Zone Lift Kit - Anyone?

I have a 2000 TJ Sahara and wanted to put this lift kit on. http://www.rockridge4wd.com/product-p/znj1.htm I don't want anything too big. Has anyone put one of these on before and how was the install? It doesn't look too difficult. Any suggestions or tips on items I should pickup before I go at it?

That looks like a decent spacer lift. I have had a very similar lift before and I had no problems with it.

EDIT: Don't let that website fool you, $229.75 is normal retail price for that lift.

The Zone shocks ride very nice.I've had two of their 4" + lifts with the hydro shocks.Contact the vendor here for free shipping.
Here's an install writeup.

my TJ had the Zone 3" kitinstalled when I got it last year. It is fine, as far as I know, other then the PO did NOT install the bump stop extentions, so the shocks died quickly.

Hey Boogie, which vendor is best to order the zone. I think you sold me on the 4.25 combo. Also hydro or nitro shocks, i heard people say nitro is pretty firm? Adjustable track bar or use the relocating bracket. Not real worried about cost just want to do it right. Going to be a daily driver (40 miles a day) when I drive it and some mild 4 wheeling (for now).

I forgot what his screen name is on here.You could do a vendor search.I always bought the hydro shocks because they ride better on the street.The 4.25" kit comes with the rear track bar relocation bracket.I always re-drill the hole up front instead of buying an adjustable front track bar.It centers the axle perfectly and won't ever wallow out the hole (like the stories you here on here) if you keep the bolt tight.I use a lock washer on all of mine.

Shop around just like anything for the best deals. I contacted Zone and 2 other sellers on here ( not going to name).
Some offer free shipping, others offer great prices but twice the shipping and I just got a parts catalogue in the mail with the kit I was shopping around ( ZONE 3" suspension) for and there price beats everyone with free shipping. I don't get it but shop around....
