I am considering the 3" JK lift...

Thanks!

Not the best lift out there. Biggest issue is their springs sag ridiculously. Never seen one remain on over a year. A lot better alternatives out there for the same or just a little more cash. For Example a TerraFlex 2.5" lift is $10 less, better customer service, and warranty, will net you an actual 3.25" and keep you there.

I was (am) also looking at that one too, and a couple others, but for price, these two both seem pretty good.

Yours is the first (of 4 forums) that I hve read that was not happy with it... right now I am literally almost ready to flip a coin between the two.

Thanks for the input tho!

I've installed and pulled out two of these kits on Freinds rigs. One had the 3" lift and the other had the 4". My OME sat higher than both. Do some research over on JKO there have been quite a few posts on Zone too.

Zone is a decent lift. I would put them in the same category as Rough Country and Tough Country on their Jeep lifts.
The Terra kit is about the same, but the spring rate makes them have a bit of a smoother ride.
Also, he is right about the hight of the Terra. Plan on getting about 1-1.5" more lift than advertised.

I am a dealer of both of these brands (and many more). I am a registered vendor of this forum now (just waiting on Shaggy to add my banner to the vendor section), so PM me if you need some great prices.

Do you have a site? What other manufacturers do you carry?

Oh and welcome, throw up a new thread in the Vendors section.

My site is down for major reconstruction. We are trying to add flash and other cool stuff to it. We have passed our launch date due to some glitches, but it should be up real soon.
Until then, dont hesitate to PM me here or call me at 479-629-4407.

I carry almost every brand of off-road and bolt on products out there.

As soon as my section is up in the vendors area, I will post all the brands I carry.

I hope your site will support non-flash too... Gov't PC's block flash, so I can't hit those sites while at work.
