Lift help

I know this has been probably beat a little but I would like some help making a decision. My jeep which is an 03 with 2.4 and is my daily driver. I was considering the zone 4.25 in combo kit but I'm thinking about getting 2 in ome springs with blistein shocks. Either way I know I need new wheels with more backspacing. But I was looking at 33 duratracs which are actually on the small side (closer to a 32) but any opinion would be taken into consideration. Thank you guys for your help.

Vincent

I would go with the 2.5" OME Lift Springs and either OME or Bilstein shocks. Then add in a 1" BL or aftermarket fenders to help clear the 33's. Would also look into a regear to help gain back some performance from the oversize tires.

With the 2.5 ome springs isn't that too stiff of a spring rate for my 4 cyl with no added weight at all

I did the ome 2.5 lift heavy duty with my jeep. I have the 4.0 in mine and it wasn't that stiff of a ride. I didn't have the winch bumper on then. But I looked at it this way. Why buy the soft springs then add the bumpers and winch and then have to buy the heavy duty springs? No sense spending money twice.

Yea you would need a lower rated spring with the 4cyl with no extra weight. The 2" OME springs would give you better spring rate options closer to OE than the 2.5". Not sure if you are planning bumpers or winch in the near future. You will still have to do fenders or 1" BL to clear the 33's.

I can do the hd springs but what about the zone kit? And I can just trim the flares a little because the duratracs run small in a 33

Where did you get it from? I'm looking into this list as well.

Zone Offroad is a branch company of BDS. I have a BDS 3" lift installed by PO. It works good but plan on upgrading soon to better all around components. Zone lift is a good entry level lift with good prices. There are better options out there but there are a lot of people who like their Zone Lifts and would highly recommend them.
