Whats does I got?!

Alright. When I bought my jeep, the P.O said he put a budget boost on it. 2 inches. I'm looking under there and I dont see me any blocks! Can someone help identify if I have a spring or spacer lift?

Also, pic attached as well are my trackbar bushings. They look bad, yes? new trackbar is on the way.

Ps, couldnt leave a pic of my pretty baby out!

You gots a spring lift. The puck on top of the front springs is an isolator, not a spacer.

Def. no BB on there.

...and please Re-Do the Wiring that is Wrapped around the Sway Bar. You could Rip that Very Easily it Looks like.

That's the temp wiring for the lights! Was going camping a week or 2 ago and needed to get those lights wired quick. That was next on my list.

So, I could add some spacers to get another easy 2 inches of lift? If so, SWEET!

Yep, you can Add a 2" Spacer Lift.

But then you'll prob. need Longer Shocks and a few other Parts.

Actually adding 2" spacers to lifted springs isn't recommend, it can cause coil bind that can damage the springs. It makes sense, I've never seen a 4" lift sold by any mfgr that had 2" springs combined with 2" spacers... If you want to lift it 4"s the right way, either buy a 4" kit or do a 3" with a 1.25" body lift/ motor mount lift. Other areas to address to do a 4" suspension only lift the right way that aren't always included in kits are... IMO: adjustable front trac bar, rear trac bar bracket (or an adjustable bar), adjustable upper rear control arms to correct the pinion angle, longer front and rear lower control arms( they are usually include in kits), longer shocks (as stated above), SYE and CV driveshaft, extended swaybar links front and rear.
You may get lucky and avoid vibes with a t-case drop but you'll lose ground clearance, so what's the point. I think that's about it, I hope I didn't leave out anything.
