You could be right. I'm still digging into this today. While I was at the muffler shop earlier this week getting a quote on new duel exhaust I took a couple pics underneath while I was there. This 49 was supposedly built from 2015 and finished this spring but you know how that goes. Big 10 rear end and a 91 S10 front clip.

My eyeballs are telling me that the bumper is parallel to the floor and the rear of the bed is parallel to the bumper. You are done.
It is a truck. It looks right. Who needs more?

I believe you are correct sir.

"Chevy Lean." They all do it, usually to the driver's side. Yours is/was barely noticeable. Heck, with you in the driver's seat it probably levels out perfectly. Nice truck.

Thanks for the comment. I crawled under the truck and took measurements in 6 different places on both sides from front to back and saw nothing that would indicate the truck leaning. All the body mounts seems fairly new as I'm assuming they were replaced during the build from 2015-2019. I think I'm good with the way it looks now.
