question about stacking rear blocks on a dually.

I have a 2008 f350 dually and I'm getting ready to put on a RC 6 inch lift. It comes with a 4 link front but has a add aleaf and small block for the rear. I don't really want to stack blocks in the rear. Would I be fine or should I by a 5 inch block. It'll be sitting on 37's. The only think I tow with it is a 25 foot lite travel trailer and some camping or hunting gear in the bed and that's only 3 to 5 times a year.

im not a big fan of stacking blocks in the rear. hit up Trevor at PMF for a better block solution. An even better solution is his traction block setup.

Can't afford the traction block setup. Is there anything else besides adding traction bars.

you could just do the rear block but you more than likely will have some axle wrap while towing. you can also get larger rear springs.

I would not stack blocks. I picked up a 4" welded blocks off eBay for $65 shipped. I would think they would have 5" ones.

I found that procomp makes traction bars and mounting kit for my truck for about $480. Are these worth the price.
