Zone Offroad leveling kit installed!!!

This past weekend myself and my brother inlaw installed the Zone Offroad leveling kit on my truck. It took us about 6 hours to install and double check everything. The real pain in the a** was the track bar bolts to remove, that took us about an hour or more by itself. The kit lifted the front of my truck almost 5" so I guess the factory springs were real worn out. Overall it is a good kit and had good instructions. Everything turned out good and I like how the truck sits now and it seems to drive better. I did find out I need new shocks the factory ones are shot. I would recommend this kit.

The attached pics are before and after. The first two are before and the last two are after.

That's why i removed my ranchhand bumper. I didn't like the way it made the front squat. My front came up a full inch when i put the stock bumper.back on.

Google Zone Offroad, and they have search boxes that are vehicle specific.

The kit comes with 2.5" mini-leaf spring packs, u-bolts, the rest of the required equipment to install, and an adjustable track bar.

The kit coming with the adj track bar is great cause most kits come with cheap brackets or you have to buy the bar seperate, and the kit is competitively priced.

I have also heard the mini-spring pack is probably the smoothest ways to do a level, rather than an add-a-leaf which can stiffen ride.
