Are you just getting PMF's bars with a 3-4" block? I believe that the stock block in the F350 is 4" although I haven't measured to confirm it. Wouldn't mind getting a 3" block with the tracbars since I run 30 PSI when empty but am slightly higher in the rear because of my airbags. Guess I'll just wait and see what your setup looks like.

The DRW F-350 block is two inches (measured yesterday for the same reason, wanting to get PMF traction bars).

The blocks will vary on what packages you have on the truck i.e.. (Camper/trailer pkg) I have both and my blocks are 3.75", I will keep the same blocks as I installed ICON 2.5 coils and and when I order the track bars Trevor said stay with same size blocks and truck will ride level, I only keep 10 psi in my bags when unloaded, which Firestone recommends you keep a minimum of 10 psi when not loaded.
