No, I fixed them. And deleted several posts about sideways pics and edited your post that said "The heck with it." Lots goes on in the background sometimes....

Your curb and driveway slope look quite moderate to me. I don't think there will be any clearance issues for you.

When I got my Escape in 2014, there was no bottom plate on the jack post, it was just a hollow tube, I don't know if that has changed. You will get a 2" circle mark on the wood block you put underneath it. One of my neighbours had a spare jack plate and gave it to me. I have not checked the Escape accessory page recently, they used to offer a jack wheel.

Enjoy your new Escape!

Edit: I went over to the Escape web site, and see that the photo on the E19 page shows an electric jack with what looks like a square jack plate. I don't see electric jack as feature, it might be an option. Check your build sheet to see if power jack was an option.

That little dip in the curb is troublesome, I know that from backing in boats. I donít have a power jack and it is an option only. Iíll put one on myself eventually. I still would like to know the dimensions of the a Jack Plate. If itís just a post, Iíd like to know that too.

I don't know if this would make any difference to curb height issues, but I pull in to the sidewalk on the wrong side of the road, and have a close to 90 degree turn to get into the driveway. I'm on an angle when the hitch is going over the curb. That might minimize the effect going up the curb. I think you will have to give it a try. You could lay a 2x4 down at the curb if the rise causes any problems if you are backing straight in.

Yes sir, Iíve thought of both those as well. Trial and error.

The base plate is 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" and it's easily removable by pulling the pin.

We have a steep-ish driveway, and donít have any issues scraping. Iíve attached a couple photos that should help you see. I think ours looks a little steeper than yours. Not saying you just whip in, but it works. Last time I backed in Jeff said my front trailer wheels werenít actually on the ground for a couple feet ( not a couple feet high off the ground). I didnít notice. The next 15-20 feet of drive is a bit steeper than the first 8.
