Identifying lift type and height.

Is there a way to identify how much lift is on a jeep without knowing exactly what was put on originally? I bought a '01 TJ with lift and large tires and I have no clue what size lift I have.

yes, you can take measurements.

you're the only one who can see the Jeep right now, so the burden is on you.

If there is no body lift I'd say that is a 4".

X2 3.5" or 4" lift if no body lift. Post a pic of springs and control arms and we can tell you company.
