Zone 4" lift kit reviews?

I plan on doing the Zone 4" lift kit but havent seen anyone running it. Was wondering how good of a kit it is and if there are any major issues with it? Is it a good kit for the $700 it will cost me?

no, get the RE 3.5" kit for $729. For the little bit more, you'll have a WAY better ride.

MY BAD! I didn't read everything. Didn't realize you had a WJ. Purhaps the zone would be ok for starters...?

We discussed this a lot in the last few days. Try a search next time.

I have heard good and bad about them but have never bought anything from them so I don't have first hand experience.

I'd spend the extra $50 and go with IRO.

Just checked out that IRO kit. Looks really good. Im new to the off road community so cut me a bit of slack. I was a street guy, building fast cars not off-road rigs. But thanks for the recomendation.

I would almost say 10 out of 10 people would recommend IRO. 9 out of 10 at the least. I love my IRO lift.

Only getting fixed lower control arms with a kit is no good the way the Zone is set up. If you go the IRO route, get a rear a-arm spacer.

I have seen a few WJ guys buying the Zone kit and my friend with an XJ bought one and it has worked great, ZERO complaints. I actually put a call into them and talked with their sales and tech guys. They seem to be pretty cool and have good stuff. They are new, so give them some time to expand their options. They said once they get their name out there more they want to make another lift for the WJ and also more parts fopr the WJ suspensions. So they more we buy from them , the more options they will have, at a CHEAPER price....

just some food for thought.

99' WJ Limited- 4' IRO Lift, 32' BFG's on Moabs....
