HELP: Need Help on How to Identify Lift

Like the title says, I need help trying to figure out which brand lift I have. I just got my jeep like a month ago. The previous owner only owned it for a short time and the owner before him installed the lift (2 owners ago). The last guy said it was possibly a rancho 3.5". I do know it had a red rear sway bar link bracket ( just had the whole jeep undercoated a few weeks ago). I would have accepted it was a rancho, but what threw me off is it has sky jacker front sway bar disconnects. Since both manufactures use "red" parts I am unsure. Does any one know if they stamp any parts or how to identify a particular manufacture from another? Probably a long shot but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

He's not afraid to voice his opinion. You get used to it after a while. He should go voice his opinion on the dude that said the LJ is ugly and doesn't look like a jeep a couple threads down from here. That would be entertaining.
