Does my used TJ have a lift or SYE?

Hey everyone,

I've got a couple questions about my used 99 TJ.

1. I can tell it's some sort of aftermarket lift, but I don't know what or how big it is. Looks like there might be a BB in there too? The frame is 16" above the ground on 31" tires.

2. I know it's not a CV driveshaft, but how can I tell if there's an SYE?

Thanks for the help!

looks like just a BB and no SYE.

how tall are the springs? factory was 12" front and 8" rear with the tires on the ground. anything over that is added lift.

also, hard to tell whats going on in the rear pic, but that jounce bumper looks to be destroyed

To me it looks like stock springs with a 3" spacer up front, and a 2" spacer out back.
Hard to tell in the pics.
Stock slip yoke on the TC. If it had an SYE, the yoke to attach the rear driveshaft would be at the tail cone....like it is for the front shaft.

Here's the tail end of my TC after my SYE install.
Now a fixed yoke.

Thanks for the insight gents. Jed was right, 12" on the front, 8" on the rear springs.

That spacer on top of the front springs is a budget boost lift spacer (not stock). Measure it's height to determine the amount of lift in front. Can't tell if there is one on the back or not by the pics.
