Stupid Lift Question

I bought my jeep last year from a elder man that passed away and his brother just wanted to get rid of it. 2006 jeep wrangler x only 25K miles on it at the time. It has 31 10.5 r15 mud tires on custom rims. my question is, how would an un-educated person like myself know if it has already been lifted or not. i can't tell if the tires and rims make it look slightly taller than other stock jeeps, or if it has a small lift already installed.

thanks in advance. i'm loving the jeep by the way!!!

Post a pic.....Look at the shocks....if they arnt OEM then its lifted MOST LIKELY because it only has 25,000 miles they wouldnt be replaced yet.

You can also check if there are spacers installed.

Post a pic of the springs and shocks, as well as a pic of the Jeep. We should be able to tell then.

wifey has the camera and is out of town, i will get a pic asap, but i have 31's on it and looking around on the forum, looks like i have lots o space to put 33's on when i get new tires. looked at the paper that was put on the jeep when it was on the lot, and the jeep originally came with stock everything. so who knows. its been over a year and i don't know how to get in touch with the guy i bought it from to ask him.

on another note, the weather here in texas is great, (at least today, if you are from these parts you know what i'm talking about haha) and i'm about to go toppless!!!

If 31s aren't looking cramped in there, it's most likely lifted slightly with probably a budget boost.

It's got a Willy's body, a Chevy engine, Ford axles, GM transmission, and Dodge steering components... it must be a Wrangler.
