rear block ?

What size rear blocks do I need to have the rear of my 05 F250 level with Icon/DR 4.5 front springs. I want to replace the stock block and just have a single block.

I did mine by parking on concrete flat surface. Mesured from ground thru center of center cap to top of fender arch. and just mesured the block in the back and ordered what i needed to put me where i wanted to be which i went 1" higher in the back. I went 4" lift 5" block.

The 4.5" kits come with a 5" rear block to sit level.

Yep, 5" year blocks.

Either Icon or OUO.

Actually I think I'll be going with a set of these with a built in bump stop probably in 5.5". I run a glass tonneau cover and a 91 gallon WVO tank in the bed.

Similar to the OUO blocks.

The OUO blocks allow you to upgrade to 3/4" u-bolts if you want even more beef.

Yeah, these have that option as well. Trevor will build them as you want them. I am quite likely to do the 3/4 upgrade if for no other reason than I tend to over build everything that I build. The OUO blocks bottom doesn't incorporate the ubolts like Trevor's do and Trevor's are less expensive.

I am trying to decide between the Icon 4 link and the OUO Link Arm though. any opinions there?

What's the reason for going to 3/4" U bolts?

Strength would be the obvious answer. I don't expect that I'll ever be running enough power or getting extreme enough off road to break the stock 5/8" U bolts though.
