Cranked bars AND shackles. The shackles added an additional 1.5-2" lift in the rear...that's why it's so raked.

i put the shackles on because when i put my 2 quads on the trailer it dropped the back of the truck lower and looked like crap. kinda like the big superduties you see towin stuff and the headlights are blinding airplanes. probably doesnt help much that my t bars got 90000 on them and proably sagging even though they are cranked. plus it will look a lot better once i get my 32s on

Yeah i would have definatly done an AAL if your worried about sagging with a heavy load. Thats just too much rake. I know alot of guys will run the shackles but put in smaller block than factory.

I'm looking forward to pics with the bigger tires tho!

Yea....them bars on your truck are probably sagged. I put on #1 bars(the highest spring rate) when I put the superlift on. My "B" bars were pretty saggy. I was maxxed out the driver side as well.
