Lift height?

It looks like the PO put some kind of lift on my 03 Sahara I thought it seemed a little bigger than stock and my neighbor who has a lifted tj pretty much confirmed my suspicions. The only thing is I'm not sure how much of a lift it is and if it's a BL or SL. I can't see any after market parts at all. It's probably no bigger than 1.75-3".

Is there some stock vs lift height measurements I can go off of to find out?

what should I use as my points of measurement?

I'm going to be upgrading to 33's in the near future so I'm trying to figure out if this will be compatible with new lift or maybe save me a step.

Thanks for any help

Post some pics of your front/rear coils and shocks and control arms and sway bar links as well as in between the frame and your jeep(the body mounts) (below door would be easy).
This will help us identify just what you have or at least get extremely close.

Pics of the rear of the tub where the body meets the frame would help also

I don't know if I can't get pics anytime soon. I don't have access to a garage right now and the street here is covered with snow so I really can't get under the jeep. I guess I could try

As mentioned above, Measure the front spring height to determine the amount of suspension lift...stock front springs are about 12" at ride height so anything additional is lift height. Be aware also that you may have a budget boost which is a puck sitting on top of stock springs (usually 1.75"-2").

A good place to check for a body lift is right inside a rear tire where if there is no lift, the tub appears to be sitting right on the frame. Any gap there would be the amount of body lift.

All I could get to right now was was the front coil springs and they measure 12" exactly and the space between the tub and frame at the rear tire seems to about .5"
