX for black or # EJ-3520-WBX. Each has 25-1/8 inches of lift and they are rated for 3,500 pounds. But the overall measurement from the mounting surface to the bottom of the foot when extended is 28-1/2 inches meaning the Bulldog jack would still lift it a little more.
