Lift and tire size?

Hi I have a 2001 F350, it has 315/75/16's, I bought it with the lift already, and I'm wondering what size lift it could be. I'm thinking it's a 4 inch, but not sure, and not sure of the brand of lift. My question is if it is a 6 inch will 37's fit? And with a 4 inch would 35's (315/75/16's) fit?

I'm currently not in the states, where the truck is located, I'm in Japan. So thats why I don't know too many details.

35's or 315/75/16 will fit with a 4" lift. 37's will fit on a 6" lift. The best way for help on this would be to post up some pics of the truck. Judging by the stance and with the correct tire size that is on it, we can probably tell you what size lift. Pictures are a huge help. Some others will chime in, measurements will prolly work too, but not sure.

Thank you, I'll try to get some good pics and post them up.
I posted pics in my gallery, hope they can help. My father told me the guy said something bout it being a 4 inch lift, but I don't know.

Lzarnch, judging by the pics in your gallery it looks like a 6" with 35's or maybe if it's a 4" lift, the tires are a smaller size. Looks like alot of room in the wheelwell with those tires and 35's will fill up the wheelwell more with only a 4" lift

What is stock height???

Take a look here, Dan has a measurement of stock reference points for leaf sprung trucks.

Once I get to see my baby again I'll finally be able to put it to rest if mine sits 6" or 8" higher than OEM. I'm leanin towards 6" but all I know is the outcome will be IT NEEDS MORE LIFT!! When will it ever end?? These things are way too addicting.

Stock sucks

thanks for all the help guys.
92F250SD7.3, it has 315's for sure, the gap does look kinda big for 35's, so maybe it is a six, ill have to measure.
Ironmover, when i get back home ill be sure to do some measuring and see whats the deal. stock is around 7.5in so ill keep that in mind.
GregsSD, it does look a lil taller than your truck, so it might be a 6in., thanks for posting the pics to compare.

Just got my truck
Now I have to wait to get home to it, and start the process.
