if removing the bars works and the front hits you might be able to use a wheel on the tongue jack to help as well but might lift the back end up - just go slow which I am pretty sure you already know this.
I know if I do not have my bars for the equalizer attached to the truck - the rear of my truck drops a full inch so it may raise the back enough to clear.
