Default Is there a lift on my truck ?

My mudding tires on my truck are going bald. I bought the truck with these wheels on it so I don't know if there is a lift on this truck or not but I'm pretty sure it does. Judging by the look of the picture, about how high is this lift ? The tire size on all 4 tires are 31x10.5 R15.

​​​​​​​Ok another thing, I want to eventually buy big swamp mud tires, what is the biggest size (H&W) that will fit my truck ? Without them rubbing the side panel when I turn.

I found a guy selling some mud tires. Size is 3211.5 R15, which is basically an inch bigger all around except the rim size. Think these will work without any problems with alignment or steering ?

definitely has some sort of lift, but can't tell if it's body or suspension from that angle

can you take a photo from the front down low, maybe showing some of the front suspension?

From the picture it looks like it might have a body lift to me. It looks like there is a gap in the rear fender well between the body and the frame. Look at the body-mounts and see if there are hard plastic spacers?

That was my first thought too but I wasn't sure. Seems like there would be more frame showing under the center.

Definitely a body lift. The reason you can't see the frame very much is the nerf bars.

Looks to me like there is a body lift and small suspension lift. The tubular upper control arms look like something that would come with a 2.5" torsion bar lift to correct suspension geometry.

OK with that been said, right now and in the pic, the tire size is 31x11.5xr15. What is the biggest size (H&W) tire I can put on without any problems?
