How can I tell if it already has a 2" BB?

I recently bought a 2000 WJ and it seems to set up a bit. Or maybe it's stock? How do I tell if it has stock setup or has a BB added already?
Sorry, no pic capability right now.

Look at the springs. If there are spacers above them, you have a BB.

Measure from center of the hub to bottom of the fenders... I believe 18 in front and 19 in the rear is stock without upcountry spring's.

Thanks it's-me-B and NARNWV, those pix help a lot! Looks like I have a stock setup, running about 18" front and 19" rear.

what made you think you had a spacer? Does it seem taller than what they normaly are? You might have up-country suspension.

Yes but some people have spacers with suspension lifts. Teraflex was one of the top end suspension lifts for WJs. My friend has an iro 4" lift and when we go on golfing trips, all the weight of the golf bags bogs the back end so he adds a 2" coil spacer in the back and adds an inch in the front.

True......but in my experience he generally does seem to know what he's talking about (unlike some on here!) so I've always got time to read his posts.
