When the seller said that it had 4" of lift .. did he mean 4" of suspension, plus 3" of body to give 7" total lift? If that's what happened, your 35" tires would look tiny under that much space. Can you show us a few pictures of your rig .. showing the body lift, showing the suspension lift and such .. take a wheel off and take a picture of the end of the axle sitting on the spring-pack .. the more pictures, the better (of course )

This is about 5"-6" of suspension and 2" of body on 33"s

I posted something similar to lift height due to my unknowlege with my CJ5. I think I have a 4 inch lift, but unsure.

First off, check the shackles. If they are 3" from center to center on the shackele bolts, they are stock shackles. Next, check the body mounts, if you can see space between the frame and body, measure it. If it is 1", you have a 1" body lift, etc. etc.

As for the Suspsension lift. Here are the measure ments I got. From the frame bottom to the axle, I have approximately 9" of lift. This gives me the ability, with stock shackles, and no body lift, to run 33"s comfortably. Check out what was mentioned and get back to me. I will give up more info if I can.

Hey OneSojourner,

Looks to me like you have some suspension lift in that picture, but I can't seem to make out any body lift from that angle.

Also, looks like you have the exact same seats in there as I have .. mine are from a LeBaron GT .. awesome seats, eh?
