What are your Fender Measurements?

I was a member here several years back. I had a 2002 7.3 4x4 with 6.5" of lift on 37" tires. I built that truck up too far and it got way too impractical as a daily driver so I sold it and bought a half ton Chevy gasser. I know what you are all thinking but it made sense at the time and I don't regret it one bit.

Fast forward to a couple weeks ago and I sold the Silverado (just for the record it was a great truck and I really did like it) only because the opportunity came up to buy a super, super, super clean 2002 F-350. The truck is a SRW crew cab long bed 4x4 6-speed. It already has most all the essentials. Guages, tune, exhaust, full replacement bumpers, and finally a mild lift. That is where my question comes in.

The guy I bought the truck from says he thinks it is leveled but not really lifted. I'm not so sure, it looks awfully tall to me for a leveled truck.The truck is a F-350 SRW so to begin with it should sit 2" higher in the rear than a comparable F-250, yes? It sits almost level, about an inch lower in the front than the rear. That could be because of the super heavy full replacement bumper sitting up there for all I know.

What I'm hoping to find is how much this thing is lifted or leveled just for reference. I just put a new set of 315/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers on it that measure 34.5".

Could you guys tell me what your front and rear fender measurements are? Preferably leaf spring trucks that have either been "leveled" or lifted 4" or so with 35" tires. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
