You said you got 4 inches of lift. is that measured with your additional tire height or strictly life? I assume you mean both since you had them done at the same time. I gained about 3.5 inches initially on the springs/shocks and 1.5 from tires (32-29)divided by two =1.5 so 5 inches, settle out to about 4.5 in the rear and 5.25 in the front
Nope, i meant just from lift...with the tires as well i'm sitting at exactly 5.5 inches of difference with the lift and tires vs the stock height. With just lift i was at 4 inches

Phil05LJ It's lookin good! Funny that you say it rides better than stock... My TJ had a BB on it and rode great, this Zone kit with the regular shocks that came with it seems stiffer, but not by much. I went with 33s and installed front flatty fenders, I doubt my OE fenders would have survived when flexed out when disconnected...

i also LOVE these 32's and am glad i got these over the 33x12.5's

The 33's are nice but i like the gap i have now as well as how they're tucked under my flares (i'll post a pic)

Since i had a buddy put the kit on for me, i cant be 100% sure if he put the tcase drop on or not, but he gave me every part after the install and everything was used out of the zone kit so i'd go with a yes...i never actually checked, i was too excited haha

I agree...absolutely love the combo!!! I'll get some nice pics taken tomorrow...

and yes it does need a wash and wax haha...clean up the windows and rims as well!

I LOVE the ride...its much better than stock and handles great. I have absolutely zero regrets with this kit and would recommend it to anyone looking...

I personally dont think you need to upgrade the shocks but that could be just me...rides great
Your tcase skid was dropped.

GoldenSahara00 It rides pretty well I would say. I would upgrade the shox, I have the stock and they are slightly stiff. but do fine for me. rides better than stock in my opinion. as for flex it is decent but I havent gotten it disconnected yet so, I have yet to comment on that. its not gona flex like a long arm thats for sure haha.

My new lift and tires are finally on

Whats up everyone!!!

Well, i finally pulled the trigger and picked up a lift and tires...lift came in about 2 weeks ago but since the tires i wanted werent in stock, i had to order them and postpone putting the lift on!

Anyway, got her done today and i'm absolutely pumped with the result...

let me know what you think!

These were just some quick shots i took as soon as i got home...It was too hot this afternoon so i didnt get the wash and wax done, but i'll do that tomorrow and post more pics for sure!!!

Here we are!
