Did you keep your sway bars on to simulate your flexibility? on level ground remove bolts to sway bar and try again...

Mine reacts about the same as Harley Stroker's when I drive up/down an incline I am sure if I were to simply lift the rear tire as you have I would have a similar situation. if I drop my sway bars I get more flex out of it driving up/down inclines.

I didn't want to bend anything. The truck could have gone more I just didn't want to risk it

I think I might un-hook my sway bars today for some pics if I get a bit of time latter.

that last pic actually shows the right rear off the ground. the traction bars definitely took away from the flex in the rear. they will be getting redesigned.
