Default Please help identify this lift... if any

I have a 2001 ram 2500 single cab 4x4 long bed 360 gas. I just bought it few weeks ago. This is one of many vehicles i own, its perpuse is to get me out my house during floods and maybe little muddy fun here and there. I need to get some new suspension and im gonna go with 5" lift with 35s on it. I dont need to know much about how or what i need to lift but what i do need is to know is what i have now. I am very mechanicly incline and built many cars, most for racing though.

So here we go... again first one of these truck but it looks like rear is lifted and front is not. There is almost 5 inch deference in fender hieght measure at middle of each. Truck has a 5 inch block in rear then leaf springs and then bout inch spacer and another leaf. Front look pretty much stock, i dont see any spacers and all bars and linkage are stock. Only way i could see it having any front lift would be springs.... but again they look stock. I have pics im going to post of how it sits and leaf setup as well as front. I really think i just need a front 5 inch front lift. But im just not sure. Also i read there was a large block in rear stock from factory so not sure it is a lift or how much in the rear.

Front and block in the rear are stock. Not sure about the leaf pack, need someone with a 2500 to weigh in

So it sit that high in the ass end stock? There is 5" difference in fender heights. Do I just lift front With 5" lift... that should only give me little over 3" true lift right?

This also confuses me. This is supposed to be a 5" front 3" rear lift... it says replaces stock block with 5" block. Mine now is 5" block
