    4" is a lot of lift for a TJ and a lot of times, the coils end up yielding more lift than that. Unless you're only going to use your Jeep off road, I might recommend you looking into a long arm kit. I've run a Full Traction long arm kit in the past and it's made for 4"-6" of lift. I thought it was a really well made kit and one that doesn't require any welding.

    Otherwise, I have also run a 3.5" Rubicon Express kit and thought it worked well too.

    Just know that depending on the year of your TJ, you may need to do a slip yoke eliminator and install a new drive shaft with it.

    Why long arm? Is the zone 4 1/4" any good? Looks to be all bolt on.

    You can drop your transfer case skid and get by but with an 00, the better way to go is to install an SYE.

    It'll help correct your suspension geometry and offer a better ride. If your Jeep is a daily driver, this can be nice to have. I am not a fan of Zone.

    Not a TJ driver here, but I have a Zone 4 on my WJ. Zone offers a pretty complete kit for a low price, however, I wish I had done more research before purchasing. Shock bushings failed in under 1000 miles with light offroading. I just found a lower control arm bushing that failed after about 10,000 miles, came out of the arm. As far as the ride, it's fairly stiff, I would say tolerable, but that's it. If I were in the market again for a kit, I wouldn't do Zone either. One thing I will say though, their WJ track bar bushings are pretty sweet, hard enough to not wear out and just hard enough to not be noisy. Wish they'd done the same with their other bushings. Everything else is definitely on the lower end, IMO.
