How can i tell how much lift is on my '95?

So my dad and I just purchased a 1995 wrangler and the previous owner said that he bought it with a lift kit on it but doesn't know what size. Is there anyway to tell for sure how much lift is on it. It has 30" tires (for now)

here's a cut and paste that I saved from a different thread (sorry I can't remember who originally posted this) that I thought was pretty useful for figuring out how much lift a YJ has on it

Lift high increase over stock is determined by:

RH = Actual Rocker Height
TH = Actual Tire Height
BL = Body Lift
SH = Shackle Length

(RH - 18) - (((TH - 28) / 2) - (BL))

If RH = 26" and TH = 33" with no body lift we get

(26 -18) - (((33 - 28) / 2) - (0)) = Total Lift of 5.5" lift over stock.

We can further determine the spring lift as

Total Lift - ((SH - 4) / 2)

If shackle length bolt to bolt is 6" than Spring Lift is 5.5 - ((6 - 4) / 2) = 4.5" Springs.

Make sure to measure on level smooth ground just to the bottom of the rocker panel under the doors.
