Don't laugh..
 
How can I tell if my Jeep has any kind of lift installed ?
It looks like it may have a small one but I'm not sure.

Do you need a stool to get into it?

Unfortunately I have the same issue. I can see what looks to be 1 inch body spacers, but can't tell if I have an after market suspension lift. My TJ has Bilstien shocks but no markings on the springs. I'm also on 32's so that could be it as well. I just have no idea how/what to check for.

Post pics of your front springs and a side shot of your TJ....usually we can tell if it has something other than stock.

Ok, I will take a few pictures this afternoon when I get home.

From one newbie to another, I've had a stock CJ7, FJ40, lifted Ford Ranger 4X4, lifted 95 Jimmy and now, just bought an 06 Unlimited which I was sure was lifted but wasn't sure because I wasn't seeing what I was accustomed to seeing. Took mine to a local 4X4 shop and was informed that "yes, I had 2" lift spacers in the coils, which was why my 32" tires fit". OK, helped me understand that, no, I did not have a body lift, and no didn't have a "suspension lift" technically speaking. Coil lift spacers are the least costly way to get clearance.

Also referred to as a budget boost or BB.
