Cool Zone 4" vs. Skyjacker Economy 4"

I need some help deciding what lift kit am I going to get for the TJ. I figure I am going the throw some 33" A/Ts and 15x8 Cragars on it. I want the most complete kit, that is quality and looks good. I am going to put the Transfer Case Drop on until I can afford the CV/SYE. This is whats included in the Zone Kit:
Four new Zone coils are included that are capable of being fully smashed down and they will always come back to their original height.
Front and rear extended sway bar links are included. These links come with urethane bushings to increase performance and reduce body roll.
A rear track bar relocation system is included to perfectly center the axle under your TJ.
A minimal transfer case drop is supplied to correct the driveline angle while maintaining as much ground clearance as possible.
2" bump stop extensions are included to protect your vehicle while still greatly increasing wheel travel
Four new massive lower control arms are included. These greasable arms are made from 1-3/4" x 1/4" wall DOM tubing!
New rear pinion cam plates are included to rotate the rear pinion for proper drive line angles.
The system is completed with 4 new Zone shocks that are specifically valved for your TJ to perform well both on and off road.

Skyjacker: Front and Rear Coils
Front and Rear Lower Control Arms
Front and Rear Hydro Shocks
Front Bumpstops
Transfer Case Lowering Kit
Front and Rear Sway Bar End Links
Drop Pitman Arm
Front and Rear Trackbar Bracket

Thanks in advance for the help. -Pearson

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

yea --it is a good kit for the price. I am going to be upgrading this summer.

Put it this way it was a great starter kit. To learn how to wheel and what the jeep can truly do. It will not break the bank when you finally learn what you want. The jeep will eat a ton of money if you do things 3-4 times but I figured to lift it and figure out where I wanted to be the 530 couldn't hurt. If you have any questions about installing it or any other lift most of us here will be more then happy to help

Thanks again for the help, are you upgrading for a larger lift/ would you be interested in selling me it when you take it off? -Pearson
