What lift is on my XJ?

I was told its the Rubicon Express 3.5" super flex lift but taking a look at it online and looking at the components on my jeep, it doesnt seem to quite match.

Ive got adjustable uppers and lowers but they dont seem to come with the 3.5 or 4.5 lift.

Im also running 32s and according to RE, the 4.5 fits 32s.

sorry for the lame thread, just want to know what I have

That kind of does look like early generation Rubicon Express stuff.

both if possible. Ill probably have to measure the height and compare it to stock but i was hoping based on the components, it would be a bit more obvious to someone.

Yes, that appears to a Rubicon Express lift. The 3.5" lift can be ordered with adjustable control arms (or they could have been added later). 32's can be run on 3.5" of lift with proper trimming. That and RE lifts tend to ride higher than advertised.

And judging by your lower control arm angle, I'd guess 3.5-4.5" of lift (probably 3.5" RE springs). You can measure yourself by measuring the top of the front axle tube (not the spring perches or diff housing... the tube itself) to the bottom of the frame. Factory is 6-3/4" +/- 1/2" so I'd guess you'll be around 10-11" for a RE 3.5" lift
