Looks like it has a leveling kit. Look on top of the spring in front to see if there is a spacer on top of the coil. If you want anymore lift, getting bigger tires can help get it further off the ground, and improve the look. Or a body lift if that's your thing.

I thought about the tires but it looks like I only have an inch of clearance when I turn the wheel idk if I could fit more tire was the max size for these trucks?

yep you have a spacer up front to level it out. I have a level on my 05 and you should be able to fit 34" tires with minor trimming of the bumper valence.
