Questions about the jeep.

So i traded my 2003 toyota tundra to my dad for a 1997 jeep wrangler and i been reading and reading finally got the mod bug. I think i have a Dana30/35 it was suppose to have a suspension lift and body lift when my dad purchased it about a week before we traded but when i crawled under it it didnt look right. So my question is can someone tell me everything you can tell about my suspension and axles from the photos provided. Thanks to anyone who replies.

Looks like you have either a 2" or 3" budget boost and a 1" or 2" body lift. Measure those pucks that are on top of your front coil springs.

Edit: Also, how bout one of the entire Jeep in the pic for us to check out?

x2 on the 2" budget boost and 1" body lift.

I must say that as soon as I saw those pics upside down, my first thought was OH SNAP!!! THAT HAD TO SUCK!!! Then I saw where the concrete was.

More questions

Ok so I'll post more pictures once I get home but I was wondering how the zone 4 inch lift was or if I should just save up and get a rubicon express kit. I was wondering if either lifts shocks that came with them were worth it or if I should go ahead and buy some better ones and which ones do y'all prefer.

SYE and Driveshaft

So I looked into the 4inch rough country and the 6 inch rough country long arm kits. So which would y'all recommend and I figure I need a SYE and new shaft so do y'all recommend ordering from rough country or from Tom Wood (I think that's what it was don't kill me if I got it wrong). I would also like some input on axles I figure in the rear I would upgrade to a Dana 44 with 4.56 gears and Detroit lockers and on the front a Dana 44 with 4.56 gears detroit locker and warn locking hubs. If I understood previous post right a warn locking hub disengages the axles so that they do not spin when not locked in or should i just run a Detroit without warn hubs? I don't see any ice or snow so what y'all think? Any input is helpful and I greatly appreciate all the help y'all have been giving.
