How to tell if front and rear are level?

I installed a new lift but it looks to me like I still have some rake. What's a good way to measure height of front and rear to determine their the same?

Nevermind. I guess I just set a level on my rock sliders.

Sorry. 6 hour lift install has me not thinking straight.

Ok. One minute I look at it and the front seems low. The time I look it seems level. Not sure if this pic helps.

fill the gas tank, throw some tools in the back, have a buddy sit in the back seat, then see what you think.

"level" is overrated....

How about a full ice chest?

And the tank is full at the moment.
