How to measure lift?

Well i bought my truck just like it is and havent lifted it or anything. But it does sit higher than factory height. It does have airbags on the back that are aired up. Without those being up the front sits higher....when aired up it sits more level. Not sure whats done to the front end to make it sit higher. Any ideas on what i can check for? Kinda wanting to know how big of tires i could run. Its got 285/75R16 (32.8x11.2 or something like that) and it has quite a bit of room left. Thanks in advance!

Re: How to measure lift?

hangers look stock. Your leaf springs are aftermarket.

Edit. How does it ride? Those front springs look stiff.

Re: How to measure lift?

How can you tell there aftermarket? Yeah it rides a little rough i guess. Its my first 3/4 ton and my last truck was a Chevy 1500 with a 6inch lift....so it was no cadillac lol Think i could fit 35's or even 33x13.5's with maybe a 20x12 wheel?

Re: How to measure lift?

Stock leafs only have three leafs I think. Looks like a mini pack might be 2.5"??? You can run 35's.
