If I read it correctly, you're planning on stacking blocks to obtain 6'' block in the rear? Thats NEVER recommended. Trevor at Precision Metal Fab can make you a solid unitized block for whatever size you need, and you can even get the traction block setup that several have gotten, and mine should be on the way middle of next week.

As stated above, I think I'd try to get a single block. But, at the very least, I would take the blocks to a metal shop somewhere and at least get them welded together so that they are one solid unit.

Will you need longer shocks than supplied?And the pan rod is for 3" and not 5".
