It should have 2" blocks just like any other 250. 350s have about a 4" block from the factory.

Actually they are 2 for 250's From my experience with my 06 F250 and many others I've been under.

And 3.75 for F350 from my experience with my 99 F350 and many others I have been under.

IDK what cab configuration you have, but if you have a carrier bearing on the drive shaft, you might have to shim it.

if you do not have a carrier bearing then you need to get your blocks with the proper angle on them in order to set your pinion angle right.

On edit, looking at your avatar it looks like you have a crew cab shortbed, so you should have a carrier bearing. Shim the carrier bearing properly, but still pay attention to the angling of the blocks you buy BEFORE you buy them.

Try this link, and scroll down to the skyjacker kits. They show a 2" block drop, $48 #CBL 206. Then contact one of the vendors to see if they can hook you up.
