Zone/RC Ready Lift

Anyone running this kit, if so how long, any issues? Zone Offroad 4" Radius Arm Suspension System F21/F22,

What about RC or Ready lift, how do you like them, how are the new coil springs holding up to the weight if these trucks? Been looking at lifts for a while now and I wanna pull the trigger but I cannot decide on which one to get. I am definitely not interested in spending 2-4K on a lift kit, I do not go off roading very often, when I do it's just to get to a camp spot, I'm not doing the Baja 1000 and I do not need a full suspension rebuild. Please do not turn this into a Carli or your wasting your money thread. Thanks in advance......

Id go for the Zone. 4WP's sells those Zone lifts like hotcakes. I have always been amazed at the price of them. My friggen radius arms alone cost that.

Don't expect to win any awards in ride quality I will say that. I have the worlds most Frankenstein Lift ever but it rides nice.

Fabtech radius arms
Rancho Shocks 9000XL
Pure Performance track bar
Pro Comp drop down brackets
Icon front Coils
Carli/Deaver Leaf springs
Crown brake lines

Could have saved money on a full kit from someone but I kinda think I picked out good stuff to fit my needs. Truck really drives nice,as good as our 2002 Tahoe and even better when some weights in the back or pulling my trailer. So No Regrets


Go for the Zone I think it may surprise you. Can always mod rear leafs to soften the ride too. Put a 3/8" plate same size as sheet metal shim from factory on top of overload leaf. Will give you 3-4" of suspension compression before hitting that stiff overload leaf. I did that with my old truck and it was amazing how much it improved things. $5.00 was money invested too.

I need a 4.5" lift that'll work with my Air Lift bags. I was going to go carli but the kit I wanted went from 5.200 to 7.500. Icon went up from 4000 to 5500. Even the the BDS i liked is up to 3500.

I can buy a lifted Bronco for those costs and make the bronco my main hunting and fishing rig.

None of our kits have ever seen a price increase that drastic... There might be some confusion there.

That's rediculas what the hell is up with these lifts.

Well I guess they are starting to figure the new trucks are $60-$80,000 so what's another 5 or 7K

Yea what a bunch of crap.

Maybe so. But I priced 1 out a year ago and it was under 6k. Just did it again a couple weeks ago. And over 7k. Dont know why.
