BDS or Zone Suspension???

Been looking at these two. Seem to be the best bang for the buck... BDS has a 2" coil spring suspension with shocks for just over $400. Zone jumps from a 2" spacer with shocks to a 3" coil spring with shocks. Then hydro vs. nitro; been reading but still stumped??? Don't plan on going with heavy bumpers and equipment. It's a daily driver. Just want to add some mild off-road travel. Was also considering the RE springs with one of these company's shocks??? Don't want to go over 2" and have to deal with all the extra parts and adjustments that go along with it right now.
I've checked out the forum and read up on the lift reviews.
Just looking for a subtle point in the right direction. Currently running 31 duratracs, stock wheels, 6cyl, 5spd. Thanks.

I've got 3" BDS coils on the front of my TJ and like them. For some reason one side is a half inch higher.. :/ Gotta ask my dealer about that one, may have to swap out.

Are you sure BDS owns Zone? I hadn't heard that before.

i would go with the Zone lift. I'm looking at their 4" lift and haven't found a single negative review about it. Everyone praises their customer support and says their lifts are quality.

Well according to the BDS dealer down the road from me that has been for at least 10yr that I know of a nothing but BDS guy. YES.

Same thing with Black dimond lifts....they are owned and produced by Superlift.

Several companies do this.

So a BB lift by BDS or Zone is pretty good then!! See I've liked the big BDS kits but right now while money is tight I'm looking to do the same thing on my 05' Tj as this guy is, just want to give a little extra clearance for off road and I want to level my front up with the rear.
