Thanks for the pictures everyone. I appriciate it. Think I am going to go with a 3" zone lift. If anybody has any pros or cons to that lift would appriciate the input. Or if you recommend another brand.

Just speaking from experience, if you do go with the Zone kit, get the upgraded nitro shocks. The standard ones don't last very long. Also, you might want to consider going with BDS. It's a bit more money but I changed from Zone to BDS springs and they rode much nicer on the street. The BDS coils are a bit lower spring rate so they ride a bit softer and let the shocks handle the ride better. Just my opinion though. The Zone kit is decent for the price.

Ive heard to stay awayfrom the nitro shocks due to their stiffness

I got the basic shocks, they work fine to me. unno: Then again I did drive around for a while on a busted shock before the lift.

Zone 3" Sus and Daystar 1" BL on BF Goodrich T/A 33's

I have the Nitro Shocks. Love the ride. Two of the older shocks I replaced with the Nitro's were bad so I can't really compare them to anything else.

Would you say it's a stiff ride?

No, I really like the ride. Better than the stiff ride I had with the Rancho rs5000's that were on before. I feel the nitro's absorb more road shock before it enters the cab. All in all I am very pleased with the zone set-up.

Guess I had better throw this in. I do have slight vibes since installing the lift.
I am doing a SYE and Double cardan drive shaft only because I do not want to drop my transfer case.

X2 I came from the same shocks before, and like the basic Zone's much better.
