ljrubitm What you need to do is find a stock JK, with the stock 255's on them, park next to it , and start looking at the two.

That's what i'm saying. Almost like the rear springs aren't stock and the front are with a bb.

daggo66 Those tires are 32.7". It looks like you have a 2" spacer in the front, but I don't see one in the rear. Those tires only require less than 1/2" clearance over stock.

Shocks will not affect height.

The space between the bump stop looks to much for stock.
So to me ( And I've been wrong before ) It looks like 2''spring with a spacer up front to level it out. I don't think by installing a space up front only on stock springs can give clearance like that for 33's. But like I said,I've been wrong before.
I agree that there is a lot of clearance for the 33's to fit under there. Do you know of any solid place I can measure to compare vs a stock measurement to find out?

I was strongly considering lifting it sooner than later. But here is a pic of the front and rear spring. I think the picture makes it look like there is more rake than it has.

Destal I've had it for about a two weeks now. The dealer put the tires and rims on and he couldn't tell me if it had a lift, so I asked the shop that put the wheels on and he told me it was completely stock.

Is there a good place to measure how much height has been added?

Destal Kind of an embarrassing question to ask, but does this look stock height? If not any guess how much bigger it is? Tires are 285/70R17's.
