Not sure.

I would have to look at mine to compare but I am sure that it is not stock. They at least lowered the back and maybe even the front.

Looks like both.

Just measured. My front from edge of tire to wheel well is 9.5" and rear is 10.5" with stock 265/70/17 tires. I have air bags in rear for towing but they are not inflated. I was going to level the front when my original tires were replaced but unfortunately I had a an unexpected blowout on the truck when pulling my toyhauler and simply replaced them all with stock when up in the mountains. I will level it and get a slightly taller/wider tire next time I hope. I hunt so the taller would help in that terrain and the extra width will help when I go to the sand dunes. I do not want to do too much since I tow a heavy trailer full of toys.

Might be different.

Just noticed, yours is two wheel drive. Mine is four wheel. I still think yours was lowered though

Nice Truck

What do you plan to use your truck for? Type of driving?

Front should be lower.

Front should be lower whether 2wd or 4wd for sure. On a 3/4 ton I would bet the overall clearance is the same for both. They are made to tow. You usually have to look at the front axle on most trucks to tell if a truck is a 4x4 when stock because they typically sit the same.
