Is my jeep is lifted?

Hello guys,

I was wondering if you can help to understand if my jeep is lifted.
I attached few pictures...
The jeep is running 31x10.50r15lt ... I am trying to understand if I can run bigger tires.

Thank you in advance for your help.

It looks to me that you have bigger shackles. Looks like you have stock springs.

looks like about 2" lift springs with aftermarket shackles. to check shackle lift measure from bolt to bolt. stock is 4", 1/2" lift for every inch over.
check your rocker panel height, stock is 18" with 28" tires so subtract 1 1/2" from your height for 31" tires.

I agree. The springs look flat or very close to flat. Which means stock springs. Those are definitely lift shackles

Thank you very much for your answers...
I measured the rocker panel and is 21.5 ... so as you said it's 2 inches lift... what is weird is that the shackle from bolt to bolt is 4 inches, which is stock size according to your statement.
Now dumb question: with 2 inches lift, 31x10.50r15lt is the biggest tire I can fit?
Thx again guys.

After really looking at it, those shackles are pretty small. They don't hang down there as much as my 1/2" lift or 1" lift shackles.

As to the OP, yes, that's about the biggest size you can run on that lift unless you go to tube fenders.

.
you might be right..they are not factory shackles for sure..I don't think the springs are factory either,are they ?? All of mine just have a band around the leaves rather than the bolt like these..

Unless I am misunderstanding what to measure (which is very likely ) it's 4 inches... I attached a picture.
So with this lift and tube fenders what size do you think I can fit?
Also, Do you suggest a different solution rather then tube fenders? Like a different lift kit or something?
Any detail would be much appreciated as I am a newbie and I live on a small island, buying spare parts is always a PITA here ... so I am trying to figure out exactly what I need to buy.
Thx a lot

yeah,those are stock size but in my opinion a better shackle than the stock ones,,you could modify the flares/fenders and fit a 33..I think that is a good idea..the least you lift one to accomplish what you want to do the better

steering will be fine..if you are not doing heavy offroading you might get by with trimming your flares

I ran 33s with ~2" of lift with tube fenders and loved it. No rubbing problems. My fenders are from CC Fab on eBay. And my rear flares are Smittybilt tubes.

You have lift springs. Stock springs are basically flat from the factory. Yours have arch to them.

Measure from the ground to the rocker panel, should be 18" for a stock Jeep. Anything more is how much the jeep is lifted over stock.
