New owner with lifted JK

I am trying to figure out how high of of lift the previous owner but on. It look like they just changed the springs (they are red) and shocks (they are white no name)? Tires are MT Baja MTL size LT315/17 70R17

well if i am correct 315's are close to 35's so I would say maybe a 3" kit but most 3 do not fit that size so I would say 4 to 6......

315 is not a tire size. Its the width of the tread in mm from edge to edge. The next number is the percent of the first number

Example: 265 - about 10"

So a 265 75 r15 is ten inches wide with a 7.5" side wall and the last number is the rim dia.

So 10" wide + 7.5" side wall (x2) + 15" rim gives you a 30" x 10" tire size.


Change the second number to 50 and you now have a 25" tire with 10" width

Beermonkey,
Wow, wheels look great, look like OEM but black.....Are they just painted? What make/model of rims are those?
Do you like your stubby bumper? What kind are you running?
Great Rescue Green too...
Thanks,
Andy
