Did you do a search? I have seen threads on this in the recent past.

Another cheap lift in the long list that includes bds, skyjacker, rubicon express,ranchero, super lift, pro comp, rough country, ect.
Please do a search for photos, there are tons of them out there. You are really not going to be able to tell anything about a lift from a photo.

If you learned something new today, you had a good day.

In my area they have the 3" installed for $1000. But is rather get a TF 2.5 for half the price and do the work myself

Well I was wrong, you can defiantly tell the loss of wheelbase in that photo. see how the rear wheel look like it is too far forward, running an incomplete lift without new control arms causes this. This jeep would look much better with a simple leveling kit with those small tires.

With 35s, you will definitely see the effect of short wheel base...to make the wheel fit, you might want to consider some rear control arms IMO.

No no no, I'd love to see some pictures of the pinch seam exploding the rear wheels upon flex!

Oh' my goodness, that is the largest photo I've seen in a long time. How on earth was that allowed to upload?

Edit: thank you for fixing it.

I use imageshack to host my pictures, I guess I didn't resize it.

I have a Zone 3" lift. It has been installed for about 15,000 miles. It is a fantastic lift for the money. Driving dynamics are very good, almost stock feeling. I love this lift and do not regret it one bit.
