I was wondering what is the easiest way to tell how much lift you have on a jeep. The PO did not know how much was on there when I bought it. Is there an easy way of telling? It is SUA and I am running 33's on it right now.

How long are the shackles? Stock ones are 4in center hole to center hole. For every 2in longer then that gives you 1in lift. Does it have a body lift? Pics would help. Normaly and I wrong as I don't deal with sua lifts is. 4 in sua with either 1in body lift or shackle will give you the lift you need to clear 33s

a 3.5'' will fit 33s, 4'' is the most common, or a 2.5'' spring with shackles and a small body lift
I never get stuck, just momentarly delayed
