I just bought this 99 wrangler saturday from a dealership and it has a lift on it to clear the 32s on it. I used to drive a 94 cherokee with a 6 inch lift on 33s but I cant for the life of me determine how much is on this one. The previous owner didnt install the lift and didnt know wut it was. wut worries me is that I know it has a sizeable lift on it yet it still has stock control arms and im sure everything else is stock....are there things I should do like get longer arms for it or other things.

i'd say that at most it has 2" of lift. take a picture of the suspension...especially around the front spring area so we can see if it has aftermarket springs or just spacers.

No body lift. The stock steps are right along the bottom edge of the rocker panel. The grill sits too low below the front frame cover for a body lift. Whatever is on there is pure suspension. Looks to be in the 2"-3" range.

If it doesn't have vibes and drives fine...then what are you expecting us to tell you to fix?

As long as it has less than about a 4" lift you should be fine. After about 4", a long arm upgrade is the way to go.
