Zone/BDS lift kit feedback

Anyone have any feedback on this lift kits made by Zone/BDS suspensions?

Looking for pros/cons over something like ruff country kit.

Looking to go with a 6inch lift and 35s for a christmas present to myself...Thanks in advance.

The zone lift is a solid lift. The hardware seems great. The shocks and springs....are mediocre. I would upgrade to the fox shocks when you order. Just call them as it's not on the website. The rear add a leafs are very stiff. The ride is very solid. Just stiff. If I were to do it over again, I'd go Carli or Icon.

I was looking into the Zone then looked into the BDS. If you could combine the two kits I think it would be a very good lift for the average guy who just wants a nice solid lift with a good ride. I like the Zone for the radius arms instead of the drop brackets. The track bar with the zone kit is nice to. Now with the BDS you get the lifetime warranty, option for Fox shocks that are reasonably priced. You also get the option of the duel front shocks to.

Hearing that I can get a Zone lift with Fox shocks I might go that route as long as the BDS duel front shock hoop will fit with the Zone lift. I will be going with blocks instead of leafs.

I'd like to hear from someone that has this lift as spring I will be ordering 1.

I went with all BDS and couldnt be happier with my lift. I never looked into Zone. But thumbs up from a BDS customer. That warranty helps too.

If you are going 6" lift, do not go 35" tires, its too small, you can put 35" tires on with no lift, an it really dwarfs the tire on 6" of lift.

I did a rough country 4 link kit. Very easy to do, but the shocks and springs like everyone else said, are "rough"

Also, I think Zone is BDS without the warranty if memory serves.. same stuff though
