how high is my lift - with pictures!

So here's some pics, let me know if it would be helpful for me to take some additional pics, just specify where you'd like to see.

again, the question here is how high is my lift and what kind is it! I had a dealer tell me it was a 2' body lift and another tell me that it was a suspension lift.

any help would be great

looks like a 2in budget boost and a inch body lift. Post pics from 20 feet away or so so we can see the entire vehicle too

Hmmm... Doesn't really look like a budget boost to me. The front springs look like they are on the factory puck.

It's all suspension lift (no body lift) and it kinda looks to be about 3".

That spacer between the tub is just the stock body rubber mounts.

yeah on the back...between the tub and the frame end (behind the bumper). Those are just the stock body mounts.
If it was a bodylift they would usually be something like aluminum, polyurethane, or some sort of composite plastic material.

Sorry if this is considered hijacking the thread, but I have the same exact issue. I bought mine used with a lift and I have no idea how much of a lift it has. Here are some pictures. The first pic is ground to side. The tires are 33". I can attach some zoomed out as well if that will help.

JTF80 = 4'' procomp system no questions. No body lift.

Jasonbwell =

No body lift. Just suspension.
Judging by the "control arms",Front trackbar bracket, drop pitman arm, springs, swaybarlinks, transfer case drop, and the shocks.......

4 inch rough country lift. Here is a pic of the setup as pieces.....



Is there any stickers or stamps "pressed into the shock" on any of the shocks?

Suspension provides ground clearance. It lifts the entire jeep.

The only thing body lifts are good for is to get that extra inch or so of tire clearance. All it does is lift the actual body of the jeep 1, 2, or 3 inches. Provides no ground clearance.
ex. if you have a 2 inch lift with 33" tires and you rub a little, you can throw in a 1 in body lift for the extra tire room.

Put it this way, don't go over a 1.25" body lift. If you want to run 33's easily, get a 2.5 suspension lift and a 1.25" BL. This will get you around 3.75" of lift and could cost as little as $400-$500 or as much as $1500 depending on what kits you use. To do a 4" suspension lift alone and take care of all the little issues that come with it (drivline vibes, steering stability/geometry, braking, etc) you're lookin at probably $1000 minimum and you're still running the same 33's...
