2-piece strut spacer design maintains ride quality without overextending suspension during down travel
Adventure Pro Series upper control arms for improved strength, travel and maintenance-free operation.
Lifts and levels the stance with clearance for oversized wheels and tires.
Designed for easy installation with ball joint tool include.
Designed and manufactured in the USA.
Includes Factory Protection Plus warranty program.

TIRE/WHEEL RECOMMENDATIONS
37x12.50 Tires on 17x9 Wheels (5-5.5" BS)*
35x12.50 Tires on 17x9 Wheels (5-5.5" BS)
35x11.20 Tires on 17x9 Wheels (5-6" BS)
315/70r17 Tires on stock 17" Sasquatch Wheels
285/70r17 Tires on stock 17" Badlands Wheels
275/80r17 Tires on stock 17" Black Diamond Wheels
275/70r18 Tires on stock 17" Outer Banks Wheels


Coldwater, MI: Building on the current 1" and 2" kits available for the new 2021 Ford Bronco, Zone Offroad is excited announce the addition of 3”/3.5”/4" lift kits. With the main goal of build on the Bronco’s stout factory design with 4-corner coilovers, these systems not only allow clearance for 35-37” tires, but maintains ride quality, handling performance and offroad capability. Kits heights are based on net lift height gained over factory so on Broncos with base suspension kits net 4” of lift, on a Badlands edition Broncos net lift is 3.5” and Sasquatch package equipped Broncos will net 3” of lift over stock. At the heart of all these kits are a pair of Adventure Pro Series upper control arms. These high strength cast arms offer a great look under the Bronco and allow for additional suspension travel, camber correction. These utilize vulcanized rubber bushings that come pre-installed for smooth quiet operation. Due to the extreme angle achieved by the factory ball joints these systems are designed to reuse the ball joints in the new control arms. Zone Offroad provides a special tool to make removal and installation easy.

The additional ride height comes in the form of 2-piece strut spacers utilizing a top mounted strut spacer in combination with a spring perch spacer. The reason for this 2-piece design rather than a taller 1-piece top mount spacer found in other kits on the market is the 2-piece design provides the lift without adding too much length to the strut assembly at full extension to maintain operating angles for the CVs, steering tie rods, sway bars and lower control arms. Also supplied for the front are a pair of bump stop extensions designed to properly limit suspension compression and all the necessary hardware to complete the install. Out back depending on the configuration you’ll receive a top mounted strut spacer and possibly a spring perch spacer and bump stop extensions to lift and level out the stance. These kits are spec’d to allow clearance for 35-37” tires, however 37s will require modification to the factory intrusion beams (aka the crash bars). Get your Bronco lifted with Zone Offroad.

I believe this is the same approach BDS did for their lift kit. @evilletruck has a cool video for that installation.

It's great that several companies are already launching their product! that way quality goes up and price go down.

Would anyone roughly know how much it would cost in labor to install one of these lifts? Curious...

So if I have a 4dr Badlands w/sasquatch, would I need to get F97 or F100?

If you have a Badlands with Sasquatch, you do not have a Badlands, you have a Sasquatch.
Is there not an issue with the HOSS suspension system with these lifts?

Sorry Im not a suspension expert. I can say I have no interest in these cheap spacer lifts. I will wait until a true lift kit is out that drops the diff and corrects all the CV geometry etc.

All Broncos get HOSS suspension. Badlands and Squatch get similar but not identical Bilstein Shocks with position sensitive dampening.

That position sensitive MAY be an issue with these lifts, as you're effectively trading shock droop for height - so you're resting height will be in a different position than stock and MAY affect the position sensitive dampening.

To me these are largely cosmetic - Ford / Bilstein spent a lot of time developing and tuning this suspension set up, this largely undoes most of it.

Ya to me it feels like a false sense of security in clearance that will end with two broken tie rods right? :D

That's what I was thinking too, but wanted someone smarter than me to confirm it, LOL.

BDS and Zone are both part of Fox. The spacer kit parts are identical. The Maxlider BDS/Zone stage1 3"/4" kits pair the BDS UCA with the same Zone spacer kits.

Both the BDS UCA and low-cost Zone UCA are compatible with a Fox coilover upgrade (when available). The Zone UCA requires reuse of the factory ball joint.

The Maxlider is more than double the price. Is that due to the Ball Joint factor or just overall quality of the kit?
