What kind of lift do you think I have???? (pictures)
 
When I bought my jeep a month ago the dealer couldn't tell me exactly what kind of lift my jeep has. So I come to you asking what kind of lift is on it?? It has 33x12.50x15's on it and the spacers in the front measure 3" tall. Are those BL spacers in the rear above the bumper? Also the dealer painted everything black to make it look good so colors may be different that when they were installed.

The front is slightly down hill in this pic if that makes a differance

Nah, doesn't look like you have any body lift on there at all. Stock pucks from what I can tell. All of your lift seems to be coming from the spring spacers that you have shown. The coils look OEM to me. Looks like you could have extended sway bar links also, but I could be wrong (Been so long since I've messed with stock ones). Trac-Bar looks stock and from the couple pics the shocks look OEM to me also.

no bodylift....looks like you just have spring spacers and thats it to me.

Do 3" spacers make for a 3" lift?

Look like a big ass spacer lift to me. :D

I don't know anyone that makes a 3" though. :confused:

Yes that does make for 3" of lift. It move the seating point of your coils down by however thick the springs are. The only thing with your setup that I don't see is longer shocks. Don't know if you have a rough ride, but this could be a cause of that. You'd probably be much happier if you bought some shocks that were designed for a 3" lift.

Remember that there is a 1" puck at teh top of the front springs from the factory.

I did not have a 1" puck from the factory on mine. Only a 1/2" insulator.

Looks pretty close to this budget boost here.

no body lift just suspension.

Darton 12-20-2007 10:14 PM

OK so what kind of shocks should I get since it's most likely got the stock shocks on it now? Or should I wait and just get shocks when I get a lift within the next year?

mrbigjeep 12-20-2007 10:18 PM

i think if your doin alright with the stock shocks now then you'll be OK to wait until you get your new lift.

It does look like that except the spacers on my jeep are red they were spraypainted black in the front by the dealer but the rears and the side in the front unreachable by the spraycan is red.

it looks like an older 3" spacer lift from rocky road.

btw i have 2.5" spacers in the front on top of 2.5" HD OME springs.

GrnTJ 12-21-2007 09:01 AM

It is a 3" spacer lift and no body lift at all. You dont have any aftermarket steering or shocks but you really dont need it with a set up like that either. Wait on buying new shocks until you go and purchase a new lift for it. At that point get yourself some new shocks but not right now.

yep that is a fact. Thats the only BB I knew of with that spacer design. Most are a solid spacer. Levinoss had a set of suspension levelers that were red and looked like that but the brand escapes me at the moment.
