Anyone know these trucks?

I saw this pic from Powerstroke nation but they didn't have any info listed. My question is, how much lift do you think is on these trucks and what tire size do you think they may be running?

Thanks

The white one is Paul's of Complete performance

Was a f250 single wheel super cab.
He made it with a Dana 60 and sterling Dually rear axle with factory dually bed.
IIRC it has a 6" lift and 35s

The red one is his friends
Was a 2wd dually
They put a dana 60 front axle and 6" lift 37s

If I had to guess, I'd say 20" rims, 40" tires, and ~12" of lift.

And they're no longer 1-ton trucks--they're more prone to breaking things if worked (towing/hauling) to their original rated weight limits.

Huge fan of that truck, I've read a few posts about it. Didn't the frame bend or something?

It does flex due to excessive trailer tongue weight.
I took it to a frame shop to straighten it, but after they got it on the frame machine and set up, It came back true.

SO I brought it home and plated the inside of the frame to lessen the flexing.

Next up after putting it back to single wheel, is to get get rid of the 2500lbs tongue weight

Brad's truck was the reason I got the same steps for mine. I think I have them mounted a little lower than Brad does but making the truck easy to get into/out of for my Wife and kids was my priority. The fact that they bolt to the frame was an absolute prerequisite for me. Plus, in my opinion, the basic design of the mounts will have these collapse backwards or frontwards if they crunch onto something rather than upwards into the sheet metal.

Did something happen to the door? Or are you just taking off those huge towing mirrors?
