I use a 8" by 10" piece of 1/2" plywood. Cheap, doesn't push into the ground.

Yes I remove it while traveling. Is great for setting up WD hitch. A lot less cranking!

jack block

While I use all yellow plastic blocks for the corner jacks, I must be old school when it comes to the front jack.
I have used an old creosoted block of wood, that is 10x10 by 14 inches. I know that sounds heavy, but it is surprisingly light. I toss it in the truck bed, when we pull off. It never soaks up water or begun to deteriorate, and I have had is sitting in snow and mud for almost 15 years.
On a particularly slanted area, I can put yellow blocks on top of the big block, and keep stacking.
BTW, why would anyone care how far to extend the jack, when you can stack up to it? If nothing else, get some more yellow blocks.

I have the cone style and have never had an issue. Very stable and the height eliminates a lot of cranking. My TT is around 4000#.

I've made these, wanted something light, easy to carry several, so size can be what ever you want. Test pieces were made of osb, switched to plywood. 2" foam between 1/2" plywood, 3" sleeve of plastic schedule 40 in center and glued together. Click image for larger version

I mentioned I used a piece of 1/2" plywood. I forgot to mention I installed one of these:
The Ultimate Jack | A-Frame Trailer Jack at its FInest!
It allows me to let the jack down and open the tail gate of the pickup without it banging into the top of the jack. Also, when setting up camp, it takes only a few turns of the jack to get the trailer off the hitch.
