Question Do I have a lift?

I bought my YJ with these 32x12.50's and they seem to be clearing very well. I didnt ask the seller if it was lifted and he is out of contact now.

Can anyone tell me if they think this thing is lifted?

Yup, looks like it to me. Probably a 2-3" lift. YJ stock springs are flat.

Yep. Springs have a nice arch, and it looks like you've got some shackle lift going on also.

Stock shackle bolts are 4" on center. Yours are probably 5 1/4" (5/8" of lift) or 6" (1" of lift) and it looks to me you've got a 2 1/2" or 3" suspension lift.

You can also calculate to the rocker panels. Stock height is 18" with 205/75/15 or 215/75/15 tires, which I just figure to be 27 1/2" when I figure heights.

So, 32" tires are 4 1/2" bigger, which nets 2 1/4" lift. Figure out which shackles you have and add that lift to the equation, add 18" and that is your base number. Measure the rocker height, subtract the base number, and that will give you your suspension lift height.

I don't mean to steal the thread, but if I have a 2 1/2 lift with springs and stock shackles, I can lift it another inch or so with shackles?

Those appear to be stock shackles considering how short they are.

Looks like a 3" or so lift. Your spring have a nice positive arch. YOu can fit 32's on a stock YJ, but it doesn't look like that.It looks like this

See what company shocks you have on the front. Get the part number off the shock and find a 4 wheel part store and give them the number. It worked for me.
