Just figured I'd throw this out there for ya.
I did 3 risers like this before this past winter, and all of them held up with no problems.
I prefer to buy everything from fleet farm, since you can get it in bulk and all for under $5. your bolts are/should be 1/4"-20. Without a riser, your bolts are/should be 2" long. Say you want a 3" riser, you need to get 5" 1/4"-20 bolts (4 of them). I found it impossible to find grade 8 5" long bolts, so I settled with grade 5 (could only find them at ace hardware) If you want a 2" riser, you need 4" long bolts which you can easily find in grade 8. Then, for the riser part, just stack 1/4" washers. I believe it's about 12-15 washers per inch. Count how many it takes to get your desired height, and get 4 times that. Pretty easy to do, and very cheap. The pics will explain the rest.
BTW, I do have a 3" powermadd block riser I may sell if I get a 5" rox for my new sled (I have the $, but want to save up before I blow $100 on a riser) The riser was painted a few different colors, so I'd wire-wheel it for you before I give it to ya, but then again, it may be fall before I get a rox riser, and don't want to sell this one just quite yet
The pics are from my dads sled
I did 2 of the bolts right side up and 2 of them upside down because it was easier to hold the washers in this way.
