rear block question, with pic

i recently purchased an 06 f350 4x4 dually. i was under the truck today horseing around and noticed that i have two lift locks stacked. i am assumeing that this is not stock. one appears to be 2" while the other is 1" for a total of 3". now i like the appearance of the truck, only would want to go slightly higher, so can i get just a single 3"-4" block? im not a fan of the stacked block, looks unsafe. thanks

They are 3" on a 350. and 2 on a 250. It looks as if you have a 250 factory block with a 1" spacer. I am not 100% but pretty sure.

I measured the blocks on my F350 and they are 3.5", I also measured the blocks I took out of my F250 when I did the lift on it and they are 2"

This is correct, some F350 dually's have a 250 block though, never knew why though. THen you have an extra inch or so in the middle. The bottom is stock "base" plate

so if i found a stock 350 block i would be in good shape, it would eliminate the stacked blocks and only raise me about 1/2". i think this will be the plan of action. figures id be one of the ones to get a 250 block in a 350. thanks guys

There is a seller on ebay that sells lift blocks, Newton lifts is the name, i am running a set of his blocks, hold up very well. You can get any 1/2'' size from 1-6'', so you could run anything you want. Im at school now but i can get a link when im at home if you like.
