Question 2002 4x4 lift Rough Country vs Zone Offroad

Hey guys I just bought a new to me 02 Ram 1500 4x4 sport 5.9 and I am looking for the best bang for the buck lift kit. Rough Country or Zone Offroad both go for 1195. Dont know if there are any other companys around this price range. If anyone has used one of these two or sugestion on another kit would chime in thoughts on them and would like to see some pics installed. Thanks in advance guys.

I have the rough country 6 inch on my 06 mega cab, it's has been great with the only problem coming from a broken drop hangar for the sway bar from a heavy rock hit.

Not one opinion on the zone kit? Has anyone on here with an 02-05 got a zone lift or will I be the first?

How high are you planning on lifting your truck?? Between the two I would recommend the rough country, but I would suggest the fabtech if your going 6 inches. I have had no issues with mine. only problem was that I had to move the exhaust tubing next to the front drive shaft to make room for it when it dropped. Otherwise no issues.

I think I will get the Zone kit. The way it sounds I will be the onty one 02-05 on here with there 5" suspension lift kit. I cant find one person and only two people on there site with it done. So if theres anyone out there let me know what you think of your lift.
