i had a couple loose lug nuts. check that asap. sounds stupid to forget, but it happens...
also instead of buying a kit, i hear that you can just add a few washers to gap out the transfer case. that is if you have a small lift i think.

|david.pratt802||Yea the brackets a pain .. I took a grinder to the original bracket cause the rust was so bad .. my drill sucks and keeps dieing so thats where I stopped tonight .. can you upload pics of yours ?|

|OrdieCPO||Just installed the zone 4.25 on my 99 TJ last weekend, it was very easy. The hardest part was putting the new relocation bracket in for the rear sway bar. Not much room to work with. The drag arm was a little tricky to disconnect from the pitman arm, if you lightly tap the pitman arm it should just fall right off( trial and error). Let me know if you have any questions, you will have to adjust your steering wheel it will be about 180 degrees out.|

Alright it's been a while since I updated y'all on what I went with ... zones 4 1\4 in combo lift. Pro comp 15x10 with -47 backspace debating on returning the 1.25 in wheel spacers (haven't installed them yet) went for the upgraded nitro shocks, quick disconnect links, and stabilizer. So far I have the body lift in along with the mml. Pretty simple. Suspension lift is tomorrow and maybe get the wheels on.

I would definitely do some more research on lifts. I highly recommend anything else except Rough Country. I have had a RC 2.5" lift on for two years now, just about 15,000 miles (not my DD) and it sags terribly. To be honest it probably sits at about 1" of lift right now..maybe a little more if im lucky. You can see the front coil springs are literally smushed, just at normal ride height.
It's well worth it to save up a little bit more and buy a more durable, long lasting lift. Like others said previously Rough Country is cheap for a reason. Cheap products equal low quality parts, that will have to be replaced sooner than you expect.

|david.pratt802||also .. i went for the upgraded nitro shocks .. and quick disconnect links|
|05-27-2013 06:47 PM|
|david.pratt802||cool deal .. well the lift is in the mail along with the wheels .. deff running 33s on 15s .. surely will post pics of install along with final pics .. any other advice for installing will be much appreciated .. THANK YOU ALL FELLOW JEEPERS !!|

|rdock31||A lot of people suggest using a block of wood to help jack it up and not damage anything. Do one side at a time, and don't completely tighten till you're done.|
|05-27-2013 01:55 PM|
|david.pratt802||reading through the instructions for the body lift portion .. seems rather difficult to do in my home garage .. any ideas for jacking it up and what not ?|
|05-26-2013 04:29 PM|
I like my skyjacker 2.5" kit with a 1" body lift. I run 33's no problem. I have the nitro shocks and rides better than my buddies ome. His is a 6.5" lift though
I have no problems with skyjacker, and theyre a reasonable, middle of the line price. Just my .02

|david.pratt802||I just bought the 4.25 .. cant wait for it to get here ... I plan on running goodyear duratracs .. 33x12.50 on procomp 15x10s with a 1.5 spacer .. think it will rub anywhere ?|

|david.pratt802||MUCH appreciated advice on the lift. I checked out OME .. a little out of the price range. But zone makes one I like 4" TJ Suspension System J10/J11 .. Now for tires and wheels? I went into Goodyear and they showed me a set of 315/70r17 ... nice tires and Im willing to put em on .. just for wheels ? I cant really find any 10 in wide rims ? any suggestions ? would theses tires be too big for just a 4 in lift?|

That being said, why not look into the Zone 4.25" Combo Kit. It comes with everything you need to install it on your Jeep and have it run great. The kit includes a 3" suspension lift along with a 1.25" Bl and a 1" MML to correct your drive line angle. It runs about the same price as the RC and is an awesome lift kit.
I hope this helps!

lift, you should have everything in the kit necessary to run the xseries lift, the others mentioned above are ideal, but could conceivably break yer wallet since they are not absolute necessities to "drive" your rig lifted with said kit.
i myself bought a bare bones 4" zone kit, and eventually did all of the additions that rdock mentioned(and i mean all of them), but remember all those things can be done in time (since its a $2k upgrade) thas all im sayin

|Water Dog||Or check out the Zone 4.25 combo lift if your budget won't get you the OME.|
