Getting new lift.BDS vs Zone
 
Do I'm getting my tax refund n decided I want a 3" lift and was going for BDS suspension but now I see for April, Zone has free upgrade to Nitro shocks with a lift kit purchase... Which one would you choose? Im so confused lol so many options.

It's pretty hard to beat the BDS rep/warranty......but if you're not going to really wheel it hard offroad, then I'd go w/ the one that maintained the best ride quality.

BDS quality and warranty cannot be beat. If you plan on wheeling your Jeep hard there isn't another spring I would trust to stand up to it.

Can't say I've ever even heard of the Zone lift kit. :s

Ya I'm still thinking BDS is better but idk

BDS! I have their 3.5" lift and loooooove it! Besides, with leaf springs, I'm told nitro shocks are really unneeded due to the spring stiffness anyway. If I had it to do over, I would have probably stayed with BDS 2" lift and gone SOA. But definitely get their boomerang extended shackles, looks awwweeeesome!

Kool. I'm worried about my tire size tho.,, what size r u running.., I have the 03 rubicon wheels with Wranglers 245/75/16 I think..

If you go SOA +2" your have 7"to8"of lift, that will not look good with your tires, 2" or 3" SUA will look great.
When you go SOA you open up a Whole new can of worms!

BDS makes Zone, but Zone does not have the same warranty that BDS does!
