Zone Offroad 2in Body Lift

ZONE OFFROAD PRODUCT JEEP JK 2" BODY LIFT #J9210 : eBay Motors (item 370250935790 end time Jan-23-10 10:45:04 PST)

Any problems with this kit before I buy it? I love the price, and want it to clear bigger tires. The bumper relocation bracket is a plus. Will there be any other noticable gaps? What are some body lift problems? I've read up and I have an automatic so I wont have to worry about the shifting problem. Also, how noticable will it be?

Thanks

Zone makes great quality products. I wouldn't hesitate buying anything from Dave. Dave is a great guy and runs a tight ship... Plus every part is 100% USA made.

I've done both the RC 1.25 Body Lift and the Zone 2 inch. RC was much easier. with the Zone, you have to disconnect and remove too many things under the hood.. It just comes down to how comfortable you are. You can look on the online instructions for both to see what is involved. I have the zone 2 inch below with 35 inch tires:

Im comfortable doing the Zone lift, its just that I'm choosing them just because they sell a rear bumper relocater.
Do they sell one for the RC 1.25?

I have the Zone lift and it was an easy install. I didnt remove half the things they said to remove durring the install i was just carefull as to not stretch anthing. The rear bumper relocates but the front doesnt so you will have a 2" gap below the front grill. Very easy install, no problems afterward.

No Bumper bracket with the RC. I actually did the 2 inch zone with a manual tranny knowing I would have to modify. Wasnt too hard, the metal around the shifter was easy to bend and snip to allow 2, 4, 6, and especially reverse to engage. I never replaced the inner boot, as that still got in the way after mods.

Is the gap in the front too noticable with the 2in BL? I already have the RC 2.5in BB. Does anyone have a picture of the front gap? Idk if i like the visibility of the frame on the side.

I like the look of that, the front isnt too bad. The frame visibilty on the side ive never been a fan of. I can see my whole frame from the side on my 2500 Sierra and I hate it.

So I have to decide between the RC $99 1.25in BL, and live with a gap in my rear bumper.
Or the Zone $119 2in BL, and pay $50 for the rear bumper relocater.

i like it. good luck with your choice, i knew i wouldnt be able to put up with a gap between the rear bumper and fender, thats why i went with 2" and relocation bracket.
