What kind/size lift do I have?

Just bought my first ever Jeep ('11 Wrangler Unlimited) last week and it clearly has a lift, but I'm not sure what kind or what height - I'm 6' 3" and have to jump just a little to get inside. It's used, 17K miles, and the dealer had no idea and no documentation from the previous owner. My main concern is that the electronic stability has kicked in a couple times around curves and I was going maybe 30 MPH - after some research I see others with lifts that have similar problems and I'm afraid someone's going to identify what I have, and more importantly, what I DON'T have with the lift...hopefully nothing too major.
Took a few pics to assist - if there's a specific pic I need to post, let me know - I'm a noob to Jeep but I'm stoked to have one...finally!
Rims are KMC Rockstars, 20", tires are LT295/60/R20.
Thanks for any info you can provide.

Looks like basic Rough Country 2.5" coils and shocks.

2.5", 3 at the most. Make sure your steering wheel is centered.

Based on the parts I can see in your pics, its the 3.25in Rough Country lift, with rear track bar lift bracket, replacement rear sway bar links and original rears moved tot he front, 2 5in springs with 0.75in spacers.

Jeep JK Wrangler Suspension Lift

As for the ESP kicking in, yes, definately make sure the steering wheel is straight ahead when driving in a straight line, as the computer monitors steering wheel position as well as G forces left to right to determine if the computer needs to baby you and take control of you vehicle....

Thanks for the review gentlemen - at least I can tell people what it is when they ask now.
