I really want to know about ride quality... Is it smooth? Better than stock?
What year is your jeep?
Do you have an auto trans? overdrive?
Any vibes?
How much lift did you end up with?

Thanks!
Just installed the rcd kit very disappointed measured before lift got a lift of 2.5 on front and 1.5 on back. I like a level Jeep my jeep now is much higher in the front. Have'nt had a chance to contact anyone. Please don't buy this kit.

RCD 4" kit

I have the RCD 4" kit and if I had it to do again I would go with some other kit or build my own. With the RCD kit I feel like I did build my own kit seeing I still needed upper adjustable control arms and a double carden shaft for the rear, Unless you want to drop your transfer case. Even with the transfer case lowered I had a very bad drive line vibe. I feel I and others are buying this kit for the nice shinny Bilstein shocks and low cost of the kit. Yes the shocks are great but in no way is this kit a bolt on and play kit. I am still using the coils and shocks from this kit and like that combo but over all the kit is not a full kit and is over priced from that point of view.

Edit: Yes this is the 4.25 combo kit. 3" zone suspension, 1.25' body lift... I did a mml and added .75 spacers to the front to level everything out. Tires are 33x12.50
Your jeep looks great!!! How is the ride?

Just look for the tab labeled "Combo Packages" in the middle right of the page (easy to overlook).

Looks like a pretty decent kit for a reasonable price.

Steer clear of rcd

I bought the 3" RCD set up and it does not raise any part of the jeep 3 inches. I was bone stock. Customer Service offered to sell me 4 " springs at a reduced rate where I pay the shipping. But with no guarantee. Why should I have to pay. The springs are way to soft. Now I will be buying a set of AEV/Nth 3" springs to get the lift I was supposed to get.

Zone has the same owners as BDS and many of their products are very similar if not identical. Zone is basically rebranded BDS stuff.

Zone has a 4.25" combo kit that includes a 3" suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, and a 1" MML for $600.
