    From tire to the first piece of metal/plastic or whatever you hit....lay a straight edge on the tire where it strikes the ground...move it up until it hits something on the truck, measure angle and there you go....piece of cake...the more lift and tire you have the higher the angle... and witha little horsepower you can cheat that also!!!!

    You can use a sheet of plywood by placing one end on the bottom of the tires and raise it up till it stops. You can measure the angle by using a regualar protractor with a string and a washer. Craftsman has a really accurate one that has a magnet on the bottom.
