i would have to say its less then 4". those tires look pretty big. are you sure there 33's? if they were 35's i would say you have 4" lift.

Rough Country makes a 3.25" lift...maybe that's what you got..just a guess though.

that question was kinda dumb. like mentioned before its probably 2-3" lift. get some flat fenders on that bad boy and youll have more room to flex.

based on the horrible uptravel in the back, it looks like an RC 2.5" lift with the wrong shocks. the shocks that were very stiff due to bottoming out on the slightest bump, eventually causing the shock mounts to rip off the axle. which also means you don't have near enough bumpstop front or rear and the 33s don't actually clear.

on the upside, looks like you have ZJ V8 tie-rod in front and maybe a 1" BL.

you'll need a welder to fix the terrible RC shock problem:

or just buy shorter shocks, or kill most of the uptravel with bumpstop extension.

read the links i posted.

you'll need a welder to fix the shock mounts in the rear, as outlined in the write up...or you'll need to buy new shocks. either way you need to extend the bumpstops front and rear.

in the rear you can rip the shock mounts off the axle or break the bar pins...just by driving it on the street. its gonna ride like crap too.

go with a set of Old Man Emu N67's. you'll need 1.5" rear bumpstop extensions. buy a set of 2" rear upper bumpstop extensions from Rubicon Express and cut 1/2" off them. you'll more than double the uptravel you have now and it will ride nicely.
