I'd say about 2.5-3".

Measure the coils if there are no spacers. 12" front, 8" rear is stock.

Yep, looks like you probably have a 3" lift then.

Also another question, do you think 33's would fit, and look good with this lift?

that's a loaded question. whether they fit or not depends on the suspension setup. you've posted exactly zero useful pictures to tell us what's going on under there, so anyone that advises you 33s will fit has a lack of suspension understanding. you don't know what you have, and only you have the Jeep in front of you. figure out what you have, then determine what it needs, then determine what tires will fit around those parameters.

post well lighted detailed pictures of your steering linkages, suspension linkages, springs, shocks, etc.
