I ran across this today while just browsing a different forum. Kinda an interesting idea, although obviously targeted more towards a racing application than to an overlanding one. Plus pretty expensive for what it is.
It does make me wonder if a less expensive electric trailer jack could be modified and adapted in a similar way though...

Kind of neat. Wonder what mechanism they're using on the inside? A 3000lb linear actuator with a 12 inch stroke will set you back about $500. A high torque motor and some gearing would be cheaper. Either option is going to eat that drill battery alive. Skip the drill battery, hack on an Anderson connector and power it off the vehicle.

With a linear actuator you could also pull, creating an electric version of high lift jack winching...
