How can i determine how many inches of lift the jeep got

didnt really measure prior to the install. its a parts and pieces lift that i scrounged up. it should be near 4 inches... but does any one know stock clearance measurements?
Its a 2003 TJ. it always sat on 31 in tires and still does, so i need to account for that.
anyone have measurements up to the body? or T-case? but i have about a 2 inch t-case drop.

measure the uptravel travel distance inside the spring perches, from the spring pad to the bottom of the bumpstop cup. excluding the bumpstop extensions you should have installed for the longer shocks.

Only way to tell for sure how many inches you got is to measure from the axle tube up to the frame, then get someone with stock jeep to do same and compare.
Any other measurements will include tires or a variable.

I was told, or read it that stock is 12in in front and 8 in the rear.
I just installed 4in springs yesterday and have 17 in front now. (spring perch to spring perch)
