Need help

Hello to everyone and thanks for your help in advance.I recently bought this 97 wrangler and seems somewhat lifted to me compared to other wranglers without some kind of lift.I may be wrong.I have looked under the body trying to find something but I cant.I only see one spacer on each side under the back door but I dont know if thats stock.It has 235/75/15 tires,but I`m thinking of getting 31/10.50/15.

It doesn't look lifted in those pics with that size tire. You can run 31's with no lift.


nice looking Jeep!

I've been in the same situation as you, trying to figure out whether my Jeep was lifted and, if so, what size lift kit it had in it.

I found out it had a lift when one of my rear shocks went bad and I took the Jeep and a set of OEM shocks to my mechanic to have both the rear ones (one bad one and one that was still okay) replaced, and the OEM shocks turned out to be too short. Joy. I also found out there's no easy way to figure out the size of the lift kit. Of course.

In the end, my mechanic suggested going to the local shop that does lift kits and seeing if they could figure it out. I had three of their guys out there looking at it, and the consensus among them was that it was a 2" lift.

I got all kinds of suggestions when I asked how I might figure out if it's lifted and how much, some of them made sense and some of them ... not so much. (Someone told me to measure from the ground to the axle ... uh... okay.)

Side note, my LJ came with 30x9.50 tires and now has 31x10.50 - which will fit without a lift (as people here pointed out). But if you are certain that yours sits higher up than many of the other Wranglers in your area, maybe take it down to a place that does lifts and see what they think. It worked for me, anyway.

Measure your springs if you don't see pucks at the tops of them. Stock springs are:
