We also have the Snap Pads on our jacks and really like them.

We also went to Tractor Supply and bought a stall mat for about $35.00 and cut it into 24 12" squares. When the trailer is on a weird slope we use these to compensate for being to far out of level. I don't like my trailer tires being off the ground.

Ilike using composite decking. One eight foot piece makes plenty of blocks. They are water proof and wipe of nicely

Just purchased a set of these. Very heavy duty pads. I liked the big 16" footprint.
Thanks so much for this link! Off topic, but I've been looking for a good surge protector, and this company is only about 45 minutes from my house. I'm all about supporting local businesses when possible, plus I love the fact that they come with a lifetime warranty.

Wish they had a Snap Pad design for the rectangular feet... I'd be $50 poorer...

But it is expensive and very heavy. I have some but I leave them home after covering the Linx blocks.

The issue of what if will always play on everyones mind, but as for the need for jack pads will rage on i would suggest to use some and here is a good starting point to shop for them (Hosspad Jack and Leveling Pads - Large, 4-Pack - Bsrm H LARGE - Chocks & Levelers - Camping World)
As for wood i do not recommend then as they rot and break at the worst time, so look at the pads i posted above and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps and Happy Camping
