Icon5 1" BL Blocks

Does anyone know where I can get some of these? The Ebay seller listed in the 1" BL sticky is not a registered user anymore according to Ebay. I have searched Ebay and all over the internet and have not found anybody that sells them individually. I have even looked at buying a jeep kit to use the blocks, but they only come with 11 blocks not 12 IDK why. I would like to do a 1" BL but this is holding me back. If anybody knows that would be great.

Jason

Thanks, I will get to work on Monday and see if I can find any. I going to call PA and see if they will sell them to me. I don't want to pay a ridiculous amount for them. I am surprised no companies sells them individually.

Yea, if the blade is 1/8" wide I will lose 1/4" total just from the blade. I could get 2 blocks from one 3" block.
04blackedge,
I would love to have those blocks but I would still need 4 more 3" blocks.

If you are going to go through all the trouble of doing a BL, why not do a 3"?

I have considered doing a 3" and I have the same opinion. Why do all the work for only 1", but you don't have to extend ground straps, put a steering extension, etc. I only want to run 33" tires. They will fit stock so I just want a little more room. The tires I am going to run are 255/85/16 or 33.5x10.50 so I don't think I need all 3" to avoid rubbing with such a narrow tire. Also I really don't like body lifts, but I think 1" is acceptable. Plus rangers look good with BL's. I just bid on 6 3" blocks on ebay that I could cut down, but it doesn't say if they are 3" in diameter. I have to wait for a response from the seller. I am going to keep looking.

255/85/16 is a 33x10, not a big difference but just so you know.

If you pay $31 for those blocks you got ripped.

They make the blocks still...just the seller we used to get our blocks from doesn't exist anymore. Just because the seller doesnt exist anymore does not mean that the blocks are not being manufactured anymore. Call PA (Performance Accesories) and find out.
