Quite a bit has happened since last time I posted. I got new tires a little while back and finished installing my propane conversion this afternoon! I know everyone's heard it a million times, but i'm very impressed with the kit from GotPropane. Easy install and my truck runs MUCH better now.

Next on my list is lifting the rear to level the truck out. I'm having a hard time figuring out how much lift I'll actually need. If I put a level on the bed I only need half an inch to level it out which doesn't seem possible to me. the fenders don't seem to be on the same line either.

Does anyone have any tips on how to measure the amount of lift you need?

if the tires don't rub you have plenty of lift!

park the rear end on a piece of 2x4 and see how it looks level wise. Or any pieces of scrap wood. Once it looks right measure the height of the scrap and there you go. Doesn't take much 1/2" could be all it needs.
