Rear blocks on FX4

How tall are the blocks on a 2004 FX4? I thought they were 2" but a guy at a shop told me they are 2.5". Are we both just estimating?

Thanks for checking. I just measured again and it looks right at 2" to me. I'm just measuring the block with the wing that sits on top of the "plate" that's on the axle, correct?

Also, does Ford make a block shorter than 2"?
