Zone Offroad 3 in lift

Installing the zone 3 inch lift this weekend. I am excited but also nervous, beacuse this is my biggest mod yet. Has anyone had any problems with this lift as far as install? When I called to order it the company was really great, and it seems like they have really good customer service. I will put some pics up when its done.

Good luck with the install. Take your time, I've read a lot of good things about this kit on other forums.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I have a good friend that is going to help, that knows what he is doing. I haven't heard anything bad about the lift either only good things. So I am really excited to see how easy/hard it is to install.

I just installed the zone 3" lift this morning. Took me about five hours by myself with a jack and jackstands. Everything is really straight forward and I didn't run into any issues whatsoever. The jeep drives and handles great, as good or better than stock. It's a great kit you won't be dissapointed.

The lift install went extremely smooth. It took roughly 5 hours to install. I did take pictures I have just been to lazy to put them up I will definitely have some up by tomorrow night. You should have came up it was just me and another guy it was a blast. Im thinking about tearing it apart and doing it again just for fun... just kidding. I would highly recommend this lift to anyone that wants a quality product, but does not have a lot of money to spend.

I will get some pics up very soon. Next up new bumpers and tires. They are looking kinda wimpy with the lift!

Yeah the shocks are gas, they come painted white and I used red boots. It looks really sharp.

Yeah I talked to dave when I initially ordered the lift. He was super cool, I will definitely order more parts from them. It was really cool that they have free shipping.

I've had the ZONE 3" lift for 4 months now, great on the road, smoother down the highway, softer ride driving on two lane twisties, a little more "lean angle" but only slightly. Their springs are progressive wound, so I can drive it just as fast on the pavement, just a bit softer.
Quality stuff with no degragation in spring height, now I need the 35" to make it right!

Cheers
Mark
