Doesn't look like it. The tires are small?

I dunno. I was at Lowes yesterday and there was a red TJ parked a few spaces down from mine. It looked like it sat a lot lower. Now, surely NOONE would commit the crime of lowering a Wrangler, so I assumed that perhaps mine had been raised a bit. The PO said that he was the second owner and had kept it stock, like his friend the original owner. I replaced the stock steelies with the 15 inch canyons from a Grand Cher. and the tires are 215/75/15 (one of three OE size options on the 97s). Been looking at some other Jeeps this morning, and I just can't tell.

it looks like theres a gap where the plastic splash gaurd is in the rear... maybe a 1" BL can you take some closer pics of the center by the skid plate/rear. it could be you have bigger tires. and sadly people do lower wranglers.

hard to say exactly, but judging by where the rear bumper is in relation to the body, it doesn't look like a body lift.. if anything something suspension related..

No spacers, but the springs are definitely newer. Here's a different angle. I'll get a rear shot to night...

Get a few more shots from a few different angles especially low shots all around.. you can also measure from the ground to the bottom of the rockers too and find stock height vs your height

it looks higher then stock. but then again it could be the angle your taking pics from =/


@ Nick look at the first pic theres a noticeable gap in the splash gaurd&frame also the bumper looks like there could be a 1" or half in thurr.

Didn't get home 'til after dark last night, and the pics weren't any good. I'll try this afternoon. I did check the body mounts and ther weren't any spacers. The springs are obviously newer, but nothing else has been replaced.

Can't tell, I think they are factory size replacements, because nothing has been replaced EXCEPT the springs. No new shocks or bushings that normally come in a kit. I don't think there is any lift on it, just the wheels and tires are too small...looking to remedy that now!.
