Zone off road lift!

Does anyone have any input on the zone brand 3" suspension lift? I have a set if 32x11.50x15's in order and should be here in a few days and I am in the market for a lift. I may also go with the 2" coil spacer lift. Up in the air right now!

Zone 3" lift is a great lift for the money. Can't beat it.

Just bought their 2" spacer and shocks. Going to use that for a while then replace springs when Jeep gets a bit older. I am installing tomorrow so I will take pics and let you know what i think

I just installed the zone 3 inch kit on my jeep. Love it! Only thing id recommend is an adjustable front track bar to add on. Makes life easier (prevents drilling a new hole and possible damage to the mount). Also installed a 2 inch spacer on my buddies lj a few weeks ago. An easier install for sure but if i were you id get the zone 3 inch. Its a great kit for a great price. Im very happy with mine. Plus the new coils will ride a bit better than coil spacers

How do you find she handles with the body lift? I think I might throw an inch of body lift under mine just to get a total of 3" lift

Definately not a cadillac.. I mean it is a jeep after all hahah... BUT that being said its definately not bad at all. Many people on here add 1-1.25 body lifts and have no problemos. I say go for it

Thanks for all the Info guys, I ordered the 3" last night I will be running 32" tires for awhile nice to see the pics with a Lil busy lift I can always add that later when I want to run 33's. by the way those pics if your jeeps are awesome! What is the benefit of running the adjustable trac bar versus the drop bracket that is in the kit??

Well the zone lift you bought has a relocation bracket for the rear track bar which works perfect. Its what im using for mine. The front track bar requires you to drill a new hole in the bracket and can weaken the bracket for potential breakage. Youll need to beef it up somehow. Theres threads on here about beefing it up to make it work and not worry about it breaking. I just bought the front adjustable track bar frkm rubicon express to avoid all these issues and play it safe. It also cut down on the install time haha cuz i didnt have to drill a new hole and all. Not necessary but i like it and would recommend it although many others have drilled the hole and are perfectly fine.

Ok so I take it I can buy a beefed up trac bar like you did from rubicon express and it will fit on mine even though I have the zone lift kit being installed??

Front adjustable track bar is what you need. Adjustable is they key. For like 0-3" lifts. If you decide to take that route. Alot of people use jks brand as well.

No problem.. If your unsure or have any other questions let me know!
Also go ahead and spray down tge bolts youll need to remove for the lift with a pb blaster so itll soak and. Do it once or twice maybe 3 times while it ships
