Leveling kit/Lift? Biggest tires without rub?

Hey everyone,
This is such a great site, the info is priceless. Anyway on to the questions.

When I got my '00 F250 7.3 4x4, the top leaf on the front drivers side was busted. I had a Rough Country leveling kit installed which raised the front 4" according to the installer. The rear was then 2" shorter than the front so I had a taller block put in to level the truck.

First question: Does this mean I have a 2" lift or 4" lift or other?

Second question: What is the biggest A/T tire I can use without rubbing?

The truck currently has 265/75 R16's

I'm new to truck modding (yes, I've got the bug). Your help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
BOMO

4" lift. The concern if your still on stock rims is rubbing your springs at full turn. 285s will do, and you MAY get away with a size bigger than that, even, but you should trial fit a tire and check it before purchasing to be sure. I do NOT recommend BFG ATs. They absolutely suck aBLEEPss in anything having to do with mud. I rue the day I decided to purchase them for Blizzard.

Superduty's are all lower in the front, so what you have is ezactly what you said, 2" in the rear, and 4" in the front, it isn't a complete 2" or 4", it is what it is, but it does look good. I hope that "leveling kit" came with a adjustable, or new drop bracket for the tracbar, hopefully both. As for tires, trying one on is good advice and one that I would follow. Don't know what to say about the BFG AT's I have run a few sets of them on previous trucks and they were great tires. Maybe they have changed something???
