What body lift does my TJ have?

Hello! Please bear with a total noob. I've just had my wrangler for two weeks and I'm still learning as much as someone who has no one mechanically inclined around them is able to do!

I was told that the wrangler is lifted, and after much research, I have concluded that it's probably just a body lift. The guy who sold me the car was very difficult unfortunately, because I am a female I eventually just asked my brother in law to handle it because it was so aggravating dealing with the guy and my brother in law didn't think to ask what kind of lift the wrangler has.

It's a 2005 sahara. I measured the front springs and they're 12". So they are stock according to a chart I saw floating around, which lead me to the conclusion that it's a body lift. The big spacer block between the spring and the body is 3", and the space between the step and the body is about 1". There are also smaller blocks between my rear bumper and the frame that are about 1". I have 31" wheels.

So help? Please? I have all these measurements but I don't know what they mean in conclusion!

Pics included in case they make things easier.

It looks like a 2" Budget Boost or Coil Spacer lift. The rubber bushing that you see in the rear under the body is just a body mount bushing.

I agree with cru9, if you decide to keep it that way you should check into adding some shocks designed for a lift. This will definitely make it ride better.

Agreed you only have a BB. Budget boost. No body lift. Where do you live where u got the aerodynamic front bumper guard? I've only seen those on european models.

Thank you for the info!

I will look into those shocks as I do like how it looks right now! Thank you for the advice!

EdjonesJeeper, the wrangler was manufactured in the USA, bought in Dubai, brought by its owner to Jordan where I aquired it. It's seen a lot of desert.

You have a 3" spacer lift, no body lift. Can you post a shot of the front of the jeep looking at the suspenion. You might need a front adjustable track bar with that much of a spacer.
