Rough country body lift vs zone body lift

ROUGH COUNTRY BODY LIFT VS ZONE BODY LIFT

ok the rough country 1.25 body lift suggests the 1 inch motor mount plate to raise the motor to new location of radiator shroud and they said it gives a better angle to the rear drive line. This suggested part runs $54.95 adding to the cost of the body lift. Now the zone 1.25 body lift says it comes with a radiator lowering kit so the shroud is still even with fan of motor and does not affect angel of rear drive line. So what kit is better? Is it better to raise motor instead on lowering radiator? Also what about the rear drive line angle there talking about?

If you've got any suspension lift then go with the BL/MML combo.

RC 3.25 suspension + 1" MML + 1.25" BL = good combination.

Never heard/read anything about the radiator lowering kit but maybe thats just my noob shining through

Zone has a 4.25 combo kit that comes with a 3" suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, and a 1" motor mount lift.

Its kind of hard to find since its under a link for their 3" suspension kit and then you have to click the tab "combo packages".

http://zoneoffroad.com/product?ki=21&gr=-1

I can't even figure out how to link directly to it.

depends on what your after, but the mml is usually installed to correct a couple of issues made from both body and suspensionl lifts. for a body lift - you put on the mml so you dont have to mess with the radiator shroud and transfer case linkage. for suspension lift - a mml will help get rid of SOME of the rear driveline vibes you will get after the lift. it will ususally not correct all vibes, but it helps and CAN save you from putting on a transfer case lowering kit or SYE/CV.
