UPDATED W/ COMPONENT PICS! Help identifying my lift...

I bought my Jeep used, it's the first Wrangler I've owned, and it was already lifted when I purchased it. Now I'm trying to identify the kit that was used. The shocks are stamped with zone offroad's logo, but that is the only thing I know. How do I go about figuring out what kit was used, how much of a lift it is, and other relevant info like what parts were installed and what's stock still.
Here is a snap of the rear shock.

I don't know why the pic posted sideways, but I can't fix it.
By the way, is zone worth a damn? It seems to have mixed reviews everywhere I look.
Thanks guys.

UPDATE: PICS
I'm uploading these through Tapatalk, and it doesn't give me any rotation options, so they are all sideways, so freaking annoying!

My tires are LT285 / 70 R17.

To help you out we need pics of the actual lift i.e. the springs, sway bar links, any spacers on the springs or body, control arms if they are not factory etc. Some one on here may have a zone lift

The giant Zone on the shock means it was probably purchased as a kit. They have some really inexpensive lift kits that the previous owner probably jumped on.

Hmm, inexpensive as in low quality and needs replaced asap, or inexpensive as in a really good deal?

I had my open water final dives this weekend, so I'm working on getting some pics up of the components still.

There is nothing wrong with a zone lift if you are not doing extreme rock crawling. I've had my 3" on for almost 2 years with no issues. It has decent flex and the road manners are close to stock. I purchased because it wasn't much more money than a two inch spacer lift and it was made in the US. Those look like the nitro shocks so whoever bought it orginally didn't get the cheapest version. Post a pic of the Jeep and we might be able to tell you if it's a 3" or 4".

Could really be anything. Springs are not really unique.

Looks like its somewhere between a 2.5" and 3" lift at the moment.

Looks like the zone 3" kit my buddy use to have. There should be a frame side track drop bracket for the rear track bar also.
