if you are running 38X15.50's I would assume you are an 8" lift.

One sure way to find out is to measure on the back side of the track bar drop bracket and measure from the fram to the center of the stud holding the track bar I know for a fact these are not the same for 6 and 8 inch lifts mine is 9 inches. And you can run 38's on a 6 my buddy does on his pickup but from the looks of it I would agree its an 8

yeah i dont think a 6" will clear 38's. my old truck couldnt clear 38's with my 8"
i had to add 3" body. its weird, some people can clear em and some cant with 8"
looks 8 to me tho
oh yeah, take the running boards off. it would look bigger and better imo
