1" Rear Blocks?????

Does anybody make a 1" rear block? I took the blocks out of the back of my truck, and it sits about 1/2" lower in the rear now. It's not really that noticable, but it bugs the crap out of me.

It's more noticable when your behind my truck. I was just thinking about putting excursion front leafs in mine to drop the front a bit.

Here are some pictures for referance. Don't pay attention to the lack of a front bumper.

I was thinking the same thing, but I don't want to have to shorten the front drive shaft. Plus I like the ride height in the front, just needs to be a hair taller in the rear.

You could always build your own... Buy a foot of 1"X3" thick steel and the right size of rod (1/2" IIRC) for the little knob on top. cut the slab to the right length, drill a hole in the center for the dowel. Place it in and weld it solid. Leave some space in the bottom for the other dowel.

That's what i would do if i wanted it done now.

I've seen a few duallys without the rear block and they look pretty good, even with the stock wheels on there.
