I have a 1999 F350 7.3 that was given to me, but I'm trying to figure out all has been done to it. It was given to me by an old family friend who owned it 10 years was the second owner, but he isn't really a truck/car guy. I know the first owner installed a Banks Six Gun tuner, a 4" exhaust, and a lift, but that's where my knowledge of changes ends. I'm trying to figure out what size lift it has, among any other changes / upgrades. If you look at my garage photos you can get an idea of the size. I'm six foot and the front fender by the tire comes up to my chin.

Measure from the center of the hub to the top of the wheel arch. Report your findings and we can give you a rough idea of what your lift is. You can also look for blocks under the leaf springs. The factory set up has none under the front suspension. It varys on the rear leaf springs by what model truck you have 250/350

Thanks for the reply. I checked and there are no lift blocks for the front springs, but measurement for the center of the hub to top of the wheel arch is approx. 29 1/2" - 30", so yan7gin if you have 28" with a 4' lift, this truck must have a 6" lift.

It does have a boaty feel, and I've driven countless one ton trucks, but this one can beat you to death!! I would love to to do the 05 suspension swap I've seen others have done and convert it to coil springs.

It's a F350 and I checked and there are no lift blocks for the front springs, but the measurement from the center of the hub to top of the wheel arch is approx. 29 1/2" - 30". It has 235/85R16 tires where are almost 32" and they look tiny.
