Zone vs. Rough Country

I have just purchased my first jeep. It's a 1997 tj 4.0 5spd and am I casual off roader. I am debating between the zone 4"lift or the RC 4" kit. Zone is $529 and the rc one is $499. The tj currently has 2 inch coil spacers and 31" bfg all terrains. Anybody have any advice on which kit to go with?

From what i understand, zone is basically the cheap version of BDS, and they get supplied with some of the same stuff. That being said, BDS makes good stuff. For the small increase in price, I would take the Zone.

I am running an RC 2.5 and it is a decent lift, but I would try the zone
