Is Sahara Taller Stock?

Hello everyone, my Sahara came with 35" tires and 20" wheels when I purchased it.

No idea if it was lifted, but it seems stock.

Any way to find out if it was lifted?

Or do 35/20 fit stock height Saharas?

Couple rig pics and one of my son's Runner

No the Sahara does not come with a lift or even with 35" tires stock, so something's been changed.

And fwiw, this is the wrong section for your question. You'll get more responses if you get a mod to move it to the JK section and not the future JL section.

Thanks for the replied, guys.

I thought I had read somewhere that you can fit 35s/20s on a stock Sahara where you couldn't with a sport?

You can easily fit that tire/wheel combo with a minor lift and without needing to change shocks. If it has a 2" lift you might see some coil spacers or aftermarket springs. Judging from your pictures it has a minor lift

The suspension height difference across the various models is only around 3/4", but all stock JKs run the same bump stop so one stock model won't fit bigger tires than another.
