measuring lift?

to measure how big your lift is how would you reference distance between 2 points? and what points would you use? I was told when i bought my truck it has an 8" but i think it is a 10".

All lifts are made different, the easiest way to tell is looking at the components that the lift has. Do you have a pic?

2006 F-250 PSD King Ranch ccsb FX4 - 14" Lift w/ TGC 4-Link, Fox 2.0 Resi's, ARP's, EGR deleted, Cat ELC, Mishimoto Radiator/Intercooler, 4" TB exhaust/6" Tip, SCT w/ IDP & Gearhead Tunes, MO962's w/ 43" Goodyears

Rock Crawler/Trails Rig: 94 Jeep YJ - 12" lift, 1 tons, LS1, 40" boggers... F&R 4-link, coilovers and a 4BT soon

I have an 8" rough country with 3.5" blocks in the rear for a total off 11.5" in the rear and 8 up front, still waiting to install my 2.5" lift shackles. I would say that you have a 10" lift.
