If you run a 10.50 you may need to trim just a bit.

i heard if you crank the tbars you mess up something with the tires though? you guys all prefer cranking the tbars rather than getting a 1.5 levling kit?

Ya the torsion bar keys from 2007 and up are smaller. That is why people do the "pre key mod"
