Need help - Opinion on lift height.

I bought this truck almost 4 years ago. 2000 F350 7.3. When it was sold to me, is was advertised as a 10" lift with 38" TSL's on it. I always thought it was kind of small for a 10" lift - the dealer I bought it from "thought it was a Back Country" lift - I can't find anything marked on the suspension.

I've since put 38.5" Pitbull Maddogs on it - so those are the tires pictured - but I am curious.

Can anyone tell me what size lift they believe this to be? I'm almost positive there is no body lift.

Solid axle upfront - leaf springs front and back.

Thanks in advance.

you might be able to pull part numbers off the leaf springs or something.
i know my pro comp springs have part numbers on them.

Your probably right on that rough country, I don't have the paperwork in front of me I was just going by memory, I'll take a look at the springs and see what I can find. Thanks for the reply.
