How Can I tell if my jeep is lifted!?
 
2 Attachment(s)
I know i know.. its a dump stupid question, but believe it or not, I dont know if my jeep has lift kit on it or not.. I only have these pics right now from the outside and i'm planning on installing 33's tire on my jeep.. that's why I need to know if I need lift kit to be installed or not.

Can you tell by looking at the pic if my jeep is lifted?.. sorry guys & thanks for the help!

I'd guess that it's not.

PStov98TJ 05-03-2013 02:54 PM

Yeah there's no lift on that. Do some research on running 33's properly before you just lift and buy tires. It's more than just springs, shocks, and cool tires

X2 doesnt appear to be.

Looks stock, but post a pic of the front spring to see if it has a small BB installed.

X2 don't just get the cheapest lift or a 3 in body lift learn how the suspension works and how it's affected by lifting it. Then look at different lifts and components in each to decide on a good one and how much lift you wanna run.

Ya and don't just buy the cheapest lift or a 3 inch body lift. Learn how the suspension works and how it's affected by a lift. Then look at the components in each lift kit and decide which one and how much lift you wanna run

apaTJ 05-03-2013 03:07 PM

Sorry didn't mean to post twice

Nope, no lift, theres a ton of info in this forum, you must take care of a few thing before 33's, first is a lift I recommnend you to do things right from the begginning and buy a nice lift, with good reviews. Also check your gearing, cause you may feel a decrease of power with the 33's and stock gears.

RedSurveyor 05-09-2013 10:40 PM

X2 on the gearing. Good luck and remember Jeep are for fun. So have some!

I'm kinda having the same issue as the original poster. I just got a new to me 04 TJ X. It has 33x12.5x15 tires on it that need replacing. I'm not sure if it was lifted prior to me. I know there is no BB on it, and in inspecting that I noticed that the bumper stops were falling apart. I measured the front coils, but couldn't get a great measurement. So I guess i'm asking "Do I need more lift for the present tire size?" I'm going to be replacing the bumper stops, so should I do an upgrade while I'm at it? I went on some trails and was happy with its performance. Thanks for the advice.

Wouldn't it be easier to do the lift, if necessary, than getting all new rims and tires?

Jessay 07-16-2014 08:15 PM

I actually have the same question as poster but I'd rather no what to look for rather than post a picture of my springs. Can anybody post a picture of what your looking in a lifted jeep? Possibly next to one that isn't? I want to be able to walk up to a random jeep and peek and see for myself haha

Majnoon 07-16-2014 08:20 PM

12" high springs with no spacers your stock in front. 8" high springs no spacers rear is stock height. Spacers are usually an inch and a half or so and poly or metal. You will know them if you see um. Just add length to spring. So get your tape out and you will know your answer without posting pics. :)
