I installed a 4" zone couldn't be happier. Little vibe but it could be my tires too. I don't plan on getting the sye or ds anytime soon. I do plan on installing a motor mount lift and using washers for the transfercase drop. Its a good affordable lift

I installed the Zone Combo lift also. I had to run the 3/4" transfer case drop and 4 washers to get rid of most of the vibes, also had the MML installed.

I just installed a SYE/CV driveshaft and it is smooth now. It also has better throttle response at high speeds and I don't have to downshift when I'm going up hills. I can get it up to 65 mph pretty quick when getting on the highway also.

There is no way I would ever put a lift on another Jeep over 2" without having a SYE installed first. You can see what I installed in my build thread below.

You'll need more than new brake lines if you disconnect your track bar.

Installed the Zone 3 inch lift recently. Have the kits TC drop with 2 additional washers on each bolt. Have vibs under hard acceleration still. Trying to decide between a MML or SYE and double cardan rear drive shaft. If I go the DC drive shaft route will I need anything other than adjustable UC arms?
