Define uneven? Are they wearing only at the edges? Center? Cupping? That truck has a solid rear axle so there are no real adjustments but there are things that can be done if it has a bent axle. Have the tires been rotated on a regular basis? What condition are the front tires in?

They are wearing on the outer edges. The tires have not been rotated as often as they should have been and the front seem to wear pretty evenly.

About the only things that would cause that wear is the lack of rotation and possibly vehicle weight if the tires are not up to spec. On a solid axle it would take a pretty good bend to cause any noticeable wear and that bend would destroy the rear axle long before the tires showed wear.
Are these tires stock size and stock rims?
