Zone 2 inch then add 1inch lift boomerang shackles to it. It will get you off the ground a little but and still work on the trails

I have a Zone 2" and got 2.5-3" from it. I couldn't be happier with the ride I got, compared to all the others I have installed. If/when I go SOA, I will not have too much lift in the springs. I also have a 3" body lift as of now that was free so I used it.
I am not a fan of long shackles myself. Rough Country and Zone are the most affordable and complete lifts I have found. Zone has much better springs. Good luck

Rough country is backed by a lifetime warranty as zone is not

Warranty is not everything. I run an hvac service dept. And as warranty may sell some things check into BDS which is who makes the springs for Zone. Then ride in a YJ with each lift, you will change your mind.
I lift trucks in my spare time and know the difference in quality v.s warranty

Bds and zone share many of the same parts from distributors but zone is not owned by bds. I have been very happy with my Rubicon express products but when I had my yj I had a skyjacker lift on it. It did the job too. As a piece of advice, and that's it, save a little longer and buy a quality lift. If that's not in the cards pull the trigger on something you can afford. You can learn a great deal from working on fixing cheap lift problems and that's valuable info too, I've learned a lot that way.

Very trite
Seriously......? There is no need to be like that.
I answered the question with knowledge of both products and personal experiences from both brands mentioned. BDS makes the springs for Zone and they are of much higher quality. This is a fact.
I have 6 Jeeps (various models) and all have lifts. RE and RC, but I have yet to find a better quality lift for a YJ for the money than the Zone 2" and 4" lifts.
I do not work for them or get money from them of any sort for posting positive things about them. I am trying to help someone, why you want to be rude I do not understand. This site is much better than that.
RubiconExpress makes awesome lifts and I install a lot of them, but I did not mention them due to the original question in the original post. Price is a big factor from what I got out of reading it. Zone and RC are the closest in price for complete lifts and that is what I was trying to give info on

Who even uses the the word "trite" anyways.

Word of the day?

I have had my smart phone make me feel not so smart a few times. I am use to some of the other sites and how some people talk so much trash. This is my favorite Jeep site out there.

Did you ever figure-out what kind of lift you are going with? With the YJ there are so many choices over all, but not so many cheap ones
