Bds or Zone 3 inch

Ok so as I sit here on Sunday just waiting to click buy I start second guessing my decision. I have a 04 jeep tj and have a set of 33/12.5 duratracs just waiting to be bolted on. I was thinking the bds kit with out arms and adding savvy arms later. (3 months or so)

Now I am looking at the zone 3 inch kit and thinking is this a better idea? I could do this kit with jks discos and front and rear track bars.

Is their any reason the bds kit would be better then the zone kit? I would plan on upgrading everything down the road but really just looking for a starting point to get the 33s on. The cheaper kit would allow me to regear right away.

Also how does the zone ride? Does anyone know anywhere that might sell it with better shocks or is it not worth upgrading them.

As far as I know Zone is a sister company to BDS, therefore product is quite similar.

That is true. But I recommend BDS still. BDS has a really good warranty.
