Without weight distribution, yes. While offroad trucks have a higher ride height, the spring rate is softer to allow for better articulation over rough terrain. The result is when you load it with raw weight the suspension wallows out.
This is where weight distribution comes to play. It forces the rear end back up shifting weight to the front axle and leveling everyone out.
So adjusted correctly yes you will be able to bring it to level. You might need to get stronger bars depending on what you have now.
When WDH was first showing up one thing they did at shows was put a set of bars on so tight that it would lift the rear axle off the ground. They would take the rear tires off and use 4WD to move it back and forth. I'll see if I can find a video.
