Price: $529.00
Pros: Great Lift for the Price, ride seems very good much better then stock
Cons: None Yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This was my 1st lift kit, so it was a great learning experience for me.
It took longer then expected time to install, but that was okay, I wanted to
make sure it was done right.
I thought the Instructions were ok, but seemed somewhat vague at times to
me. Im sure once a person has done one lift on there own, the next one will
be much faster.
I was impressed with the quality of the parts for the price compared to the
other lift kits out there.
I did alot of research on the forums and Internet, went with Zones 4" lift
the reviews were very high, especially for the price.
I am very happy with the ride so far after about a month.

Cons: n/a
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I'm installing the 4" kit on my '04 this coming weekend and will follow up to let you know how it turns out and what it performs like.

Just curious for anyone who has installed this kit. I know the kit doesn't come with a dropped pitman arm and the manufacturer told me that it's not required or recommended due to possible steering bump. I was curious if you ever considered using a dropped pitman arm or not and how the steering geometry is working out without one?

Price: $500.00
Pros: Great price, includes lower control arms, build quality appears to be very high, ride quality is good.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great price on a very complete kit - only things I might add in the future are an adjustable front trackbar and a new drive shaft. Everything seems to be very high quality, beefy lower control arms are a nice inclusion in the kit for the price, installation very straightforward. Ride quality is great - a little stiff but still settling, and I'd already say it's an improvement over the stock Rubicon shocks & springs. Installing the kit eliminated the speed wobble that I'd been facing for the last year or so. The extra clearance, flex, and room for 33" tires has definitely improved my offroad capability. Aesthetically, the new stance with the lift and tires looks great. Zone Offroad seems to have great customer service as well, they've been very prompt in responding to my emails. I'm very happy with this kit so far - it's fun on & offroad and I've gotten a lot of comments on the new ride!

No cons so far - I still need to put a lot more miles on the kit to know how durable it is, but the build quality seems great, everything looks sturdy, so I'm not too worried about it. Giving it an excellent for now because of how satisfied I am with the kit price, contents, and build quality, the only thing that would lower this in the future would be a lower durability than expected.

Approx. 500 miles on the kit at the time of this review, maybe 25 hrs offroad use. Will update on durability in a year or so.

Price: $529.00
Pros: Price, fast shipping, excellent customer service, very well designed and well built.
Cons: STIFF springs and shocks.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought my kit from for $529 shipped. They were very prompt and appreciative. I called Zone directly with a question and they were responsive and helpful.

My first impression of the kit was WEIGHT! The tubular control arms are super heavy and greasable. The kit doesn't include a adjustable track bars but when installed properly it centers up perfectly and handles excellent without them. It went on pretty easy but took longer than I expected. Enlarging the rear upper track mounts to set the rear pinion angle was the only real PITA in the installation.

I ended up with at least 4.5 inches of lift from the 4 inch kit. After aligning the front end to 1/8 toe in, the kit has great manners on the road. The springs are much stiffer than stock and you will feel every bump in the road unless you cut some air out of your tires. The stiff ride makes the kit disappointingly harsher than stock on gravel roads but those same stiff springs make your tall jeep handle every bit as well as a stock jeep in the corners. Im incredibly impressed with its handling on the road.

Id recommend a SYE. The transfer case drop went in easy enough and I did not need to install the transfer case shift linkage relocation bracket. However i did get shifter interference which made 2nd and reverse difficult to engage. I removed the neoprene sleeve between the two shifter boots and relocated the lower boot and console back 1/2 inch which cured that problem. I do have some very minor driveline vibe at low rpm in tall gears but youd probably never notice it unless you were looking for it.

Ive put about 500 miles on it in a couple weeks with zero problems. Ive only wheeled briefly since then and with the sway bars hooked up so, i cant really speak to articulation.

I think its a great kit for the money, especially if you spend more time on road, than off.

Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I had the Zone 4" lift installed and only have good things to say. The mechanic commented on the great quality of the parts (I hear they are the same as the more expensive BDS lift kits). The ride is much better than I expected. It handles well on road / highway, but shines off road. Easily accommodates my 33x12.5x15 tires and wheels. I get no vibrations and do not have a SYE kit installed. Highly recommended.

Price: $500.00
Pros: complete kit with heavy duty greaseable lca's
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great kit from a great company with outstanding customer service. I was lucky enough to do a side by side comparison of zone and rough country and the Zone suspension was the winner hands down. On road the zone was a much nicer all around ride and was in no way jarring like RC. I have had the suspension on for 1.5 years and aside from re-torqueing once after a few hundred miles and regularly greasing it I have had no problems. Offroad the kit performs very well and has handled plenty of abuse and flexes great with the sway bar disconnected. I have installed the kit on my 06 rubi, 285/75/16's on moabs and at full lock they rub the lca's. I was fortunate enough to skip the t-case drop and have no vibes due mainly to the fixed yoke on mine. Before I installed the kit I made sure to clear coat the shocks and damper with several coatings of rattle can clear and after an Iowa winter(salt) they are rust free and look like new. I added a 1.25 spacer to the front to compensate for my winch. I am very happy with this kit.

Cons: Flex Rough
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It is a good lift kit for the price, the ride is definitely very rough. You can feel every bump in the road lol but that is fine with me. My lift is actually a 4.5 inch lift not a 4 inch but it is a great lift and it is alright off road.

Price: $529.00
Pros: Lots to mention but perhaps the biggest deal: New, greasable lower control arms made from 1-3/4" x 1/4" wall DOM tubing
Cons: Nothing really worth noting. A windshield sticker comes with the kit. So if you're not a fan of those beware. :)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: THE KIT
I'm a first-timer to Wranglers and was able to install it in 1.5 days with some help from a buddy. Quality parts and good fitment. The engineering seemed smart too - no welding involved, drilling kept to a minimum. Organization was remarkable. Everything needed (fasteners, bolts, washers, screws, etc) truly came with the kit and were presorted into separate baggies and labeled for each step of the install. It even came with loctite.

I'm sitting a little bit more than 4-inches taller now. The ride feels different from factory. Not 'stiff' but seems to have less body roll than before and less brake dive. I can feel the articulation.

I'm able to crawl the malls now with the best of 'em. Kidding. The kit is holding up great so far both on and offroad.

Pros: Complete kit. New lower control arms. Great customer service. Good instructions.
Cons: None at this time.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've only had prior experience with BDS lift kits which I thought were a great quality kit with a great ride. With that being said I know Zone is owned by the same company as BDS. The Zone kit is a complete kit that had every thing I needed to complete the job. The ride is close to if not the same as the BDS kit. It is a little firmer ride than stock which is a good thing in my opinion. There is less body roll and brake dive. Over all I like the kit and would recommend it to any one looking for a quality kit that doesn't want to break the bank.

Price: $500.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've had the kit installed now for a few months and several off road trips. Haspin Acres in central Indiana a few times and couple of mud boggs. I've had no breaks with the suspension. The springs feel good not to stiff or soft. The only issue I have with the kit is my shocks are already showing rust and I haven't been through a mid-west winter yet with them. I would give the kit an 8 now, only minus the rust on the shocks.
