Hmm ok still not quite understand. My truck looks level at front but if i crank it up it would look like the front would be higher than the back. And are the reason why crank it up cause u want to put 33 and up tires on it right? Just to get more wheel well room?

No idea, I am coiled, not TTB. Better to use the search function and read every page of the how-to for that answer.

Parked in the "mud pit" section of the work parking lot, so I could fling that clay mud they have all over town.

Then I hit the carwash on the way home LoL

Asked a buddy of mine to help me out and cut off a 1/4 in on two of my studs on the rear end. The lockers wouldn't thread all the way and seat. All the studs in the rear are 1/4 longer than the front. Wouldn't trust anyone else with this job!

Installed a battery blanket on the '98. I still need to do the '11 and install the block heater.
