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.

Yeah looks an inch higher in the back or it's some rubi shocks on a sport hard to say.

Maybe like a 2 inch Budget boost

Thanks, some one told me it was stock, but it looked like there was way too much space between the fenders and the tires.

Yeah did you just buy it or something?

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?

take a picture of the top of your spring. that thing has some serious rake to it. id recommend adding a bigger spacer in front.

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.

Here's what I came up with from your pics.
First the tires, 285's are a metric 33''
If they were stock spring they should have the factory tag on them, but they have been known to come off.
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?

Shocks will not affect height.

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.

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

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.
