Zone 2" Lift Kit

Had a Zone 2" lift kit installed on my 2013 Sahara Unlimited, put 33's Nitto all Terran Grapplers on 17" AEV wheels.....looks great but rides like shi_' over bumps it bangs in the rear, skips over rough highways, not to bad of a ride on a smooth pavement.
New to the Wrangler forum, traded my 2012 Jeep SRT8 for the JK. Yes, I know, I have been asked, what are you stupid?
Looking for some suggestions on my lift issue, looked thru the forum, doesn't look like a lot of use for the Zone lifts.

Try airing you tires down 33" should be between 32 - 35 lbs.

I took them down to 32, rides better but not great, want the factory or close to ride back with the new look.

I run my 33s much lower than that but on 15 inch wheels...

What did the lift consist of? springs, new shocks? a budget boost?

Are you stupid? I think not. I would not trade my 2011 for a brand new SRT8

The kit consisted of shock and spring spacers, maybe a couple of other extensions. Cost $150.00 plus install.

If you didn't change the springs or the shocks you didn't change anything about your factory ride. The issue could be tire pressure, tire construction - shouldn't have to worry too much about geometry changes on a 2" lift.

Since you didn't go in for shocks, it might be time for some new shocks.

I would say it's your new wheels and tires with the little higher center of gravity coupled with the straight axles. Psi like above and I would say that is just how the jeep rides.
