No level spot. How much level ram to use?

Too much?

You have blocks on the other side too. Are both sides off the ground? Are all 4 tires off the ground? I've been in a spot a couple times with one side off the ground about like that but I didn't have blocks under the jacks and the other side was on the ground. Just my opinion but I'd be a little uneasy like that.

With a site like that, I generally back the tires up on double 2x8 blocks to keep some of the load on the tires. Even so, your strut extension is about max. I have had sites that are too out of level to safely use. If you had two more 4x4's and blocks under the wheels, I'd say you're ok. Level Up will tell you if it tries to over extend.

My question when I see something that bad is how much slope is on that site? Based on how you have both sides blocked I'm assuming it's a front to rear slope. With that much slope, I would be nervous setting everything up on blocks. I'm curious how the front and rear jacks look.

I'm never excited about even 1 wheel off the ground. If that is the best site available I'd be going to another CG.

I bet the site is sloping front to back, that's why blocks on both sides. I would prefer larger blocks having a larger footprint and less jack extended. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do but please be safe about it. Try lowering the front as much as possible to bring the back down an equal amount.
