Don't really hear too many complaints with the BDS shocks either. If you are installing it yourself ,just make sure to set your alignment/steering wheel after lift.|

|Freddybeans||So I could keep it cheap with just shocks and springs at 2 inches and the MML and BL and put some miles on it to decide if it the bight I want.|

|jrussblues||On a 2" lift it doesn't pull the axle off center enough to affect performance. After 2" you will need to look into other options.|

|Freddybeans||So would it be better to use the ome rear track bar relocation bracket or something like that? And I wouldn't need anything in the front? I thought if you reused the stock on you had to do drilling, could of swore I read that somewhere|

|jrussblues||Also, zone is not owned by bds, they use some of the same distributors for their parts.|

I have a jks rear, it was fine on 2" of lift but not really needed. It binds on larger lifts. I had a bds track bar for the front for a while and had no issues with it. Keep in mind that most of the track bars aftermarket will require drilling on stuff.
You won't know if you will need a sye until you install the lift. Its best to plan on it though from a finance standpoint. Most likely a 2" will not need a sye though.

With the zone would I need a tc drop or a sye and shaft?
Also is it worth added adjustable track bars front and rear such as jks ones.
I'm kinda feeling like doing
Bds springs 2 inch
Jks body lift 1.25 inch
M.o.r.e. motor mounts 1 inch lift
Jks front and rear adjustable track bars

You may want to wait and see about the bracket. With a 2" lift it typically does not need to be addressed but you will want to have a track bar on there.
On 2" lifts you really don't want to bother the arms, the factory stamped ones will serve you well and flex as much as you will need them to.
As far as the front end is concerned you will need an alignment.
I ran a similar set up for a while and it served me very well off road. Cheers and enjoy your lift.

|Rpkittle||For $499 shipped from Baseline 4x4, you can do the zone 4.25 combo lift. Thats a 3" suspension lift, 1.25 bl, and 1" MML. From what I hear, Zone is owned(or even made) by BDS.|

Ready to buy my lift.... I think
K so I think my plan changed again. I really need to go with something since I get to look at my tires and rims sitting on the floor everyday.
I'm now thinking I will do bds 2 inch kit with jks 1.25 BL and MML.
I think I will need a rear track bar bracket or do I need a track bar?
Also do I need anything for the front end.
I plan to upgrade to new arms later. Are 5100s that much better then the shocks that come with the bds kit?
The goal is to make room to fit my 33 by 12.5s and still have a decent dd/ weekend warrior.
Sorry for all the first timer questions but gotta start somewhere.
