mine is like that after the body lift doesnt bother me to bad but if I didnt have the running boards I think it would annoy me more.

This summer I wanna get rid of it and run the tube over the rear axle and dump it and be done no more tips to polish

If you started the bend earlier and made it an less of an angle it wouldn't hit the spring.
You could dump it but it would be a little close to the cab as it is now.
