Heres one from sears 4 ton lifts 20". I just dont see why you need more than that when I can jack my BIG truck on 40s up with the harbor freight one....? I've used blocks before, but its just not safe IMHO

I use a 4x4 between the jack and the truck. That way it conforms to the part I'm using to lift the truck, and the truck still has the ability to roll.
