Looks like it's running a set of 295/70R17s, it says so in he ad. Given that, it's probably a 3-4" lift. I don't see a dropped front differential, so it's most likely not a Superlift, but some sort of modified 2" lift.

A modified 2" lift will wear hard on front suspension components, and unless it's got upgraded UCAs I don't think it'd even align properly. In addition, running that tire size on stock rims means it has to have at least a 1.5" spacer, putting even more wear on components.

I'd also bet those tires rub pretty badly at full lock. 295s are far too wide for that setup, especially on the passenger side, unless the rear HVAC system has been disconnected.

What would be an example of a modified 2" lift? I am assuming:
2" spacer + something else?

Hello,

If this is the one on Ebay, I asked them and they said that it is a 2" lift with 33" tires.
It looks higher than that to me.

You can't run 33" tires on a 2 " lift without doing some cutting on the body.

How much cutting is needed to run 33" tires with a 2" lift?

@JDFenn2017 ;

That question really can't be answered properly, without knowing the size, offset and back-spacing of the rims you'll be using, as well as the exact tire size.

I have the Old Man Emu medium duty springs on mine with Rancho RS5000 shocks and struts. They are supposed to be a 2" lift over stock and I am running newer Cherokee rims and 245/70/17 (30.5") tires on it. Those tires look awfully close compared to mine.
