Decision. Zone 3" vs quadratech 2.5".

Are jeep is a 2001 Sahara. It is a fun weekend truck that isn't going to get any serious off-road Ing just driving down dirt roads occasionally. We will be running 33 x 10.5 tires. Leaning toward the zone but wanting to know your opinions on quality of the two.

For a bit more than the Zone you can get the 3" BDS and get their warranty, which is what I did, although I am told BDS makes Zone so it should essentially be the same depending on what options you add.

I believe the quadratech lift is made by Skyjacker and just relabeled, I had a skyjacker long arm kit on my old JK, and while it did the job I wasn't blown away by the quality or ride.

It came down to budget and the reviews/research that I did. I (my wife) wanted to stay under $1k, and with an adjustable trackbar, JKS quicker disconnects and a couple things I came in under budget.

You'll shoot yourself if you get the quadracrap lift

If you get the Zone 3" kit, order the 1" Zone MML kit as well so you don't have to install the T/C drop.

Why not the TC drop that comes with the 3" kit? I'm 3/4 of the way through the back axle installation of the Zone 3" kit right now.

Because you lose belly clearance with the T/C drop. If you offroad at all, you don't want your skid to hang up on terrain. A 1" MML will straighten out your rear driveline so you don't get u-joint vibrations... and you keep your belly clearance.

I just finished the rear of my Zone 3", last night. Going to do the TC drop, tonight.

I figure it's an easy thing to install/remove so I can always go to the MML later on. Without a body lift I'm told you need to trim the fan shroud a little bit. Just a FYI.

Just have to drill new mounting holes in the fan shroud, pretty simple.
