    <font color="green"> I can't tell if your truck is a K5 with a truck cab or a shortbed truck. If it's a shortbed truck then your RTI is 672 on a 20 degree ramp, if it's a K5 then it's 741. </font>

    Is the passenger rear hitting the flatbed? It looks like you could stuff a little more in the front, if you put tubs on the flatbed you could probably flex a bit more, that is if you are hitting the bed.

    Your front axle is barely twisting. Is the sway bar still hooked up or do you have really stiff front springs?

    Sway bar is long gone. Those are BDS 6" springs. I was always under the impression they were soft. Dosent seem like it. My shackles are also 1.5" longer. Dont really know if that is benneficial or not.
