Do I have a lift?

I have always assumed that my jeep was stock, just because, ya know. It was stock. right? well I feel like even with 31s, I have alot of spare room (even at full flex) so, I was thinking, what If I have a small BL or spacer?

Im a young jeep owner, and have never seen let alone installed any kind of lift yet. So What should I look for and where when trying to figure out if I have a Bl or spacer? I wouldnt be too happy if a bought a 1 inch body lift or spacer and went to install only to realise I already had it D:

Thanks for helping the noob

Look for other Jeeps in Parking Lots or at used car dealers and compare.
If you have spring spacers, they are easily seen on the tops of the coils springs.
Body lifts Looking at the back of the jeep, you will see how tall the body mounts are.

Thing is I dont even see that many jeeps where I live, especially tjs. the few are modded. so bad for comparison. Ill look for the spacers and BL at the body mounts, thanks

My jeep also looks alot lower in the back then front, and I thought tjs usually looked lower in the front then back or am I decieved.

Measure from the ground up to the bottom of the front bumper.
Stock should be around 18 1/4".
With the 31's might be around 19 ish...

Now that I look at it, I may have a spacer in my front and not my rear?

Every thing can most likely be answered if you can get some pictures bud.

1) picture of the top of the front coil spring.
2) take a picture of the body mounts under the door of the jeep.

With those we can tell you what is there bud.

.75 or what they say is a 1'' spacer in the front. Most likely installed to fix saggy front springs that happen to just about every jeep in time.

Can't see the body mounts.

thanks distorted! I guess that would explain why the front sets higher than the rear.

perfect....NO body lift. Factory there bud.

If you had any body lift there would be a gap between the frame and fender liner above the rear tire. You don't have any gap.


PS...nice ZJ spare wheel.
