Trying to figure out if my JK is lifted (sorry for another "is my jeep lifted?" Post)

As the title says, I bought my JK used and dont have much experience with working on my car. I have included pictures if that helps. Also, running on 35's if that helps.

The reason I am asking is because I noticed my bump stop was rotted out, and did some research and determined this, in fact, can be done by me! I went to go buy new bump stops and realized if I have a lift, I need a different size bump stop.

Long story short, do I have a lift and need a different size bump stop?

Also, you may want to consider some Rustoleum Rust Reformer, followed by Rustoleum semi-gloss black spray paint, where needed on your undercarriage and components.

After treating the rust spots and repainting the parts of the undercarriage that need it, apply something like Fluid Film (sort of smelly for a bit then it goes away) or Boeshield T-9 (my choice) to the undercarriage to keep the rust at bay.

I would agree, based on the design of the coil spring, and what appears to be the factory sway bar end links. Also the sway bar looks level, which it wouldn't be if it were lifted and the stock end links were retained.

I agree that it doesn't look lifted. Those also don't look like 35s, though.

Looks stock but is that a piece of wire stuck in your front drivers side tire?

Doesn't look lifted to me, either. But it's got Daystar (or equivalent) hood latch rubber. Replacing those old factory dog bones is a must-have upgrade, IMO.

Welcome to the Jeep community!

When I bought my JKU, it was slightly used and the dealer told me that it had a lift on it. To figure out how much of a lift I have, I went by a Jeep dealership on a Sunday and took some measurements from a stock Jeep similar to my model. I measured from the center of the wheel to the bottom of the fender. Tire size will not change that dimension. Only a lift will move the axle farther away from the body / frame. When compared to my Jeep, I found out that I have a 2" lift.

What the hell is going on here? This isn't the quote I'm trying to copy.

No lift. Not 35's.

This is the stock average height . Measure as indicated and - 18 1/2” and that’s your lift.
