Anderson Jack blocks (Orange buckets)

For those of you using these on their fifth wheels, do they make a big difference? I just ordered 6 for my new fifth wheel. Just found out the rear 4 stabilizers only had roughly 7-7.5 inches from the ground, not enough room for these jack blocks. I looked above the stabilizers and can confirm I have plenty of room to raise the rear stabilizers 2 holes. However, is it worth the time to do this or just stick with the Lego blocks pads that I have plenty of?

We just purchased a new Sierra. Still waiting to take delivery tho. I also have ordered the “Orange buckets” but will need to move the 4 rear jacks up. I think it’s a good idea to allow more ground clearance. The buckets will make the cylinders extend less and should make the whole set up more stable. Just my thoughts.curious to others opinions / experiences.

I had originally planned on doing that but as is my 4 rear stabilizers are pretty low. Add the lego blocks from my travel trailer days, seems to work fine. I use the 'buckets' for the front. I will be purchasing the Valterra stabilizer to use under the hitch bar or rear bumper and see if it removes more wiggling.
