what size lift is this?

Im new to this site. Just recently bought an 05 F350 CCSB. I am running 41" iroks. I have been searching this site like crazy to find out the measurement from the center of the front hub to the top of the fender well on a stock height truck. I have found a lot of old threads asking for this info but havent seen anybody actually answer the question. Can somebody help me out so I can figure out what size lift I have?

Given your flares, I would take measurements from say the axle to the frame and compare that to another 05~07 with a known lift. I wouldn't advise measuring against a stock truck because the rate of sag could make your lift look taller than it really is. Considering the angle of those rear leafs and the tire size, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a 10" lift.

Thanks for the reply. I was beginning to wonder if anybody was going to answer. I can do a measurement from the frame to axle but I need someone to give me a measurement on a stoke truck so I can figure out the difference.

With a 4" lift spring on the rear of my truck, I am 14.75" from the top of the axle tube to the bottom of the frame. I was all focused on the front end earlier but didn't want to measure because my front lift isn't exactly "out of the box".
