Can anyone identify this lift?

I know don't buy a lifted Jeep, but I liked it so I did. Problem is I don't know what it is and what the lift is. Some say this is a OLD Pro Comp, the seller claimed it was a Rubicon Express - both say it is not theirs. Any ideas would be helpful.

Thanks for any help you can give.

the red on the coils would make me say rancho or skyjacker.

The red paint showing on the front spring might indicate Rancho or SkyJacker

I am thinkin gits a hybrid lift. The red paint is augessting Rancho or Skyjacker but those controll arms are not either Rancho or Skyjacker. I have seen those before with the three hole in the reenforcement of the controll arm but I can remember what brand

Ive never seen Control Arms like that before. If you can find out where those came from youll get closer to knowing. If its not skyjacker or rancho control arms its prob a hybrid

Those look like pro-comp lower control arms. I haven't seen them in a while.

Pro-Comp denies they are theirs but who knows. Question is, should I trust them? I admit to being neophyte to jeeps so when he said they were Rubicon Express I believed him. In fact, it was what I was looking for and was a really good price for my area. Anyway, should I change them?

is there anything wrong with them? as long as they are structurally sound (not bent or cracked) I would stick some new bushings in them and run em.

I wonder if the LCAs could be from BDS a friend has a set of BDS rear Ladder bars on his Tahoe that look some what like those. BTW why no sway bar in the front but you have one in the rear?

Which is why I never buy pro comp cuz they don't know their ****.

Google: Explorer Pro Comp Control Arms Cherokee and you'll find a few images of their arms.

I think they are their older style arms. If you plan to wheel it, swap em out for something with a flex joint or go back to stock.
