Welcome 1st and foremost!

Where do you want the measurement taken? From the roof, top of the hood, rocker panel.........??????

2001 F350 CC SWB 6spd....currently getting a complete 'makeover'. Stay tuned.

Approx. 33" tires stock usually (285/16s), going to 40" tires means 7"s taller divided in half so 3.5" from the tires alone (1" taller of tire adds 1/2" height to the truck, 1/2" more ground clearance). Add another 10" for suspension height, so my guess would be 13.5" taller from where its sitting now assuming it all goes as planned. Could be more or less depending on the springs used, brand of tires (not all 40" tires measure a true 40"s!!), ect. Hope that helps. LR

If you want to get used to the extra height, maybe try attaching a 14" high box (or anything else easily collapsible) to the roof of your truck and drive around, and see how long it last until you knock it off! Maybe a few cheap 'oops' might save you redoing your roof!! LR
