I cut off about 1 1/2 inches and that was more than needed. I would start at half an inch and see if you can get it in between your tires then cut off another half inch. I used a reciprocating saw with a blade for metal and it zipped right through the plastic.

Thanks now I feel better I also cut about 1 1/2 still fits a little tight but I am going to try it to see if its enough. I wish I didn't have to cut them.

I think we'll be trying them. I'll probably have to cut some off also. Thanks for the information and reviews!

Here's a picture of my Andersen's.... and you can see how much of the left one I had to cut off. One thing I am going to do soon is bevel the edge on the one leveler. I don't think I cut off 1 1/2", it was probably close to 1" though. It was a tight fit and beveling will make it slide into place a little easier.

Has anyone used this system that can tell me how they work?
Anderson Leveler is da BOMB - you need 2 though so even on Amazon that is $89 - a bit more than Lego blocks or wood but this is our next Mod!

Wow, that Andersen leveler is awesome. I bought one set of blocks and they were over $30, so $50 for one of those really isn't too bad.

When I first saw them in YouTube I couldn't figure out why I had never heard of them. I was worried they were a hoax but bought them anyway

Wife and I like them a lot. Just move forward or back an inch or so to adjust level instead of adding blocks

Super simple and they are wheel chocks to
