lift question

I am trying to figure out what size lift i have on my truck. It was on it when I bought it and the dealer sprayed everything with undercoat.

i currently have 325/65/18 on it now, and they are bald so i am trying to figure out what wheel/tire combo i should go with.

I am looking at the Fuel Hostages 18x9 with 325/65/18 Goodyears, but not sure on the backspacing and offset i need.

I took some measurements (but not sure what i should be actually measuring).

From the ground to the bottom of the bumper:
Front: 23in
Rear: 29in

From the ground to the fender:
Front: 43in
Rear:46in

From the center of the wheel to the fender:
Front: 27in
Rear: 29in

Front spring: 16in
Rear blocks: a 2in and a 4in

The front doesn't have any type of spacer.

factory 350s have one 3.5-4" block (can't remember exactly). That tire size is only about half an inch taller than the oem tire.

Mine has 2 blocks. The factory one and a extra 2in.

I was thinking leveling kit aswell but wasn't sure because there isn't a front spacer.

Yea it is, I wanted a short bed but after getting this I am glad I went with long bed.

It was a little getting used to coming from a neon srt4, now my jeep srt8 feels like a go-cart
