Trying to determine actual lift

Maybe I should post this in the Stock forum

My JKU has gone through a lot of changes over the years, so combined with many different suspension pieces, and some spring settle over the years, I'm looking to buy new shocks and trying to determine the actual lift as of now, it should be around 6" give or take.

I took a measurement from the top of the left side axle tube to the bottom of the frame and got 12.5 inches, looking to get a stock measurement to see where I'm at

Thx

Thanks for the pics. I have swapped from 14/55 to 17/58on my swb to offset my bumpers, winch, and 37" spare. This will give me an idea of how much that helped.

Nice pics for the archive, Big.
Got one for the rear shock length and ride height?

Something wrong with the factory measurements he and I posted for the front and rear?

I wouldn't exactly call a single digit number with a +1/-.5 tolerance a measurement.

I just liked the pic with the hard numbers. I assumed it was the basest of numbers indicating a set height...much easier for my mind to wrap around it all.
Since installed rear shock and spring lengths didn't make the cut, I thought I'd ask. Maybe that image isn't/wasn't available but was there any harm in asking?
