Any idea how much lift I have?

I bought a 6.0 CC with no back story or history on it. I can tell its lifted but I'm not sure how much. The distance from the center of the shock eyes is 20.75" in the front and 25.5" in the rear on what appear to me stock shock mounts. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Looks to be a 4".

What are your fender measurements? I'm betting they are about 44"
