Lift question?

Hey guys i have some questions to ask the lift experts. I own a 06 TJ and I am new to the world of jeeps and lifts. With that said I am planning on buying a lift for it some time next week. I have been looking at the. 4.25" combo lift kit by zone and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this lift? I also herd that with this kit you do not need a transfer case drop or a SYE because of the body lift and the motor mount lift, is this true? And lastly if someone dos have experience with this lift what are the pro's/con's you have seen with it? Here is a link to the kit http://zoneoffroad.com/product?ki=451&gr=-1 Thx in advance for the advice i really appreciate it. :wave!

Ok I will chime in. The reason you dont need the t-case drop is because it has a small lift. 3" or less you might not need the SYE either. Personally I don't like body lifts. They always seem to look a bit awkward to me being able to see betwen the body and frame. Eventually you will want to probably do a bit better lift any way. If your going to spend money on a lift, get one that you will be completely satisfied with. There are several companys out there to choose from. Do some research and do it right. My lift is a Tomken lift. www.tomken.com They are a small company out of central Colorado and I know there stuff works. It has taken me 5 years to get it to where it is now. The whole thing was also done on a budget. Just remember sometimes "You Get What You Pay For". I am sure plenty of others will give you many ideas of what to get.

I'm installing the Zone 4" lift this weekend, I will be using the Tcase drop for now, until I can afford the SYE and Shaft. I'll post up some pictures Saturday evening after I finish !

I'll be running 33 12.5 15's Goodyear MT/R .. The Slip Yoke Eliminator is what you use with a CV Drive shaft so you dont have to use a TCase Drop.

Well my lift showed up yesterday morning. I did manage to finish the front end without too many issues. I did have to use a spring compressor to get the coils in. The rear is being a pain in the butt. The pinion angle shims for the upper control arm mounts are probably the biggest pain, make sure you have some nice sharp metal bits for your die grinder to open the holes up. Be real careful with the upper rear shock mounts, I have two broken bolts and need to figure out how I am going to get them out. Today wont be a fun day !
