Help with identifying my lift.....thanks
 
So like the title says I need help identifying my lift. Looked over the previous post and most can be identified by serial numbers but i can't find any numbers.
thanks for the help in advance:

Bump for a sunny day :whistling:

That's a stock number
Nothing on the shocks ?

looks a number of companies than have sold bottom shelf stuff. just be glad whoever installed it knew enough to leave the drop pitman arm off.

the poly bushing fixed length control arms are crap, and can rip your control arm mounts off.
there's no bumpstop extensions, so the shocks are definitely bottoming out.
and it probably rides rougher than it should with those low end shocks.
looks like stock brake lines, and those aren't long enough for the lift height.
there's also a t-case drop, which is a band-aid fix for driveline changes associated with lifts.

this kind of low end kit is pretty common in the used vehicle market, because the owner lifts the Jeep through a shop selling them hook-line-and-sinker, but the owner ultimately gets tired of the thing driving like crap. to do it right, it all needs to come off and be replaced with better parts...luckily the springs are probably salvageable...albeit a minor part of the cost of the proper parts.

that help?

How much lift does it have?

Based off of the bent short control arms (lowers only, stock uppers), Poly Bushings, bent sway bar links, and white shocks. I would guess it is a Pro Comp lift. That is simply my guess though. I would look around your jeep to see if there are any decals under the hood or somewhere. Mine had a BDS Decal under the hood and helped me confirm that mine was a BDS Lift.

Shocks look like the pro comps I pulled off my TJ. Don't know about control arms as mine had stock.

No stickers anywhere on the jeep.
