it lifts 9", but remember the higher you go the more tilt you put on the wheel, I'd guesstimate 6" is workable. I carry a shovel and sometimes I "dig" out the high side to keep the inequality within the 4" limit of the blocks. Have you considered that option?
Jim, are you talking about the plastic levelers when you say, "blocks"? They are 3" tall. I would probably put a 2x4 across underneath the back of a BAL leveler to make up for some of the angle. The site I'm currently camped in that was a problem with the plastic ramps is at about 5 inches of required lift. The BAL Levelers are great but really heavy and I don't want to re-spend for the lighter aluminum version.

Yes the orange blocks. Do not know if they can be supplemented with the plastic yellow square blocks out there, don't see how that would work, so I guess the 2x6 board is worth carrying, I'll put one in my truck, still lighter than the 2 B@l's.
