There's a sneaky way around this! We got a 4-5' section of 4x4" from a local crating company (free, but you could go to Lowes/Home Depot and buy one for less than $10)
Take a look at your front jacks and cut the 4x4 to be a few inches longer than the width of the jack cap. Presto! You have a 4" (well actually 3.5") extension block. (This will also work on the back stabelizer jack pads as well. Total added weight for all for blocks is maybe 5 pounds?
One small problem department: This method is great on concrete, not so good on gravel, and absolutely sucks on soft ground!
Solution: Buy these: Amazon.com: Camco 44541 RV Large Stabilizer Jack Pad - 2 pack: Automotive
or their smaller versions: Amazon.com: Camco 44595 RV Stabilizer Jack Pad - 4 pack: Automotive
We use these and the blocks all the time - even on concrete, effectivelly raising the jacks almost 5"
