Totally agree with above post. I wouldnt go over 4" with blocks in the rear. not to say you cant but just from prior experience, you dont want a block spitting out on you going down the highway...not cool. Plus the axle wrap and pinion stress under loads goes way up with blocks. You can also look into re-curving and adding a leaf or two to your packs. I have about 6" of lift on my OBS with no blocks on the stock(kind of) rear packs. I had them re-curved for 100 bucks, added some leaves and ditched the overloads. That, combined with a shakle flip that i made gave me plenty of lift. Rides a little rough but its still a 1 ton+ too.
