Zone 4.25'' Combo Lift!

I just got my tracking number and stuff and the lift should be here tomorrow and on my jeep by the end of the weekend! I'm pretty pumped and I will def post before / after pics

2'' Poly Lift to a 4.25'' Combo lift. 3'' Zone Suspension + 1.25'' Zone Body Lift

EDIT: After assembling and getting the lift on.. My brakeline ruptured and now the jeep is in the shop lol. I couldn't get the transfer case off either, so thats gotta get done at the shop as well. 15+ hours put into this suspension and many many many many many snapped bolts! :P

All in all this was a fun experience and a painful one haha. I really am proud of my Jeep and the hard work myself and my buddy put into it.

P.S. Being in the rust belt sucks!

love mine and with the MML I don't have to use the T-case drop. Rides like a dream and no vibes. Only regret is not getting the quik-disconnects.

The MML was on backorder so i'm going to have to use the Tcase drop. I think it'll be fine though. I got my money back on the MML.

For regretting the quick disconnects, making your own is very simple or remove the sway bar as I have done, just a little more body roll but nothing extreme. And the articulation is immensely improved. Plus this is a much cheaper route than buying quick disconnects

agree'd schmidty3513.. Im going to Home Depot this weekend for some ideas. Though I have been looking at the Currie Anti-Rock swaybar and im starting to like it more and more.

A little more body roll? Its a dangerous amount of body roll. I have JKS disconnects and when going fast off road I reconnect them. On road that is flat out dangerous not having a sway bar. You will learn when you flip it.

I bought the same lift kit should be here any day now. The MML was backordered as of last week but they said they should be in this week. Hope I don't end up waiting for weeks to get these parts in I want to install next week. I ordered mine with a front disconnect too. I had them omit the shocks and got Rancho 9000XL's.

I work in a dealership full on technicians and many have or have had jeeps and all recommended disconnecting for off road purposes and not a single one said it would be dangerous on road. Just an experience of a little more body roll. Unless you take turns at excessive speed you won't roll. Whether you have the sway bar connected or not. The sway bar prevents SWAY not rollers.
