Hey Chris,

 Yeah i thought that was you.....

 Your truck (back in 2006 or so i think) was my inspiration for running 33s. Whenever i googled "nissan 720 4x4" your truck popped up in the images...

   As for the torsion bar cranking.... If your truck has never been re-indexed then here is what you do (what i did).... Buy your lift A-arms or BJ spacers because it will determine your maximum lift and still retain an alignment You will also need to buy longer shocks... Make sure all bushings and steering parts are in top shape.

 So with your front shocks removed... jack up the front end and then loosen up the torsion bar adjusting bolts till there is no pressure on the components anymore.... Pull (this can be a real pain sometimes) the t-bar out of the lower control arm and rotate the bar JUST ONE COG! Slide back in..... now when you re-attach the adjusting bar bolt it will be threadding at the very tip of the bolt because the arm is about 2" down from where it was before... now crank the bars up leaving about 1" of adjustment.... let the truck down, drive it around the block and see what it needs,,, more lift? then tighten the bolts more! when happy and camber is reasonable, bring it to alignment.

 if your suspension is in good shape and you have a smart alignment guy then you will get a true 3" of lift from stock.... now if you have already cranked the t-bars up you will only get about an additional 1.5" after re-index.

 

 

 If you need anything let me know... I have alot of stuff. HAHA
