Had my Zone lift installed on my EcoDiesel and took pictures on something I wanted to make sure was done correctly. Input appreciated

You can see how the 'mount' or whatever it's called on driver side looks like it was cut, and the passenger side wasn't (2 full holes on that one). Just want to make sure this was done correctly, thanks!!

The crossmember needs to be cut on the drivers side to clear the front difrerential.

Looks good to me. Like Solid State said, you do need to cut the stock crossmember in order to allow the drop of the differential.

As the others have stated, yes that's done correctly. Any proper lift kit that comes with a front differential drop brackets requires that OEM crossmember mount to be cut off to provide the clearance for the front diff to drop down.

What model truck and which lift? I installed a Zone 6" lift on my 2015 2500 diesel and I didn't do any cutting?

1500's require the cutting. 2500/3500's have a completely different front suspension and therefore different requirements.
