Clearance?????

I just bought a 98 wrangler with 32"x 11.5"xr15lt. I am wondering if i have enough clearance and not even sure if there has been any lifting done. At the 12 oclock position there is 4.25" of clearance between the wheel flare and the tire in the rear and 3.5 in the front. Is this enough and has it already been lifted? Thanks for all the help in advance.I will also be asking ?s about front bumper light mounting and wiring.

Toss up some pics! What size wheels? What back spacing? How tall from the ground to a point on the frame? How long are your coils?

no they dont rub on speed bumps but they did rub traversing a drainage ditch. Would a 1" or 2" budget boost do the trick?

Read my profile, I did a 2.25" Skyjacker budget boost lift kit if you're intersted in one. it was $229 with the hydro shocks from 4wheelcustoms Fabtech, skyjacker, rubicon express, bestop, truck tires, pro comp wheels or you could do just the spacers for leass, but the stock shocks restrict your extension.

You could toss a coil spacer on there for a little more clearance. All bumpstop extensions do is limit how far your tire can go up, they don't add any clearance.

Thank you all for your help. I am going to go with a 2" spacer lift for now.
