I do the same, depends on how uneven the campsite is...., and I don't like to have my jack stand approaching full extension anyways (avoid jams, minimize flexing, etc.).
I do make sure my riser blocks are notably wider then the PTJ base plate in the event the PTJ decides to move/flex around a little (even the manual jacks will). Ever have a tongue jack base plate "snap" over about 1" do the the slope of the campsite and/or when extending or retracting the the jack? Get's one's attention real fast......, thus the wide wood riser blocks.
Seen some folks put some pretty small blocks under their jack stand bases that aren't any wider then the metal base plate
