Just Bought a 01 with 32k miles on it

Ok, so my brother in law just bought a 2001, PSD, 4dr, 4x4, short bed, lariat, with 32,800 miles on it. I have not gotten to see this truck yet but I have seen a couple of pictures of it. Probably the cleanest used truck ever. but again that is from pictures. It has a unique paint job on it. He bought this truck to run straight Veggi Oil on. oh, I think the tires are 35's which will have to come off to pull the lift off, I guess?

Heres the deal. It has a 2 or 3 inch lift on it. I do know this, 6' 10" parking garage is the lowest that he can park in. It needs to come off. What are typical lifts for that truck, is it just blocks under the leaf springs? is there anything special about pulling the lift off or do i need to watch out for?

Awesome lookin' truck! I'm not sure about the front, but I think if there is any lift on the rear it should just be blocks

Dang, he stole that thing! I'm jealous.
The thing you will have to watch when pulling the lift is a lot of kits use new front springs and blocks in the rear. Your best bet is to throw and ad on Craigslist or something and offer to swap the lift kit for stock parts plus a little cash and see if anyone bites.
