Lift height

Alright, so I am trying to decide on a few things for my YJ but I can't make a decision before I figure out what size lift I have on this. I know it's lifted, and it has about a 1.5-2 inch transfer case drop. I put new shock on it about a year ago. Based off the shocks I pulled off, I used the part number and it showed that they are used for 2.5-3 inch lifts. I have no idea if the shocks are correctly sized though. I'm riding with 32s but it seems like there's more space than what there should be if 2.5-3 inches of lift was installed.

Here's a couple pictures I took when I stripped it down to have painted.

Any ideas?

Get a measurement to the bottom of the rocker panels. Stock is 18" on 29" tires. Half an inch for every inch of tire you're running then subtract 18

I believe you are right.

The old shocks I pulled off were made from skyjacker. So I just read up on one of their lift kit manuals and it showed that if there was a 4" kit installed, a track bar expansion bracket that comes with the kit should be installed. On the other lower kits by skyjacker, these brackets were not supplied. So based off of that, I have to believe I have a 4" lift. I will confirm by measuring ground to rocker clearance.

I guess I now should replace my struts to match a 4" lift, not a 2.5-3" lift.

I have no idea why I called it a strut. I guess I had been doing so much reading on shocks and struts that the term slipped my mind.

Thanks! And that's my mother driving. I couldn't trust her driving my rental that I had while the jeep was being painted.

She's single!
