Here's a recommended rescue truck inventory for stabilization;
_100_ 2”x4”x18” wood cribbing
__60_ 4”x4”x18” wood cribbing
__60_ 4”x4”x18” wood wedge cribbing
__10_ 4”x4”x48” wood cribbing
__8__ pairs of wood or plastic stepchocks
NOTE: Rescue equipment inventory must include plentiful supply of wood blocking in standardized dimensions. Plastic cribbing is only acceptable as pre-formed stepchocks. Individual plastic cribbing blocks are NOT permitted and will not be used.
__1__ complete buttress stabilization systems
The web site that I recommend for cribbing information is http://www.sover.net/~branch/Safety.html. There is excellent technical information there and throughout this site.

Not sure if this is a question or a comment, but I need to ask what are the 4 foot 4x4's for? In my travels with my little blue tool over the past 10 years we have found that the 4 foot 4x4 is too long to be short and too short to be long. It is not quite enough for a side resting vehicle and way too long for the proper angle for a roof resting vehicle. However if you take the same 8 footer that you started out with and cut it at the 3 foot mark you now have 2 very usable pieces. 3 footers are perfect for a good upside down stab job and the 5 footers get you where you need to be for the side resters.
Just some thoughts ....

100 - 2" x 4" x 18"??? That seems to be a lot of "building material" to be carrying around for stabalization.....Richard Nester
