IRO 3" lift measurement needed

Im currently running a 2" bb lift with up country springs on my WJ. The springs are 125K old, and are probably sagging some. The BB is also just shy of an actual 2 inches, so im thinking of putting some 3" IRO springs on it.

Im wondering if anybody with this lift could give me a measurement from the axle center to the lip of the fender? Im curious as to how much lift i would actually get by going with the 3 inch springs, of if i should just go with the 4" ones.

Thanks in advance.

Stock WJ measurement from hub to fender is 18". You can do the math for lifts.

i have an 04 freedom laredo with the 2 in budget boost which came factory with the up country springs, it has roughly 121000 miles on it and i am at 21 inches hub to fender, therefore if the factory measurement is 18, you won't be getting much from 3 inch springs, if anything at all

thanks for the measurements guys. im at a touch over 20" with my current setup, so the 3" springs should get me a little over 21" from what it sounds like.

i'd go with a 4" LA kit, but i just dont have the funds as of now. im gona get some coils and JKS track bar on order.
