Thoughts about a 6" lift from Zone Offroad

I want to lift my 2013 F350 and came across a 6 inch lift from Zone Off-road. Does anyone have this lift on their truck and what do you think about it. Or if you have any suggestions for a 6 inch lift that you would recommend.

I considered a 4" when I first bought my truck but decided not to cheap out so much and went with the pure performance. Would still like to hear opinions.

I have a zone 6" lift. I think it is a good kit. The hardware all seems great. The truck rides and drives straight and doesn't do anything funny. I feel the shocks and springs are are less than stellar. All 4 of my shocks have leaked out and I could compress them by hand. The springs in the front are ok. The add a leafs in the rear are really stiff.

If you wan't to go 6" lift, I'd check out Pure Performance. I'm in the decision making process of swapping out my springs and shocks with Pure stuff, or going down to a 4" pure lift or 4.5 carli lift, or even a carli commuter. I feel 4" lift looks perfect on these trucks and is a little more utilitarian than the 6" height.

*sigh* decisions, decisions...

Thank you for the feedback. I went to the pure performance website and didn't see a lift for my year and model truck but they look nice. I also went to the Carli website and checked there stuff out. Carli is really nice but a little outside my price range. Do you guys have any feedback on other lifts?

I have a 2013. I went with pure performances triple threat 4". I love it. It's a great riding kit with excellent components. I only recommend pure and carli. Carli is a west coast brand that does extensive off road testing in the desert and pure is east coast. The mini pack in the rear is significantly better than a big block but a full replacement leaf is the best. I went the mini route and am glad I did.

There are some great site sponsors that sell pure and you can always contact them directly if you have any questions.

I did a review of my lift and have some pics up here.

Carli, Pure Performance, and Icon. These would be my top choices. BDS if I was on a budget, not Zone

If you are still shopping around for lifts, I have the Zone 6" lift but not their shocks. I used Skyjackers nitro filled shocks and like them so far. For a budget lift I wouldn't hesitate to use their kit. Seems to be good quality and sturdy built stuff, truck rides and drives good as well.

how is it "more Utilitarian "? I think 6" on 37s is probably the most Utilitarian setup out there by the definition of combination work-truck play-truck.
