Bought lifted 06, help with size

Hello all, Been lurking for a while, love the site!!!

I have a quick question. I bought my 2nd Powerstroke in 2012. (Love them)

I have a lifted 06 F-250. It has 35's on it now, but I think I can squeeze some 37's under it. Its not an exteme offroad truck, just the occasional pasture ride to repair fence or haul out hay. I have attatched pics. I took a measurement from the front arm where it mounts to the frame (pic) and compared to another "06" it seems to be a 5" difference. I would like a better idea of what size lift I have.

Also the pic with the wheel turned is the closest point between tire and flare. Its about 2" between.

Thanks

normally I would say no friggin way would I put 37's on a 6 inch and still use your truck like a truck
but you appear to have cut out fenders and an aftermarket bumper with great clearance

Zmann-My fenders have not been cut as I know of. The only concern I would have is the tire hitting the fender flare near the rear of the fender. The front has plenty of room.

Huck2080- I can take more pics tomorrow. The rear block is 5". But I don't know if the springs are stock.

I agree that's a 6" lift. I actually had 38/15.50/18 on my 6" lift with 4.5" back spacing. It was so close that I went up to a 7" lift.
My advice is going to be: Lose the drop down brackets and get yourself some quality radius arms and either ICon or Pure Performance coil springs under it. Truck will handle and rjide much better.
Yea put as wide as you can 37" tires.
