My New 07 Jeep
 
Here is a pic of my new jeep--I hope it is attached. I bought it last week. Anyway I have posted a few questions on here already and have had some great answers. I know everyone wants to see everything so here it is.

I am wondering if my jeep has a lift or not? How can I tell? It has 15 inch wheels on it and 33x12.50 tires on it. The salesman said it had a 4 inch lift on it, but I want to know what you guys think. Let me know.

Also what issues should I look for with it--i noticed a rattle in the exhaust tonight--I think I have a 90 day warranty, so any issues that you can give me a heads up on would be great.

kevinss2001 06-28-2010 10:35 PM

ok the pic did not load, so if anyone can help me with that too that would be great--it is on my desktop and every time I try to attach it is says that the file failed???

ok it looks like I have a link, but it will not post a pic--let me know what you think.

It's hard to tell if it has a lift or not. If those are 33" tires it is definitely not a 4" lift.

I can't tell by that pic. I want to say it is indeed lifted, but how much I'm unsure.

what's the tire size on the sidewall?

post a pic of the springs, and shocks. It looks like 33's with a budget boost to my eyes. that why I want to see the springs and shocks.

jcf 06-30-2010 09:10 AM

I'm thinking a 2 to 3 inch if anything. Mine has a 4.5 & it looks a lot different to yours, I have 35's. Congrats on the new Jeep!

He said they're 33x12.5's. So I'd guess that you're right. I think the salesman had no clue about that which he was speaking... as is typical with salesmen... but I guess they do have their work cut out for them.

yeah but you know how salesmen are. they don't know their a** from a hole in the ground. that's why I wanted the tire size verified.

that could be a 31 or 32...with the space in the well I'd say unlifted then.

I see a shock though, that means no inner fender, which means lifted. I want to see a close up. I'm still guessing budget boost. 4" of lift on 33's looks goofy, and that jeep looks proportioned. 2" or 2.5" if those are indeed 33's.

JK shocks are visible and accessible with the inner fender intact.

JIMBOX 06-30-2010 11:41 AM

:) Yup, the inner fender liner has nothing to do with the lift, till you go EXTREME

My shocks are visable before/after, which is also why I was able to do the brake line interference fix (fender liner)-after the lift

:rofl::rofl: JIMBO

GroundHawg 06-30-2010 12:58 PM

I know, but I have yet to see a JK lifted, with that inner fender put back in.

JIMBOX 06-30-2010 01:45 PM

:cool: One section of the installation instructions for these Bushwackers, is to reconfigure the stock JK fender liners, for complete installation security--

All four installed and all four brakeline relieved !!

Sorry about the exposure, but when I took this pic, 3 months ago, I didn't figure on showing the fender innards !!

:rofl::rofl: JIMBO

GroundHawg 06-30-2010 02:09 PM

wow. you're a rare one. maybe it's a local thing. every single lifted jeep I've seen is missing the inner fender. me personally, I was just too lazy to put it back on :rofl:

looking back and forth between jim's jeep, and the OP's I still can't tell. jim's jeep I know has a 2.5" lift and 33's...but it looks like you've got more room in the well.

did you get 2.5" on the money or a little more?

we need to find a 2 door with 4" lift and 33's lol

JIMBOX 06-30-2010 02:21 PM

:cool: Heh Heh, I've been called a 'RARE ONE' before !!

Measurements before and after, show a 2" actual lift in the front and I had to use the inner liners to install the Bushwackers

Those 33" tires are still at 32", because I had just got back from Pyramid Lake (just washed) and the tires were still at 26psi

:rofl::rofl: JIMBO

It would be VERY obvious. You can fit 35's with 2.5" on a JK. That Jeep has a 1" leveling kit, if anything. The OP can easily tell by looking to see if there is a space on the top of the springs.

Man...I don't know what's on that Jeep. after comparing yours with his I'm tempted to say that it's a stocker on 33's. I don't know I give up :rofl:

kevinss2001 06-30-2010 04:11 PM

it does have 33's on a 15 inch wheel--so what is the verdict?? I will work on pics, but I cannot promise how quick I will get them.

GroundHawg 06-30-2010 04:48 PM

I'd say pics are 100% needed :rofl:

the only thing I think we all agree on is that no way is that a 4" lift. :p

Decemp00 06-30-2010 05:05 PM

My guess is a 2” lift. I’ve been looking around at pictures of stock jeeps with 33” tires(wanted to make sure it works, that’s what I’m going to do until I get my lift on :) and the tires are much more snug under the fenders than those of kevinss2001.

I am interested to find out. I also have a silver jeep, and that is pretty much the “look” I’m going for.

by the way how did you get the pic to show up and not just the link, so I know when I get the rest of the pics:D

Try this thread... I've been studying it haha:D

TJNewbie 06-30-2010 06:04 PM

wouldn't it be easier to open the pic with the "paint program" then resize/reskew the numbers from 100% to 50%? it should load just fine afterwards.

i did read it, but could not get it to work--

KBR97 06-30-2010 07:47 PM

looks like a 2 or 2.5 in Budget boost. Whenever you get a chance take a picture of where the top of the spring sits.

Btw..My inner fenders are still intact too, what would installing a lift have anything to do with them??:confused:

kevinss2001 07-01-2010 10:16 PM

ok I have some pics--the first 3 are of the front of the jeep and the last 2 are of the rear--let me know what you guys think about what size lift it is??

you better go back to that retard salesman and tell him to give you $700 for a lift or knock it off the price

i am guessing there is no lift?

GroundHawg 07-03-2010 09:42 AM

I say no lift. I don't see any spacers. the springs and shocks look stock to me.
