    Much better! That's one sweet looking ride. Looks vaguely familiar to mine, shown here. :cool1: Mine is now sitting on 35's. I guess I need to get a few newer pics posted. :blush:

    Um no, blocks are completely fine as log as they aren't two feet tall.

    FYI, most 3/4 and 1 ton 4x4 pickups have blocks in the rear. My '01 Dodge Cummins 4x4 has a 4" block in the rear. I wouldn't put them on a hardcore trail only truck but a 4" and smaller is fine for the average weekend wheeler and driver. Most show truck guys do use blocks because they look good, are a cheap way of achieving lift, and doesn't need to be super strong. Makes sence to me.

    I'm using 2" blocks on my rig. I see nothing wrong with it since it doesn't give me axle wrap and I am too broke to buy new 3" lift 64" springs for my setup. By using blocks, a home-made shackle flip, lowering shackles and used 64" chevy springs I have a very cheap, very effective lift for my K5. Blocks are fine if they're under 4" and not made from aluminum.
