Bought my first Jeep. The Land Rover gods are angry........

Just bought a 2007 JKU for a song and a deal. It has a suspension lift a body lift front bumper and a winch on it. The only problem is NO ONE seems to know what any of it is. There are ZOne stickers and BDS stickers and a few other suspension brand signage floating around on the truck. It has a substantial lift on it. Im 5'11 and the factory running boards are at my waist.

Red lift springs

RCX? (what brand is that) Dual Steering stabilizer with Bilstein shocks

BDS Fox 2.0 shocks

The truck is running on 35's

Im assuming all the drive train is stock as well. I know it has factory gears in it lol lol lol.

Are there any particular suspension pictures I could take to determine the brand?

Any places I can measure from to determine lift height?

I am coming to Jeeps as a total noob. I have been wheeling for about 8 years but not in a Jeep HAHA.

Pics would help, but what the hell does it matter what brand it is?

Is it not doing something you need it too or are you just curious? To soft, stiff, tall, short?

Well I am hoping for a quality lift. If not then Im going to have to look into another one. Also yes, its pretty tall. I am going to pull the body lift off next weekend for sure. I just don't see any use for it other then making the Jeep a "Bro" ride. I am going to take some pics tomorrow and I will post up what I think are telling marks.

a 1.25 body lift is good for allowing a motor mount lift and drivetrain position massaging.

Not all Body Lift are bad.

Although 1.5 inch BL is as high as I would go.
