Post a pic of your YJ and suspension. I will guess about 3-4". From the ground to the rocker measures 18" on a stock YJ. The best way to tell would be to measure from the center of a hub to the bottom of a flare, but I'm not sure of the measurment on a YJ.
Just a heads up, don't post with all caps, it's frowned upon. It means your pissed off. Cool

The way it was described to me was to drive one side of the Jeep up on a ramp so that it compresses the shock on one side and extends the shock on the other side. Then you measure the shock on each side from mounting bolt to mounting bolt and that will give you the travel distance for the shock.

You can then use those measurements to pick out your new shocks. You will need to do this both in the front and back. I know it doesn’t help find the amount of lift that you have but it tells you what size shocks to buy.

I hope this helps.

Take the shocks off the Jeep before you do this so you get the most travel. Then measure between the mounts to get your range of motion for the shock.
