Back to a Jeep - 1st Time with a lift

It's great to be back in a Jeep, just a purchased a 2010 JK with a lift. It is the first time owning a vehicle with a lift so is there anything I need to know about maintaining it, things to look out for, etc.

Welocme to JF.

If it rides/ drives fine, just standard maintenance, same as stock vehicle.

What kind of lift, how big, etc.

The ride and drive have no issues. It looks like the previous owner had larger tires on it and replaced them before he traded it in. My son-in-law thinks it's a 2" lift. Since I know nothing about lifts, I was thinking of going to a local place that does lifts and see what they can tell me about what my Jeep has.

You can measure it your self.

Ill add to this pic too as there are others that tell it better on line. But numbers given here can vary a bit too. Jks had a few spring rates. so that can be like .75+- depending on jeep model.

If you throw up some pics of the suspension, we could probably tell you too.

If it is 2" , there are a lot of options at that size; everything from a budget boost coil spacer up to a full coils spring lift system

Those look like aftermarket coils and shocks, so not a budget boost/ coil spacer.

Only companies I'm familiar w/ that uses that silver is Rubicon Express and Rough Country , but those don't look like RE standard shocks, they look more like RC...(so that's mostly a WAG)

No idea on amount of lift

Looks like a 2.5” RC to me especially with the silver springs, but normally RC goes crazy with labels. Maybe they just stripped them off during install.

Using 222Doc's diagram and I did it right, I measured the lift to be 3 inches. Thanks for all the input.
