Lift or No Lift

That is the question...... Miss Nieve here again. How do I know if I have a lift or not?I read in another thread about the shifting problem and popping out of gear. I have that problem sometimes. Wondering if there is a lift on mine. I know that I have 33x12.5 on it but that just cause I read it. I will post the pics that I took as soon as I can locate the cord for my dig cam!!! Is there any other way to tell.

I have 33X12.5 tires with a 3 inch lift. I would you assume that would have some sort of lift. If not, there must be little to no room between your tires and fenders.

As far as I know, you'd have to have a lift to fit 33's. I believe 31's are the max without a lift. Maybe 32's if you keep it on the street. Take a look under the front wheel wells. If you have little red or black plastic pucks on top of your shocks, then you have a lift. I just measured my stock X model, and the distance from the ground to the bottom of the front bumper is 17". The distance from the ground to the bottom of the front flare is 32". I'm running no lift and 235/75R15 tires. Hope this helps!

if your 33s dotn rub ... then you have a lift. i run 33s with no lift and my fenders are beat to hell from the inside out .... and they actually are the limiting factor on the compression of the suspension lol

could be a body lift too, doesn't necessarily have to be pucks on top of the shocks.
