    Default zone vs PA body lift?

    is there any honest difference between the two other than about 30 bucks.

    Though I don't have any experience with body lifts, from what I've read/ heard you really can't go wrong with either kit.

    I believe I've read that the bumper brackets with the zone kit are easier to install.

    I agree with blackout. If I remember right, zone has better instructions as well.

    ok ive decided to go with a body lift instead of a suspension cuz a guy i know has a suspension lift and told me that he can never trade his truck in cuz he had to trim the frame for the new cross members. dealers wont take it. gotta save money for the zone kit and go rhino dominator 2's. oh by the way does anyone know the load capacity of those steps? i emailed the company and got no answer.

    He needs to find another dealer. I see used/lifted rigs all over. As far as the GR's, I'm 240 and they dont have any trouble supporting me.

    they said something about having to claim it when insurance companies or the dmv ask if the frame of the vehicle has been modified. i remember being asked that before but never paid much attention to it.
