A friend of mine put one on his JKU. He really likes it. He said he should have ordered the quick disconnects with it was his only complaint. For the money I have heard from others that they r good as well.

Installed the lift you are talking about on a friend's tj a few months back. Somehow everything went very smooth and we were done in a few hours. I wish he would hear me out on doing a tt next but that's a another battle. I'm very impressed with the ride quality for the money. When I get around to lifting, I will more than likely be going with zone.

I don't remember which it was exactly. 3" or 3.5" fairly easy install if you have decent tools. Just remember you can have the great lift in the world but if your tires are inflated incorrectly (too high or low) it can make your lift seem terrible.

For the money you can't beat it. I've done the 4.25" and a 4 " SL and all is good. Keep In mind it is a starter kit and there is much to be added. Great for someone wanting good looks and decent performance.

I just installed the 4" on my tj last night. It took two of us 7 hrs from start to finish. The kit was very good and I'm happy with the quality. The ride is firm, but very controlled and no vibration issues. I would recommend it!

I had the 4" lift installed in March with the nitro shocks and have no complaints. Granted I am a mall crawler though. Just put 35s on this week and it looks even better.

I've had the Zone 4.25" combo installed 3 years ago and have been happy with it. It does very well both on and off roading. The only thing I wish I would have gotten was the disconnects. I also had some squirrel issues on dry road, but a quick take back to the shop and a new steering stabilizer and now I'm golden. Yes I'd recommend. A lot of people will say its crap. But its all in the preference of the people who do run it. I've heard to not go with the nitro shocks as the ride will be rough. So I went with the standard hydro and am glad I did.

See I'm only doing mild off-roading mostly mall crawling and I just want it to look and perform good I was thinking if going with either the 4" or the 4.25 combo but how does the bumpers look on the combo with the body lift.. I mean does it look like the body is lifted and the bumpers of stock height?

the 4.25 combo is what you want. The body lift is not that noticeable and there is less involved in the shorter SL. Your TC drop will be less as well.

You are correct. You shouldn't need a SYE or new driveshaft with the Zone 4.25 inch Combination Lift. That's one of the best parts about it! The suspension portion is small enough to not cause any major geometry issues and the MML helps with vibrations. When you couple it with the small body lift you can clear 33" tires with no problem.

A 1.25" body lift isn't going to be too visible or distracting. Check out some of the pictures in the link and see what you think. There are some user submitted images on there as well to help you see what your rig will look like with that lift.

That kit will run you about $518 shipped to you door with the forum discount of 6%. Let me know if you have any questions at all and make sure you post up some pictures when you're done!

No need for the stabilizer unless yours is blown...of course a new Monroe is only about $25.

I ordered my kit via RockRidge on Ebay which had free shippping...helped keep the cost down.

4 25" Suspension Combo Lift Kit Zone Jeep Wrangler TJ LJ Rubicon 97 06 J25 J26 | eBay

But it sounds like Ryan has a slightly better deal.

I would highly recommend ordering your kit from Allen through the forum. I believe his screen name is AOR. I got a great deal on my 3 inch Zone lift from him. He's in the vendor section, just pm him and he'll take great care of you.

technically you don't have to get anything. It is recommended to get the MML, adjustable control arms, SYE with Cv driveshaft, adjustable TB for the front.
Just FYI there is a part in the directions where you have to re-drill the mounting hole for the trackbar. If you do not feel like you can do it the. Buy the adjustable track bar.

I did need anything else, as to parts. I did need to get a 13/32 drill bit. I was able to find the directions on line and had all of the tools ready before i started. Also make sure that you have tall jack stands. I have a set of 6 ton stands and I wish I would of went with the 12 ton. Not for the weight of the stands just for the height that they would go.
