Jack Pads what is everyone using

I am tired of carrying around wood blocks and bricks to support my jacks, so wondering what everyone uses, pictures would be helpful

I use the orange lego blocks -- BUT they are on top of a treated 2x8 square. I think the 2x8 helps distribute the weight on the ground better. It looks like you're pretty far extended by your pic, don't know what else. You're going to have to carry someting.

Have carried 10 of the yellow plastic blocks for years and very seldom have used them. I finally covered the top and bottom with alum tread plate and bolted them to the bottom of the jack pads. I extend my jacks as far as needed without additional blocks to get the jack legs as close to vertical as possible. Also have a set of electric jacks in front of the axle and homemade JT Strongarms.

I bought a set of the recycled tire rubber ones. More expensive than the yellow bricks, but I have been happy with them so far, seems to work much better on gravel of various sizes than the wood blocks or yellow plastic ones did.

We use the plastic leveling block as well. They are great for leveling our TT as well as putting under the jacks.

I use 2x6 (1 1/2 inch high) lumber cut about 10 inches long. I have about 8 of these that I carry. They are strong and light. I also carry two 4x4 ( 3 1/2 inch high) by 10 inch to give me any added height on any one or two legs. These were scraps so they don't cost anything.
