pressure treated 2x8's but alot of the time you shouldnt need too much of anything under them, just enough to keep them from sinking into the soft ground

We use some scrap, pressure treated 8 x 8's about 12 inches in length.

I was thinking about getting the Lego style blocks but I was wondering if they would hold the weight of the FW on soft ground. I have used CMU's in the past but they are a bit heavy. I made some plates out of scrap that I will try for now.

What I did was take 2 pieces of 3/4 plywood and screw them together, then took 2 each 4x4 7 inched long screwed them to the plywood, then took another piece of plywood on top of the 4x4. They weigh 3 lbs apiece, so that is 18pounds, was really thinking about buying the lego set, a lot less weight. The plywood on the bottom is 10x10, and the plywood on to is the size of the 4x4.

I bought a piece of pressure treated 2x6 when the wood went on sale. I cut it into shorter blocks for use under the jacks or tires. The wood blocks will offer better support on soft ground.

The Lynx leveling blocks

WILL penetrate into soft or sandy ground doing little but making mud cookies of different sizes and shapes.

I tried the Lynx with my TT and broke a couple on soft ground with rocks. They seem good for paved spots. I used CMU'S because my TT has hand crank down stabilizers and tounge jack, and my shoulders would get tired by the time I got camp set.

MY new FW is quite a bit heavier than my TT, I'm going to try the scrap wood plates for now, but I may get something lighter and more compact in the future.
