Couldn't you measure the front spindle or a rear lift block on the rear axle

Can you see a brand name or anything on there? Maybe what the upgraded components are? I am not too familiar with a TTB suspension.

If it's the truck in the picture, i'd say you have 6'' lift. My brother's 92 looks same height as yours and he's right at 6".

Another way to be to find the specs for the stock height. Factor in the change of tire size also, and you'd know for sure if it's 6".

if its a TTB system just measure the coil... grantid it maybe compressed about an 1" or 1 1/2" if its an ext. cab. Also you can measure the drop bracket or tell us what size tire he is running... cause a 4" can fit a 33" tire but its REALLY TIGHT!

well if its running 33s without being tight i'd say its a 6" in for sure then. Cause i've got a 4" but i'd be rubbing the back of the fender if i ran 33s.
