Torsion Bar crank or somthing else

I am days away from buying my new tires 265/75/16's or I guess 31" tires.
My question is there somthing else I can do to raise the fron up other than crank the t-bars?

I allready bought the shackles fom summit for the back

I like the idea of the t-bar crank its free. I am just worried about having stuff wear out faster

Cranking the tbars is the only option other than buying a suspension lift. The torsion keys are not a good idea becuase its the same thing as cranking the bars.

For 31s you don't even need to crank the bars and you defn don't need the shackles in the back unless your going to remove the block.

Well not to be a copy cat I want it to look like triggers truck

I didnt know those tires would fit stock height. I messured my truck as it sits and it was close but I was figuring some rubbing maybe

If I added shakles do I have to remove the block so it sits right with t-bars cranked all the way?

But Trigger has a heavy cap on the back that weighs his bed down, thats why he needs shackles. I'm running 32s stock with only a mild t-bar crank. I wouldn't install the shackles at all.
