Zone Off Road 2" lift.

Anyone running this set up? http://zoneoffroad.com/product?ki=37&vi=385
did you have to get a front or rear track bar or both.
did the kit include a drop bracket for the rear trackbar?
do you need spacers to run larget tires with this set up.

I'm running 32's on my Rubi.
I'll go to 33's when I need new tires. so it's not really a problem right now.

I tried the search feature but, came up empty.
sorry if this question has been asked before.
thanks in advance.

-Joe

i've never heard anything about them, but they seem to put a lot of hype into what is fundamentally a set of hockey pucks and some shocks. i don't think any track bar hardware is necessary. price is right, but i wonder how those shocks ride...you may be better keeping the stockers in there.

I don't have that specific kit, but they are all basically the same

I have a 2.5" kit- I did not do anything with the trackbars. Yes my axles shifted (to the passenger side in the rear, to the drivers side in the front), but it has not affected the handling. And with the stock BFG tires, you had to look really hard to see the difference. I have since gone to 35" tires, and the shift is much more noticeable to the eye simply due to the wider tire. So I'll eventually be changing the trackbar situation.

As for the spacers with larger tires. That really has nothing to do with the height, that has to do with rubbing the air damn and suspension thus needing to move the tires further out... If you're only going to 33", you probably won't need to worry about this (depending on how wide the tire is though).

Hey guys! Zone has just signed up as a supporting vendor to the board!

With the 2" lift, the axles shift only a minimal amount, so track bar mods are not necessary. You should be ok fitting 33's with this lift on your stock rubi wheels. Thank you for your interest in our products CreepJeep!

Do you mean on the kit pictures? The icon doesn't change, but if you click on the picture a larger one will come up. Thanks for the input!
