Looking for decent lift

I am looking around for a decent sized lift kit that I wouldn't have to do the whole sye and new driveshaft, etc..
I was looking at zone and thought they had a good lift for a decent price

What do you guys think about this one.

That's probably a very good choice, although upgrading the shocks would probably be a good idea. Zone is made by Teraflex? I think, and they make a good product..

I would look at the Rough Country 3.25" which upgrades coil springs and shocks.

Ive just never heard good stuff about rough country. I've always heard they live up to the "rough" in the name

I have the Zone 2" BB lift with the Nitro gas shocks, steering stabilizer, cam alignment kit, shock boots, and also added the JKS quick disconnects. My Jeep handles much better than stock and the JKS gave me the extra articulation to have fun on some good trails. The customer service at Zone is also excellent. I highly recommend their company. Hope this helps

how much are you willing to spend on the lift? theres a bunch of great lift kits out there..

distorted is running a very nice lift kit =p but it will cost more then the zone kit your looking at..

imo.. the money spent on a better kit will be worth it in the long run.. especially on a DD

I heard the same thing regarding the 2.2 series shocks on the Rough Country Lift. Seems that was quit some time ago and they have since designed a better shock. I'm going to give it a try because I have heard good things recently.

I'm hoping to not break 1k but if it's worth the money I will. I'm just looking for a decent lift that will allow 33's and room for moderate flex. Nothing hardcore rock crawling.

I chose to go with OME lift. I did not want to spend a fortune on drive shaft mods, etc. either. I decided to go the small suspension lift and add the small body lift and run 33's nicely. Everything lines up and works like it should if you do it right. There are a lot of members on here running similar lifts.
