Very nice! Do you have details on the lift? (what all did you have to do? TC drop, bump stops, etc, what came with the lift package)...

The kit comes with new shocks, coil springs, longer sway bar connectors, bump stop extensions, new mount for rear track bar, 3/4" transfer case drop, and all hardware. Real easy install, took me about 5 hours with a loaded shop. No issues at all with the install.

I like it too. I'm just about to order and install the Zone 3" lift. I already have 33's to put under it. Do you think the 3" by itself will hold 'em or should I also install a 1"BL?

Thanks. I think I will just stick to the 3" lift and no BL. If the springs sag enough years down the road I will add the BL. My wife and kids already complain about climbing in my LJ.

I am replacing a 3"BL by the way.

Did any of you guys find the TC drop necessary? How about any drive train vibes?

I did the TC drop right away. I have had no vibe problems. (knock on wood) I have been driving around a little over a week now. The only problem I had was the alignment was way out. But that was expected.

TC drop is easy to do just remember to loosen the 4 bolts holding the trans. to the skid plate so everything can move and shift to where it wants. then re tighten when done.
