Help with lift indentification

Hey guys, I bought my truck with the lift already installed and by the looks of it, it has been on there for a while. I was wondering if you guys could help me identify the brand of the lift, I was told it is a 4". I crawled under there and looked around for a while but never saw a manufacturer on it. These are the only pics i have, i will get more once i get back from vacation.

That looks like its a 3 inch Pro-Comp lift on there. The previous owner painted the control arms and the coil springs to match the truck.

For a 4" lift, doesn't the lower control arm get replaced? And in some kits maybe both upper and lower? The pitman arm should be replaced also. And, I'm not an expert, does a 4" lift use spring spacers?
What was done to the rear suspention Peter?
Is there a body lift on this truck also?
Looking at pic #1, the wheel looks like an 8 lug wheel. Is your truck a 2500? If it is, I would have to say the lift is only a 2-3" lift.

Nope its a 5 lug, i wish it was an 8 lug. Its a 1500 and i dont think there is a body lift on it, although in that second pic it does look like it. On the rear it just looks like it has new springs, there are no blocks that i remember. Thanks for your guys' help.

Ok so what you're saying is that i have a stock front suspension with 3" spacers on the coils? Do you think he would have longer shocks installed? Also what about the rear, maybe just took springs from an off road?

hey, nice truck, I tryed to get my dad to buy a truck just like that one over thanksgiving, it even had the same tires. But I would say it's the Rancho 3" spor tlift kit, probably add-a-leaf. but the block looks just like my 2" LSD level kit block.

I am getting new wheels to go with my 35's. 16x8 rock crawlers with 4.25"(i think?) backspacing. I am pretty sure they will fit fine.

Its a 3'' rancho spacer. It isn't the sport kit becouse it dosen't have aftermarket arms. The sport kit had lower arms.

ok i went out and measured the rear block and it was 3". This means that i have to have a four inch lift up front but i cant tell what it is. It looks like the stock control arms though.

Just so you know the 3" block in the rear is standard from the factory on 1500 4wd. 2500's are 4.5" tall.
You have a 3" lift up front, not a 4"
