Default Zone Offroad vs. Rough Country

I'm going to be getting a suspension lift for my truck and these two run about the same price. Both are 5" front 3" rear and seem to include the same basic setup of knuckles and blocks. Just looking for opinions/recommendations......

Zone and Rough Country both make good lifts.

They do!

OP, if you are comparing the 6" lift, I would choose the Rough Country.
If the 4", I would choose the Zone

But I will explain once I figure out what which lift you want.

It's not a 4" or 6" ...... They are both 5" kits, as stated in my original post.

Got it!
I wasn't sure as 6" lifts are not really 6" up front, so that is why i got it confused.

Anyways, I too was considering RCX or Zone and opted for RCX because there were certain components i like better on the RCX kit and it comes with lifetime warranty

I had a rough country lift on my 99 Ram awhile back and I liked it, but I only had the truck for about a month after the lift was completed. I'm pretty sure a 5" kit is the biggest I can get. Even it is listed as a 4-5" kit, depending on how much you crank up the torsion bars.

Went with what I know, and ordered the RC kit last night. Got it from a site called TruckProUSA, they had the best price of $1,195 no tax free shipping, plus I found a 5% off coupon code. I also have new MOOG lower ball joints and upper control arms coming from RockAuto. When everything gets here I'm gonna rent a ball joint press from Advance and try my luck at installing this beast lol
