so i was showing off.

^^^thats how you know its bad.^^^

going mudding, got stuck pretty bad, no big deal. took two winches to get me out. got out and was pissed cause I got stuck by a undetectable clay hole. so i go through again and haul ***, and picked a bermed area, hit my newly made bumper HARD on the bank side popped out and kept going. i made it but with a costly price. I obviously cracked my radiator, and THREW THE CAB forward because of the body lift blocks (or whatever i forgot the technical name). so I come out and now my 33s are rubbing on hard turns (because the cab shifted at the mount points) and there is a gap between the truck bed and cab. no biggie just have to loosen em and straiten it. but what in worried about now, is that on the drivers side A arm, the bump stop is almost touching and on the passenger side, it is touching or barely isnt. the front ends looks like it dropped, so im wondering could it be the torsion bars that bent??? what else could it be??? I need to try to fix it all tommorrow, so...

I need opinions.

oh and my bumper came out unscathed. custom bumpers made by me rock! no I need a custom skidplate, haha.

Can you take some pictures so I can see what you're talking about a little better? Examine the torsion bar sub member, you may have twisted it. You could have blown out your shocks, although that wouldn't cause your truck to sag so much. Check your upper and lower balljoints.
