Some help please.

I am still a rookie jeeper and to 4x4 for that matter. I bought my 06 LJ uses from a dealer several months ago so I don't have contact with the PO. I have no idea what size lift I am running. I'm pretty sure I have to have a lift I just don't know what size. The tires I have on it are Remington 33/12.5/15. So I'm thinking it's a 3". If some one could tell be the best way to find out or point me in the right direction to find out I would very much appreciate it. I fell like a dumb @$$ when people ask me what size lift I have and I tell them I don't know. Thanks a lot guys.

Well it is somewhere between a 3 and 4 inch lift. I would guess closer to the 4. You also have the high clearence fenders. These allow for bigger tires with less lift. With fenders like that it looks like you could run 35" tires with no problem at all. BTW nice Jeep Now get ready to start spending money

Have fun

Looks like 2.5 to me and the flares are just cut. IMO you need to add some lift or at least make sure your properly bump stopped. Don't want to break anything.

Looks like at least 3.5 or 4". Has about the same clearance as my 4" with cut flares. Measure the ground to bumpers and I will measure mine to see if it is about the same if you want.

I still don't think it's a 4. 3 at the most. The cut flares really throw it off.

I will do that when I get home in the AM. I'm at work now and not around my jeep.

Man I thought I had a 3" lift on mine but after doing some measuring, I have a 4"suspension lift. I bought my jeep used and just assumed, but now I know!

I have always just assumed mine had a 3" but not knowing is driving me insane.

That would be at ride height or as it sits in the driveway.

Take a close look at ur suspension and read whatever company name is on it. Then look up the company and see what lifts they make. For example, my suspension lift is made by BDS

The suspension is a Rough Country. I fount this lift and it looks like the components that I have. If so it is a 3.5". I will do some measuring when I get home to my jeep.

Looks like a 3" lift. Mine are 16" like the previous chart says for a 4" lift.
