Right,you will need a socket adaptor - it will look something like the extension for your regular ratchet. To that you will need to add a 3/4" socket to fit over the head on the jacks. You can probably pick up the socket adaptor at Home Depot or Lowes.

......and the most important thing LUBERICATE the Threads of the unit rods....If you bind one up with a batterydrill you will screw up the threads bad and have to replace the threaded rod- or worse will not be able to retract it.....geofkaye

If you lubricate as suggested above, make sure you use a dry lube such as silicon spray. WD-40 or other oily lubricants will attract sand and grit while driving down the road and create more problems.

I think that if you keep them clean and lubed well, you don't really need a drill. Mine have to drop about 2 feet, and they go down real fast. Plus, my rig didn't come with them, so when I added them, I made them removeable and they travel inside, out of the weather and road grime.

you can get the adapter at home depot, that's where I got mine. Just go to the tool section and ask. it should be where all the drill bits hang on the wall. Also I went to College with a Tom Grogan, you from WA State?
