There new adj arms have been very good for me. I am going on three years with mine. They have scratched (no gouges or dents) and I just touch up the scratches. I have not idea what Zone arms are like. I have OME shocks and happy with them.

They only have fixed arms. The combo lift uses stock arms.

does the zone lift kit do well on long drives ? And what's the difference between these two

I've driven 4 hours straight and it's all good. The first one is their 4" SL with fixed control arms. The second one is the one I prefer. The combo lift. 3" SL, 1.25" BL and a 1" MML for any vibes. You can add adjustable CA's, track bars, etc. when/if you want to later on. My was fine without them. I have a bunch of add-ons to my current Jeep. I think the combo lift rides smoother because of less steep CA angles.

bushings, and they dont, which can lead to other damage and is one of the reasons the 4" kit is not normally recommended

zone 4.25" combo and a Metal Cloak adj front track bar is a very common budget minded lift that allows for plenty of upgrades without wasting parts
