Got a lift?

I bought this truck but not sure if it has a lift or not. I counted the leaf springs on this one compared to another F350 and it had I believe it was 3 more leafs and looked like a taller block. Does it look like it has one? Current tires a 33x12.5. Can I go to a 35?

If I turn lock to lock I have about an inch or slightly more room between the tire and the back of the front fender wells. Not sure if I can fit a 12.5" tire in there with 35's. I don't like the 16.5" wheels though...can't find any decent tires.

Should be able too might have to take the little black spoiler thing off the front bumper if it has it. not sure though a guy here at work has an 05 with 35's stock but it has coils in the front. On my OBS truck I ran 35's stock for a wile. If I remember right my truck stock only had 2 springs in the front add a leaf is about $100 if you don't think it will fit.

ya you should be able to fit 35's. you might have to trim the bottom plastic part of the front bumper a little so they dont rub when you turn.

I ran my 35's with a leveling kit, had to trim the bumper a little and would scrub the inner fender liner at full turn. There are alot of tire options with the 16.5 rims, i have BFG's on mine now. Will be getting 37's here in the near future!!
