You also might want to consider an add-a-leaf or shackles to lift the rear over using blocks.

That way you can try to avoid any type of axle wrap issues.

Well I already have 2" shackles and I want 2" more. The backs a tad lower than the front right now. And since I don't haul a lot of heavy loads I figured blocks would keep my bad ride from getting worse haha.

What is a sign of axle wrap, like how would I know it's happening?

When you goose it and the back of your truck shudders. Adding an AAL will not make your ride terrible. I had one on my truck for a year before I even lifted it

Oh alright. Well, I already have the blocks so we'll see how it does. 4x4 and edge come with 2" from the factory right? I'd think I'd be fine, we'll see I guess.

I believe, yes. I actually got rid of my blocks when I lifted since I knew how bad the axle wrap would be. Got a set of off road traction bars too. Haven't had a problem since the install.
