Has anyone done something like this, or have some ideas? Thanks.
We made our four "jack pads" from 2x6x8. Cut (2) pieces, each 12 inches long, screw together to make (1) pad. We also spray painted each piece using a generic brand of flat black paint before screwing together.
We also use 2x8x8(cut each piece 24 inches long-make a 45 degree cut on one end of each piece and will sometimes screw (2) together to make (1) drive-on ramp if needed for the occasional off-level parking spot. Additionally, I put a piece of 1/2-3/4 inch piece of particle board/plywood cut to fit or any other durable material of your choosing and screw to the top of each ramp to minimize chances of ramps splitting and then paint also to provide some element protection for the wood. I use the "jack pads" a lot and the drive-on ramps not so much.
