What lift is this?

My buddy got a 08 CCLB with a lift already on it. Anyone know what lift this is and possibly what size lift? The truck has 37x13.50's on it with no issues? I looked all over and cant find anything with a name. What looks stock and what is aftermarket? The rear shocks are Pro Comp MX6's but I called them and its not theirs.

Looks like a 3" black in the rear. The front appears to be maybe a 2.5" coil spacer with aftermarket 3" coils? Im just guessing on the lift that the coils provided. 5.5" front lift with 3" in the rear should make the truck sit pretty level. Does the truck sit pretty level? Aftermarket coils appear to originally be silver. I dont recall any companies coils being silver. Maybe BTS coils?

Great thanks. The truck sits a little higher in the back than the front. The truck looks a lot like mine as far as its stance. Are the coil springs not the stock ones?

Stock coils are black. The ones on that truck are silver. So unless someone repainted them, they are aftermarket. But I dont see any signs of them being repainted. You might call top gun customz, or truck toys and see if they can pin point the whos springs they are.

That's a good call with those stacked blocks out back. How much lift are you looking for?

I think he wants about the best 4in lift he can get. He is gonna tow around his farm but mainly just a DD / farm truck. What lift would suit him best?

I just installed a 4" BDS lift with fox shox on my '11 250 sdcr-fx4, 35"Toyos on stock rims. Sets pretty level and rides great.
