Default Jacks for removing a sled deck?

Probably a dumb question, but can anyone recommend a brand of high-lift slide-in camper jacks that I could use for removing a sled deck?

I looked and the highest one I could find only had a 57" lift height, I figure I need more than that for the deck frame to clear my wheel wells.

Thought I'd post up to see what everyone does to install/remove their deck when you don't have access to a hoist, skid steer, forklift, or like 3 or 4 friends.

What I did was buy 2 harbor freight hoists, and bolted to the rafters to lift the deck off. Works great and the hoists are pretty cheap. Check em out. If you have a shop or garage with some height

When I ran a deck, I started with regular camper jacks, but as you said - I went to a fork truck. LOL!

I switched to a flatbed soon after tho....

Is your deck frame up front wider than your wheel wells?
You could easily make some stilts to put on the bottom of regular height jacks.

Go under the trailer and jack unsecured decking up with a bottle jack?

I pick up 1000 lb grates with a long bar lever, wood blocks as a fulcrum. Then a flat shovel to keep it out of the grove to slide off. Could a eye bolt be fastened onto the old wood and link it to a bar using a fulcrum (block of wood) to make leverage?
