how much lift do you think i have?

So, as the title says... How much lift do you think i have, specifically on the rear? The front would be nice too...

I measured the front, and have 23". The rear, I haven't measured. Can't find a tape when you need one.

I have TJ "4"" springs on the front. Looks more like 2-3(I have a 6). There front springs came out a i4 Tj, so they may be a bit weak.... I have a serious rake right now. Then I did the S10 bastard pack on the rear. looks like 6-7... I'll measure the rear when I find a tape measure.

I'd say 3.5 front

6.5+++ rear

When you did the BP did you use the overload?! Looks like you did! Take it out and maybe swap out another s-10 leaf with an old xj leaf. That's what I did. Settled now around 4" in the rear w/o any shackles

Where are you measuring 23"? Factory stance from the center of the wheel to the bottom of the fender flare is 17.5" front and 17" rear.
Find a tape measure.

That's exactly where I measured from. Maybe its time for a new tape measure, or lessons on how to use it!

I did use the overload from the s10 springs. Figured you were supposed to. I have seen lots of other BP's with it. I also used Superior Automotive shackles, p/n 13-4100.

My rear leaf springs actually had a negative arch. They were done, man.


Now. With that said, what would i need for a 6.5 inch lift?
Adjustable trackbar
LCA's
Sye
Rear /front drive shaft
Shocks
New front/rear brake lines
33-35 inch tires with a 3-4 inch wheel back spacing?
Pitman arm?

Anything else, aside from the balls to drive something lifted that high?

For 6.5", adjustable control arms, brake lines, shocks, coils, SYE, Driveshaft, adj. double shear trac bar, steering alignment, sway bar links, axle shims. Its costly, ask me how I know! Or look at my build thread to see what I did. I suggest just taking some leafs and the overload out until you are ready to go to 6.5"

So... I found my tape measure. They always seem to get lost.

Stock, its supposed to ride 6.5 on the front, and 6 on the rear.
TJ springs, I have 9.5 in the front, and 14 in the rear with the bastard pack and the 13-4100 superior automotive shackles in the rear that were supposed to only give me 1 inch of lift.

So... That's 3.5 in the front, and 8 in the rear. The rear sits at 28 inches of bumper height, which would probably go down a bit with the front coming up.

Maryland has a 20 inch bumper law.... That I don't know how strictly is enforced.
