jeep newbie

First time jeep owner.
Recently purchased an 84 cj 7, Chevy v6 3" body lift sitting on 35's. Is there a way to tell if it already has a suspension lift?

Pics is the easiest way but with 35s, I would imagine it has to have one. Pics though, get the most help

looks to me like it's just the body lift. the springs don't even look like they've been re-arched. don't know how it drives, but you might want to check the pumpkins and see what gears you're running for tires that large. the 4.3 should have the power needed, but the right gears will make a big difference.

Sometimes you can find a model number on the leaf springs that will help you look up details. Those numbers are typically on the top face somewhere, either painted on or a paper decal.
