Fab Tech 3 inch lift... thoughts????

A place in town has some great deals on the FabTech 3 inch lift, that he has in stock right now, or I can wait about a month for a Zone 3 inch lift for $100 cheaper.

I have heard nothing about FabTech for Jeeps, but a lot of my buddies with trucks have had good reviews of the 6 inch lifts on their's.

Anybody out there with any experience with Fab Tech on their JK? And if so I would really appreciate a pic or 2.

Just ordered a 3" FabTech lift today for my 2012 JKU getting 33 Terra Grapplers, and M/T Classic II Wheels. Install next week! I have heard good things about the system.

Fabtech Lift

I have a Fabtech 4" lift on my TJ, got it installed about 3 years ago and it has been great! No complaints...

It is a pretty low end system with no caster correction, a frame side rear track bar bracket and cheap shocks... All of which are undesirable.

Zone is the same way, they're both low end systems. Just remember for a couple hundred dollars more you can get a much better engineered system.

It's the suspension system of your Jeep, don't think of it as a spot to go for a cheap upgrade.

Consider something like the RK Flex combo from Northridge. It's less than $1200 with premium components.

Ended up not going with a lift after all. With the tire/rim combo I have, I thought a lift wasn't really needed.
