Is a 6" or 4" dock bumper thick enough? The basic purpose of a loading dock bumper is to keep the top of the trailer a minimum of 4" away from the wall. Maintaining this gap, means it is important to be aware of any slope approaching the dock; if there is a slope the bumper thickness will need to be increased to maintain this gap.
