i think my TJ's already lifted..

Like i said in other threads, i bought my tj used and i realized that the tires that came on are 31's...does the stock suspension fit those kind of tires or is it lifted?

Yes 31s fit a stock suspension. Post a picture and we can tell you if it is lifted

31s will fit on a stocker. Often times if that is the case though, they will rub at full lock. If they dont rub, it probably has some backspacing or has a small lift. Again, a pic is worth a thousand words.

I've run 31's on my stock TJ for over a year and have never had any rubbing with them. Because they are larger than the stock tires, they do give the appearance of a small lift. More than likely the PO put the 31's on because that was as large as he could go without a lift or backspacing.

Most likely stock, if you want take a picture of the shock absorbers or check to see if you have spacers. But that's probably stock.

Yeah you could do that, but if you only want a little bit of lift just get a body lift, it's cheaper, keeps the center of grav low and it doesnt put as much stress on the suspension

If you're going to spend the $ for a lift kit, just get the one you want in the first place. Adding spacers will just shorten the shock travel, and all the other problems that come with bigger lifts will still be present.

Def looks like it is stock. I have the exact tires and thats how mine looked before I put my lift on. I put on the Rough Country 3.25" lift and really like it. Thats a 2.5" coil lift and .75" spacer.

As others have said, it looks stock. I ran 32 x 11.50s (the actual od was only 31.5) on mine when it was stock suspension. It had a little rub when flexed. It looks like you could run a small spacer up front to level it out.

Mine 99 is stock with 31x10.50's on it, looks the same as far as clearance.
