    Before you spend hundreds of dollars on bags (and make your truck look like the bottom pic) consider a set of RV skid rollers. I fabricated mine, but you can buy them at RV parts houses. Find an inconspicuous mounting spot and they'll roll you right over bumps without damage.

    I think you can get away with a slight raising of your truck in the rear (they look better with a slight rake) and only a taildragger should have the ass sitting below the front. but nothing wrong with a set of helper bags in the rear. I had the same thing on my 53 wagon. Helped me get over alot of stuff.

    Maybe you can raise the bumper just a tad and improve your angles.
