Need help to ID size and type of lift

I bought a TJ second hand. Owned a TJ for years, but never with a lift, so itís all new to me. She rides very rough, so I bough Rancho 9000s for her, but am now concerned that I donít have the 4.5Ē lift I was told I had when I bought it. On the phone, RE said I had ďsomeĒ of their parts. Three of the RE shocks that came on it bottomed out, and one is leaking oil, so Iím wondering if I do have a 3.5Ē and thatís what ruined the original ones? Also, how can I tell if there is a body lift installed? Iíve included some photos to see if that might help. Again, Iím a newbie with lifts, so go easy on me, and let me know if you see anything that I should be concerned with from the photos, and if you think it might be safe to put on these Ranchos. Thanks.

If you dont have a body lift your back bumper should look like this just a very small space anything more and you might have a body lift

The third picture looks like a body lift puck.

X2. There is definitely a body lift on there. Just measure the puck, but it looks like it's about 1 inch.

RE 3.5" lift
JKS 1.25'' body lift.
And you also have a 3/4'' spacer up front.

You definitely need to make sure which lift you have before you put the shocks on. You want to make sure you have the correct shocks for your lift and if your shocks are bottoming out, your shocks or bumpstops are incorrect length.(incorrect bumpstops likely by the pics)
