Lifted or Leveled?

My fender measurments on my 2003 F-250 are 45" for the rear and 44" for the front from the ground to the bottom center of the fenderwells. Anyone know if that's leveled? Lifted? Stock? It's sitting on BFG 35's. I have searched but to no avail so far....thanks for any help.

Don't measure to the wheel wells, traditionally the rear wheel wells are shorter than the fronts. Measure to the bottom of the body under the front door and in front of the rear wheel well. Nobody is paying attention to the wheel well top alignment, they're looking at how parallel the bottom is to the deck. Personally, I like myine nose down, it levels when loaded.

WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!

You've got a 4" lift. More specifically 4" lift in the front and 3" lift in the rear.



And FWIW....fender measurements are a perfectly fine way to measure lift height IMO.

That is definitely lifted like Brian said. Take some pics of the front leafs, brackets, and shocks and we can probably tell you what kid it is.

looks like the standard 4" pro comp lift to me with the add a leaf in the rear with the block, and a whole new front leaf.... take a look at the drivers/frame side of the track bar, is there a drop bracket on it, as well as a drop pitman arm? I would assume yes, but just curios!
