Help me to get to know my JK

I finally got a 08 JK X unlimited after having an XJ, WJ, and WK. This JK had some mods on it already. I really Need some help figuring out what they are:

1. Its apparently a Rough Country lift- at least the shocks are. What's the best and proper way to measure the size of the lift? It's currently got 35" tires on it.
2. I am trying to identify the front bumper mfg- it has "jeep" punched into the metal. The rear is a Warn for sure
3. Is there an easy way to determine if any upgrades were done to the gears?

Thanks!

The RC 2½" BB is steel spacers on top of the springs.
The RC 2½" spring lift is just springs with stock isolators on top.
The RC 3¼" lift is the 2½" springs with ¾" poly spacers on top.
The RC 4" spring lift is very tall
A good way to figure out what parts you have is to look through the 4 door pic's thread!

Hub to fender measuments to find out how much lift you have. I'm not sure what the stock measurement is though.

The only bumper with Jeep on it would be the MOPAR front, probably a 2.5" or 3" lift.

The stock measurement varies as there are different spring rates installed from the factory dependent on model and accessory package.
