Zone or Teraflex..and why?

I have to go with a spring lift. I have 1.75" puck in front (on stock springs) to level out my front end. I am running a Smitty SRC Bumper and Winch and it sagged the front alot. In fact, the 1.75" puck could actually go to a 2" puck to level it out completely...this is why I have to go with a spring kit...don't want to stack pucks.

Okay...

Zone 3" kit: $439.99
Springs
Rear extended sway bar link
rear track bar bracket
Brake line relocation brackets
shocks
bump stop extensions

Teraflex 2.5Ē Lift Kit with shock adapters: $482.99
Spring
Rear extended sway bar link
rear track bar bracket
shock extensions
bump stop extensions

I wheel in SW Florida, so I really don't need alot of flex as there isn't much to drive over. What I do need is a little height as we have alot of water. I plan on running stock Rubi Tires (32") for now and will probably only go up to a 33" tire when I do upgrade. The upgrade will be awhile as these tires have alot of life left in them. I have an auto with 3.73 so I doubt I will go with 35" tires as I don't want to change gearing at this time.

If I asked "would I be happy with the Zone" would be a matter of opinion. What I want to know, is compare the Zone springs with the Teraflex springs / good, bad, ugly..so on. The Zone comes with shocks at the price point I want to stay at. With the Teraflex I will have to add shocks at a later time.

I know RC makes a kit in the price range..actually less than $400, but I hear all the stories about RC springs being crap.

Anyway.....discuss.....

Thanks!
Nathan

both will do what you want. Zone is a spin off of BDS just doesn't carry the lifetime warranty. I run the TF kit and I can't way enough good about it. If you don't have a Rubi I would step up to the kit with shocks instead of extension. TF yeils a bit more height , I have had zeros spring sag (I run and ARB bumper and xrc8 winch) and I have a level ride. TF customer service has been top notch as well

Sounds like Teraflex it will be. Will run the shock adapters for now and get shocks later.

Thanks!
