Which Rubicon Express Lift Kit do I have? Pictures included.

This site has a list of 7 possible 4 door lift kits i have:
http://www.rubiconexpress.com/SuspensionSystems/JK.aspx

Mind the rust, i am fixing that.....here is what is under my Jeep


Looked these up:Rubicon Express Front Mono-Tube Shock which says For 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with 2-3.5" Lift


But i was running 37" tires.

Could i have a 4.5 and still have that shock or do i have a 3.5 lift here and still have 37" tires?

site says this:
(The 3.5" suspension will allow the use of 35" tires & the 4.5" suspension will allow the use of 37" tires.)


i bought the jeep with this on it... thanks for your help

Looks like the 3.5" Superflex system since you have the short control arms.

For comparison...mine with 35's and the 3.5" Rubicon Express Superflex kit...I haven't measured it recently, but immediately after the lift with the stock tires, I'd gained 5.5" of lift.
