    I'm thinking either 4 or 6 inches. 87 1/2 ton GMC sitting on 35x12.50. I know those 35's look tiny in the pic.

    This is what my truck looks like with a 4" lift and 35's. I am running 33's right now cause the 35's wore out, but I plan on going 37's soon with the same lift. I have minor fender trimming and will most likely do more later.

    They are Mud Kings. I'd guess they measure pretty close by looking at them in person. Next time I see it I'll measure them.

    Does it have rear lift blocks, or an add-a-leaf? If just blocks,that height should be your lift height.

    I'm guessing 4" lift, especially if it has 16.5" wheels.

    To answer a few questions. It has blocks in the rear. Pretty big blocks. Shackles are all stock. The 35's are on 15" wheels. If the lift is probably how ever big my blocks are then I'm guessing it's a 4 inch. I didn't think 35's would fit so nice with a 4". If it was at my place I'd look at it but it's not.

    I'd guess 4".. the distance from the hubs to the bottom of the rocker panels doesn't look and more than my 85 on a 4". Those also look like 15x8 wheels, 35x12.50s will look smaller on those vs. a 15x10
