Question Truck got a lift and don't know how much.

I was wondering how much lift I have on my truck. I know its a bit difficult to tell, but worth a shot. I know the truck came factory with 1.5 and whats on there is a littel more than that. It also has oversized tires.

'Stimulus' still needs another 1inch for the lift as the tires still rub a bit. and I have no one here to compare trucks with to tell the lift.

I will be able to take better photos in the morning, but these are what I have.

Is the truck 2wd or 4wd? Get under there and snap some pix of the suspension. It will be easy to tell once you give more info on what it has. Does it have blocks in the rear? How big are the blocks? Stock shocks and springs or aftermarket?

I'm think its just a stock sport, they were taller from the factory, the pic you have from the rear angle I can see its not a body lift, not sure on tire size but the way they fill the fender I want to say its stock height with 33's.

You may be correct. The tires are 33'' checked yesterday. Lift still uncertain about. Sport taller? How so? I know the 4x4 came with a 1.5'' the sport add more to it?

Well you have just thrown a curve ball. I am not all that familiar with the dodge line-up as my family has always owned chevy trucks or the ford diesel.
I am sure there is thread around here about the sport model vs standard 4x4/etc... ( I know the 5.9 2wd sport model was the old ss/t I believe, but that is as far as it goes.)
So if that is true that the sport stands a bit taller than that would explain why my truck seems to sit taller.
