Default Lifted?

My truck sits 18-1/2" in the front and 19-1/2" in the rear, looks as if there are blocks on the rear axle but only coil springs on front... Is this Factory and stock or Aftermarket? Tires are 265/75/16

i don't really know much about 2nd gens, but it looks lifted to me, in the rear at least.

There is no body lift and I dont know if those block looking things are factory on the axles but there is only a 1" height difference in the rear? The blocks look like 3" so I dont think it is a suspension lift either...Factory height????? What is the best way to find out for sure?

I'm pretty sure they're factory lift blocks.

sono, I was doing a search on the exact topic and couldn't post pics of my truck but yours look exactly the same as mine. I don't think there is a lift in our truck, I also don't think it's the "OFF ROAD" package either. I'll keep trying to post my pics but, haven't had any luck...even after following the How-to section....

Thanks and yes, recently I found out it is bone stock factory even though it looks lifted ( most older rams I see around sit lower, possibly 2 wheel drives )
