How do I know if my Jeep is lifted and how much?

I recently bought a 92 Wrangler 4.0 for winter fun and commute. The seller wasn't much help with things and searching this forum is difficult for me, 60 seconds is way too long to wait between searches. I did some but did not find...

The jeep has 31x10.50s on it and there is plenty of clearance, no rubs, and the ride is quite stiff and bumpy (well my other car is a cadillac... so yeah its bumpier than the cadillac at least) How do I determine if the Jeep is lifted? I looked under it and nothing looked to be aftemarket appearing, but I am not familiar with the underside of a YJ. I would guess there is some sort of reference to know how big is the biggest sized tire with each lift or stock height.

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like it is lifted if you have 31's and plenty of clearance. Snap a few pics of it and most can point out what you have.

measure the height from the ground to the bottom of the rockers. stock height is 18 inches. if you any more than in the 19'' range (because of your larger tires) then you have a lift.

that is a mild spring lift. Those are stock shackles.
