Can't wait to see the progress I'm just about to pull the trigger on the same lift.

I have the 3" and for the money and warranty I am very satisfied!! Have 33s but once I gear up I am putting 35s and probably going higher. Easy lifts to instal and the only lifts with decent English instructions. You will love zone.

Suspension. I have done a body lift and it's so not worth it. At least for me. Nothing but problems. I know allot of guys with small body lifts but nothing bigger than 1.25 and not having problems. Plus I hate the look. ( 2 cents) Around 500 and it's all under warranty but the shocks. If you tow and you sag your coils they are replaced for free. They are great to deal with and I could not be happier with their product. After I did mine everyone wanted one. Wish I would of done 4 " now

In my opinion, I'd prefer the 4" Zone instead of a 3". 1 more inch for almost the same price doesn't get any better than that.

This is the zone 4.25 lift. Its a 1.25 body lift, 1 inch mml and 3 inch suspension. I upgraded to the nitro shocks and adjustable front track bar. I have read good things about it and I need nothing else to keep drive line angles good.

So lets say someone buys the 4" Zone lift. What else would they need to buy to get on the road and not lose any reliability?

Would the 3" kit be cheaper, because there isn't anything else that needs to be bought?

Once you go above 3" in lift you're gonna start to look into getting an SYE and longer drive shafts, adjustable control arms, & track bars.

Let's not forget, most of these are probably highly recommended on just about any lift but 4" seems to be right about the cut off of where it gets pretty much mandatory and expensive to do RIGHT.

Zone's 3" kit is a fairly decent kit if you don't mind losing an inch of ground clearance due to the 1" tcase drop that's supplied with the kit.

So a 3" zone lift used for on a DD that may see some light wheeling shouldn't need anything not included in the kit?

^ what he said about the slip yoke but just because you drop the t case don't be discouraged. The best thing you can do is look at them and decide what's gonna fit you. I would pay the extra money and get a adjustable front trac and be careful on the stock rear shock mounting hardware. I snapped every bolt back there and I am in the south away from salt and what not from snow. 30 mins with a air hammer and I was good to go after. But it was tight and a pain in the ars

I actually already have a lift of some sort installed by the pervious owner. I'm not sure what type or size, but the shock I starting to leak and squeek, so I figured I'd just replace the whole thing.

My understanding is a slip yoke eliminator or new rear drive shaft. Possibly brake lines too. There is a ton of info on the forum about what all is needed. That's why I went with the 4.25 kit

Zone 4.25" with 35's

Here is my rig with a newly (last week) installed Zone 4.25" Combo lift and 35's. I was very happy with it and pretty easy to install.

Did you buy the TJ Cam alignment kit? Can you educate me what this is?

Do your 35s rub? The kit says biggest is 33s.

I have the 3" lift in my shop. Going on next week. I bought the cam alignment kit. The rep I spoke with at the York Jeep show said to look at my cam bolts. If they are centered you will need the kit in order to be able to get your alignment back once the life is put on. There was another fabricator nearby that confirmed what he said. Spoke to a lot of people that day who have had the Zone for some time and are very pleased with ride.

The ride is not bad and it still handles well on and off road. I really like mine. Just unpin the disconnects and let it Flex
