Zone 2" BB

Thinking of this one (with shocks and steering stabilizer) for my 2011 JK 2dr, and looking for opinions from anyone currently running this lift. Does it level the JK, or lift all 4 corners 2"? Allen makes these kits too good to pass up.

Link to what?

Well, I guess it can't be that great if no one else is using it. Thanks for the input.

A link to the manufacturer's or retailer's website so we can see which of the 100 million lift kits you're talking about.

Is it this one: (http://zoneoffroad.com/product?ki=38&gr=-1)? Or this one: (http://zoneoffroad.com/product?ki=37&gr=-1)? Another one? Neither comes with the extra components you mentioned.

In general, I'd stay away from body lifts for a JK. Doesn't sound like you're going that route though anyway.

Gotcha. It would be this one 2" JK Coil Spacer Kit

The shocks and stabilizer were suggested necessities.

Kit looks fine to me. I'd upgrade to nitro shocks and lose the steering stabilizer though. The quick discos would be nice too, though there's more affordable ones out there.

I stuck with zones hydro shocks personally and they ride great for me. alot of nitro shocks wear out pretty quick, but it really just depends on the brand. you never know til alot of people have used them. I also agree with MTH about no steering stabilizer. and I would wait out on the disco's. Zone has a good rep and makes quality products.

Thanks, guys. I am going to show my ignorance here by saying I have no idea what the quick disconnects do. Are they for rock crawling, mudding, or off-roadin in general?

^^quick disconnects allow you to disconnect your front sway bar from your front axle more quickly than you would normally be able to do. Result is less stable handling at roadway speeds, but much greater ability to flex your front suspension while offroad and thereby maximize ability to keep 4 tires on the ground. Not necessary except on really (really) rough trails and rock climbing. Many never bother to get quick discos, they're just neat to have. Skip'em for now.
