WJ suspension measurements

I am wondering if anyone out there has the measurements of the ground to wheelwell height of what a 2000 GC should be? Mine is about 9 y/o and has 130K miles on it with the factory tow package. I would like to put a lift on of no more than 2-3", but am wondering if I need new springs or if I can get away with a BB. I need new shocks either way I go, so that is not a concern. Any suggestions and the measurements would be helpful for comparision.

I believe it's 18" from center of wheel to fender on the front and 18.5" on the rear.

Stock hub to fender measurement is supposed to be 18" and 18.2 rear is what I read.

If you're looking for a lift, peruse ironrockoffroad.com
