I think it would be a better solution to just have the whole truck lifted front and back and keep the rake the same. Just my 2c....
Ok well see you obviously don't know a whole lot about levelling.
1. Most people replace their rear block such as myself. 2.5" in the front 3" block in the back solves most sag problems.
2. Airbags. I'd like the bags but don't have the cash at the moment. These will keep your truck completely level at all times under any weight numerous people have them.

On a side note many members don't have to tow boats or whatever else. They occasionally throw things in the bed and that's fine. It takes quite the amount of weight to affect the angle. I tow a SkiDoo GTX Limited amongst other things and that's heavy as hell, rake is not affected what so ever.

Bye now

Default Leveled with new tires

I just traded my old Toyo's for 285/75 17 Toyo AT2 Extremes, an inch bigger and a lot better handling and traction and a little dirty lol.

Good point, I can definitely see them channeling the water better, but from stop to start and vise versa the BFG's siping will control the truck better (less slippage).

Firestone Transforce AT.. Goodyear also makes a tire in this size but I travel a lot and these Firestone Transforce are what I consider to be subtle all-terrain's. They have a 60,000 mile life. They're so quiet on the highway in such a smooth ride. I love thrm and would recommend them to anyone. They're very similar to the Goodyear silent armor
