    Nice looking truck and new Boss. Those lights must be bright. Just put ballast in you should be fine. Good luck.

    nice setup. just add some ballast in the rear and it will level right out and handle better.

    Looks like Boss is pre-punching the holes for mounting wings now. Wish mine had that...

    "Cranking the bars" refers to adjusting the torsion bar mounts under the truck by literally "cranking" the bolt a couple of turns to add pre-load to the bars. This makes the front of the truck ride higher and/or compensate for additional weight on the front. This practice is common with Chevy trucks, but questionable for the fact that it increases the likelyness of over-torquing the bars and having one snap. It also changes the suspension geometry and may result in the need for an alignment job. The "right" way (...arguably....) is to install Timbren bump stops. That avoids the extra stress on the bars.
