Talking zone lift all done! YAY!!!

just went to pay the shop and my lift is done. I am so excited to drive it but seeing it sitting next to a lifted jeep on 35's makes me realize my now lifted jeep on 225's needs some new tires!!!! kinda looked funny sitting next to a monster. lol . think they parked it there on purpose

anyone know where on the shocks the stickers go? also had them put the boots on figuring i could cut them off if i changed my mind. i will drive around a bit before I decide but I do want to put the silver stickers on the black shocks but not sure wihick way they should face. figured rears should be facing behind me

you can put the stickers on wherever you want. i would face them all to the side so you can see them. i choose not to put them on or the boots. it actually doesn't look bad with those tires but it would look better with bigger ones.

thats probably about as big as you can go. thats the size i would use in your situation. try to get the spare too. if it's not the same tire at least try to get the same size.

I have a 2 inch BB and 31's and mine rub. You might want some new wheels with some better backspacing. That's on my list of things to do.

how to these ride, honestly? I just need a LITTLE clearance for my 31's, and it's not that I'm a cheapskate but I simply don't want a 3"+ lift.

Trying to see if I should do 2" coil spacers or 2" springs.

Jeep looks good, don't worry about going huge, as there will always be a Jeep out there to dwarf it LOL

I will post later after I pick it up about the ride since it is about a 20min ride home. cant wait to drive it!

ps. If you have the chance and money I would probably do the springs. I went this way cause it desparately needed shocks and have spent literally thousands in the past 2 months so I went cheap. I will eventually upgrade to better/longer springs in the future.

My jeep drives like its brand new! No more feeling like I'm driving an old mattress down the road! Love the nitro shocks, no squeeking, no vibes, just perfect IMO. I'm a happy camper

Like a broken record, "Depends on what you wanna do" seems to be the montra 2" BB is cheap, easy to do yourself, and give you plenty of clearance for 31's. Ours never rubbed.

How old were your previous shocks and were they stock? You like the nitros?

Congrats man! I just got my Zone suspension installed about two weeks ago and I'm thrilled with the Nitro shocks. Smooth ride and it looks incredible. I didn't put the stickers on the shocks, instead I just put one on the hood.

I am guessing my previous shocks were probably from 1997!!! they were a tube of rust and my Jeep sounded like a squeeky mattress as it went down a bumpy road. one shock was leaking too. ride is awsome with the nitro shocks compared to worn out factory shocks from 1997. I chose the Zone nitros based on reviews and what I personally wanted. I hear nitros from other brands are not as nice. some people dont like skyjacker nitros (too stiff?) a friend has skyjacker hydros and its only been a year and they are leaking and shes gonna change them out. I wanted longevity and durability. took a chance because I was told zone is made by BDS and BDS is very good.

Awesome, I think you just sold me on the 2" nitro BB from Zone....my shocks are probably stock too I'm pretty sure and I have 100k on my 98...if the ride gets better then I'm happy

I just ordered the Zone 2" BB today from Allen at AOR. He is exteemely helpful! I got mine with the hydros and quick discos. I told him what I wanted to do and he steered me in the right direction. I already have 31 duratracs on my stock canyons. Can't wait to see how it turns out. If ur looking for a good all around 31 with an aggressive look, check out the Duratracs.

Good price, does the back window roll up and snap? This is a must for me...also, how's the noise compared to your old one??...I know sailcloth is the best but as long as noise doesn't get worse compared to what I'm used to now (factory top from 98 lol) then I'm happy!

top is pretty tight so no more noisey? no flapping if thats what you mean. I didnt want to fork out the money on the sail cloth. yes, back window rolls up and snaps just like factory. I found a frame and I am picking it up thursday. once the top is super tight i will let you know about noise. right now my left front doesnt close completely at the header making the left rear sag slightly.
