Re: Drag blocks!
It would make more sense to worry about laying the truck out the right way first, then use whichever works better for your particular application in the back. From the few trucks I've done, front mount makes it way too sketchy trying to steer.
Personally, I prefer frame plating over blocks. Think about what the block is doing. Say your truck weighs 4000lbs, and that you have a perfect 50/50 distribution(just to make it easier) if you drag the rear frame itself, you are dragging 2000lbs on a say a 1.5ft by 3in rail, on both sides. If you drag blocks, you are concentrating that same 2000lbs on two 2"x4" sections.
That equates to more stress on the blocks, the mounts, and the frame itself. More sess increases the likelyhood of a part failure, and when your talking bout a 4-7lb chunk of steel, shite gets real dangerous, real fast. The last thing we need as a mini community is more people doing thing in a dangerous manner.
