What lift is on this truck?

Edit: The truck is a 1999 7.3

Can someone tell me what lift is on this truck? Is it a good lift, bad lift? Will it fit a 2001 Power Stroke?

Anything I should look for or be concerned if I where to trade my stock stuff for this trucks aftermarket? If I where to do the trade I would have to ship the parts or go get them and would not have both trucks together.

The lift should work since its about the same year as yours. At least I think so. I think it would be risky shipping like that man.

if it is an early 99 then the pitman arm may not fit your splines... ?

I would be careful on this lift. You really ought to run crossover steering. See how bad that steering angle is.... Probably need a steering box kit too...

What does the rear look like? Do the blocks rotate the rear axle to make the drive line straighten out...

You probably would need front and rear drive lines as well with that kit. Or does it come with a new trans crossmember and a re-indexing ring for the transfercase (clock it 20 deg)

That almost looks like it might be a body lift on top of a suspension lift. I dont know, just looks funny or somthing

That is 10" truckin suspension hangers(junk)combined with 8" springs. Like what was mentioned earlier, it needs crossover. That much lift w/o crossover is asking for the selector shaft on the steering box to break. Do it right the first time.
