Is there such thing as a 1997 f350 high boy?

I was looking at a 1997 power stroke for sale. It had 35" tires and it looked like it had a lift. I asked about the lift and the owner said it had a stock 4" lift and it was called a f350 high boy. Has anybody heard of this?

not that i know of. 350s were high to begin with. they actually look like a 4 inch compared to the 250s. its really noticeable on the short cab trucks they look high but no high boys that i know of. Try asking in the OBS chat thread those guys really know their stuff

i know in the 70s they called some of the f250 and f350s highboys because they sat higher than a standard one but ive never heard it about a 90s

I know a guy that has an OBS with 36's on it with no lift. It sits considerably higher than most other OBS's. He says he bought it with the "snowplow package" on it

the "highboys" were from 1969 till early 1976 and they were only in 3/4 and one tons. and the only differance was the rear blocks and some extra springs in the front. as for the obs is concered the one tons sit a little higher than the 3/4 tons and you can get some good size rubber under the truck. if a lift is in question measure the rear blocks that will tell you if its lifted or not.
