I called Dave over at Zone Offroad (Who is VERY knowledgeable and an all-around good guy!!) and told him my intentions of stuffing some 35's under my 97TJ, and was curious if he would be interested in putting together a package for me similar to the 4.25" combo that he offered on his website. He told me he would, but was unsure if the driveline angles would be alright with a 4" suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, and 1" Motor Mount lift. I told him I would take the chance on having to play with adding/taking off pieces to get things optimal, or possibly needing a SYE kit.
I received my package about 3 days after ordering (SUPER fast shipping!) in unharmed packaging! Everything came in great condition. So that weekend my brother and I decided to have some fun. It was my first lift-kit I had ever installed and it went on about as smoothly as it could have. The install instructions were perfect. Very easy to follow. (If you can't figure it out, read the instructions, right?! )
Once everything was installed (4"Suspension, 1.25" BL, 1" MML, and TC drop kit) the drivelines looked good, and the road test proved that it was going to work. No vibes even around 75 or 80!
The suspension rides smooth on and off-road. Good movement and "cushion" (as I like to call it) when hitting bumps. My ultimate test was out on our hunting lease's dirt road (a corn feld) leading to the back of the property.... at 40mph! Rode VERY well! (Much better than my brothers '93 Toyota Pickup with a 4" ProComp susp. lift)
I have been VERY impressed with the ride, quality and everthing related to this job and product. Attached are some pictures post-lift and of the rear driveshaft. If anyone is considering a lift kit by these guys, I say GO FOR IT! You can't beat the quality or, better yet, THE PRICE! Would I purchase again if I were looking for a package like this? YOU BET YOUR @$$ I would! Just a way to help us JEEP people from "Just Emptying Every Pocket!!"

Overall a really good product. Produces a stable ride, even on highway at speeds over 65 very stable.
