need help identifying whats been done to comanche

I picked up a comanche from a guy who knows nothing about it. He bought it as is and only put tires on it. Not sure if he went up to 32" or kept them the same at 32" but it has 32"s now. Im completely new to the off road scene, I used to keep it to strictly drag racing and motorcycles. This is why I need help. What I do know is that it has an aftermarket suspension and a couple bushings are dry rotted, but im wondering if I should replace the suspension and lift it higher or keep the suspension at 3". My tires are rubbing but if the suspension is a good suspension then ill do a 1" body lift and SOA in back and then maybe just bigger coil springs in front to match. I took pictures but have no idea what im looking at. Also what kimd of axle is in the rear? A 35 or 44?

comanches/cherokees use a unibody frame.....no bodylift kits can be used...

rear axle is a dana 35, 90's up would be a chrysler axle..

the dry rot bushing? seen the coil bushing/spacer..

Thanks, so that options out. Im thinking of just splurging and getting a rough country 6.5. Its 1k on ebay and like 900 on the actual website. And yeah the coil bushing spacer is what I was talking about.
