Can't decide, I need some input and advice between zone or bds.

I have thrown around a few lift ideas and lurked jeep forum for a few months since I bought my tj.

I narrowed my lift down to 2 different options, I have the money saved up and I am ready to pull the trigger but I am torn between a 2 inch BDS spring lift with a 3/4 spacer in the front or a 3inch zone suspension lift?
I can't decide, and i need some help!!

It is not a heavy jeep with after market bumpers or a winch and it is also the 2.5 liter 4 cylinder.
I am open to doing a 1 inch motor mount and body lift combo with the bds lift.
I am going to be running 33 x 12.50s on some black steelies.
Any input on the pros and cons of each lift would be appreciated, pictures are always a bonus too.

Same parent company make both brands, I'd go with the Zone but both get good reviews for the $$, and you may still need the BL with 33's.

i agree that the price is right for both brands.
i think the zone is what i am leaning towards right now, would you recomend the 3/4 spacer for the zone to level the jeep?
thanks for advice.
