2000 TJ - Stock or is it lifted?

I recently bought a 2000 TJ 2.5 4cyl 5spd. Got a good deal on it due to frame being junk basically. I go tomorrow to pickup my new frame. Body is rust free is why i jumped on it.

So, since im tearing my jeep completely down to swap frames...this would be the time to do any suspension work also... But, i want to be sure i don't have something already.

Jeep has 31x10.5 15 tires now. I measured from ground to rocker 19 1/2" Is my rig stock height or lifted at all?

I want to go 2 - 2 1/2" lift..but just want to know it doesn't already have one.

thanks!!

Measure the springs with the jeep on level ground. Stock springs are 12" tall in the front, and 8" in the rear. If your springs are longer than that, then it's got a lift. The difference between your measurement and the measurements I mention above is the height of the lift.

From those measurements it sounds stock, my stock before lift on 30s was around 18.5, and if you have 1" taller tires it would make sense to be an inch higher

Regardless, with the measurements it sounds stock to me, but maybe I'm wrong

Thanks for the help! It's stock from what I'm seeing now. Think I'm just gonna budget boost 2" with spacers and new shocks
Thanks!

You definitely can do a 2"BB, but remember your springs are 16 years old and likely due to be replaced....so 2" Springs would be a better option. (But I do understand wanting to keep costs minimal.)
