Is it lifted?

This is my 1997 Wrangler TJ 2.5l 4 cylinder running 33" tires. Could it run these stock or did the PO install a lift of some sort? It doesn't rub with sharp turns or scrape.

need pictures of the coils. Is the tub raised off the frame for a body lift? Those look way too stuffed in there to be safe.

I'll get pics of the coils asap..I play to get a Zone 4.25 in lift asap. Is it possible to run 33"s the way they are without any sort of lift?

I think it has a 2" budget boost. Look at the top of your springs and see if it has spacers.

Turn the wheels to the left or right all the way and take another picture of the entire coil by crouching by the corner of the front fender. That is a very good angle to see the suspension. I cannot tell anything from the current pictures other than those things are stuffed under there pretty tight :P Nice jeep! Also check for a body lift!

your pictures so far have been basically useless. posting pictures that actually show suspension components will yield better responses.

but based on the terrible pictures you've provided so far, it looks like the PO jammed some big tires on without any knowledge of suspension, or what makes things work.

Also... Those tires are very worn and probably measure closer to a large 31" tire.

I will get better pictures as soon as possible. Thank you for the (negative) input.

Yep all stock. Show a picture of the body mounts to see if you have a body lift.
