Zone lift

What's the ride quality of the 3" zone?

Very nice. My buddy has one on his. Handles well, and articulates nicely.

Good kit for the money.

I just installed the Zone 3" lift with Nitro shocks about a month ago. Thus far I am impressed with the quality. The Nitros are stiffer than stock but should hold up nicely. I also gained almost 4" of total lift with the kit.

Savvy Offroad is going to offer a 3" kit soon that I would bet will be about as good as you will find when they do . It may be worth looking into .

I installed the Zone 4" kit on my 99 TJ 3 weeks ago and am very happy with it so far. Seems to be good quality. You may already know this but it is made by BDS. Mine came with their new nitro shocks and seem a little stiffer than stock but not teeth jarring like some i have heard of.

i like mine. i also got more than the advertised lift. about 3 1/2 or 4 inches, i guess, out of the 3 inch kit. i like the nitro shocks but haven't seen the other ones so i have no comparison.

This is good news. Those are the two lifts everyone raves about on this forum pretty much. Do I was looking into them how well does the zone flex? Anyone put it to the test?

Tagging along as these are my top two choices along with BDS. I'm not sure why there's a difference in price.

most of the kits will give you a little extra lift. however once the springs settle in you should get a true 3"'s of lift. I prefer not to run the Nitro shocks because of the stiff ride.

I just did their 4" kit with hydros and it rides soo much better than the 2" BB on stock coils that I had. I fit 33's easy on mine with no rubbing. Their kit does use a big TC drop, but you can go SYE route if you'd like. I got zero vibes out of mine.
