Had the Zone "4in lift installed about 3 weeks ago and love it so far. Think I got more than 4in out of it. Paid extra for the black nitro shocks and like those as well. I use it as my DD and haven't found any issues so far.

I have no complaints about the 4" zone. Definitely got more than 4". I recommend the front adjustable track bar.

Did you install an SYE with it or just the TC drop that came with it?

No adjustable track bar or SYE and CV for me yet. No plans to offroad with mine so waiting to see if the springs settle a bit and whether or not indeed to install an SYE.

On the zone 4" suspension lift does the Transfer case get dropped via spacers? I know the 4.25" combo lift doesnt do that and was just wondering if the 4" did. I have a 97 and currently running an atrocious 4" frankenstein that came on the vehicle. Sorry for a newb question that may have been answered elsewhere but I too had questions on the Zone 4".

Does anyone recommend a different 4" lift than Zone's that is in the same price range and if so, why?
Thank you!

It comes with spacers for the transfer case drop. The combo kit you mentioned is supplied with an MML which essentially replaces the TC drop so that you still get the belly clearance you had when you started. Can't measure my TC drop at the moment but think others have said it was a 1 5/8 drop. I still get vibes with mine but its minimal with carrying a spare on the rear and non-existent when I have passengers in the back seat. Hoping after another month or two the springs will settle some more and I won't need an SYE and CV upgrade.

4.25 for a month now and no complaints as far as product. I also got more outta my springs but well see if it settles. Happy with the ride so far. Light off-roading so far no issue but is my DD so I'm pretty easy on it. One complaint was the instructions . If u do it yourself , they suck. For me anyways . It seems as if the instructions may cover different yrs and pics r bad. I survived but had to look up on internet several times what and where they were talking about (handy but not a mechanic). Also packaging sucks as a few times I wondered if I used the wrongs bolts . Other than that I very happy with what I got and the price.

I have the 3" BDS shocks and springs and very happy with it. Zone is the sister company of BDS. I only chose BDS over Zone is because BDS has a lifetime warranty no questions asked.

I have the zone 3" lift. Loved it until I started adding weight. New bumpers, winch 35" tire spare etc.. I installed 1.5" coil spacers after that. I also bought adjustable front and rear trackbars. Love the stance now! I have 35" nitto trail grapplers and they look great on it.
I have a video of my son and I playing in the mud if you all want to see it!

Enjoy !

That blue is an awesome color! ^^^

My 3" zone lift has been delivered waiting for me to put it on. I got the adj track bar as was recommended. I have a mml so hopefully I won't have to do tc drop.
So I can't review until then but I did a lot of research and didn't find many complaints at all which is why I went with it. Got the upgraded nitro shocks as well. Allen at AOR on here hooked me up with mine.
