Question Measuring Lift

From where do you measure to the ground to determine lift? I measured from rocker panel to the ground and got 26.5". What is stock?

You would just need to measure a stock Jeep from any given point and compare it to yours after you lift it.

Mine is 28.25 inches.

I think he is looking to see if he has any type of lift. Anyone have a stock height to the rocker pannel? Mine is 23" with 33" tires and 3 inch BDS from the ground to the bottom of the tub right infront of the side step.

I was told to measure the gap between upper and lower spring perches in the front, 11" is stock, anything beyond that is the amount of spring lift you have. Way to many variables for a ground up measurement.
