when the levee breaks

Yes, WTLB is my favorite ending to any Zep Song.

I also like the endings to:

The Rover

Friends

Gallows Pole

That's The Way has a pretty good ending, Jonsey brings out the bass guitar for it. The HTWWW performance is great too (though Jonsey doesn't shine like on the studio) when the whole band stops then starts again and Plant sings "it ain't right". I've always loved the Whole Lotta Love outro as well, Plant sounds freaking amazing, and Bonzo just keeps smashing! HHWCID, HMMT and Ramble on are also great as well as No Quarter live 1977-1979 is one of my favorites.

Almost forgot my favorite outro of all which is Thank You live especially Southampton '73 Page and Plant both sound phenomenal! Definitely my favorite outro of any song or performance.

Out of the ones you listed, I would choose "SIBLY", but I have a couple personal favorite Zep song endings that weren't on the list, and caused me to vote for "Other" on your list:

The Lemon Song

Over the Hills and Far Away (personal fav)

When the Levee Breaks

Great list though.

Could be plenty from the provided list, but right now for me it is the end of Hots on for Nowhere. It's like 'get some of this riff, rude eh?", Now get some more of it, finished. It's just a brilliant way to end a song.

Definitely "The Rover", because of the guitar phase shifter effect, and how he changes (key?) on the last riffs. But every time I listen, I'm, like, no no don't go away - PLAY MORE!!!

I voted IMTOD, but The Rover and Custard Pie - also cracking good rolling jam endings. Achilles Last Stand also comes to mind, great tone.

The ending of Dazed and Confused played at Essen 03-22-1973.

My mind first jumped to two songs: Bonham going wild on the kick to end Good Time Bad Times, and the swinging roar of the whole band in Out on the Tiles.

As far as songs go that don't fade, maybe Immigrant Song's dead stop after two and half minutes of fury, or the sweet, sweet release of The Ocean. Robert's "so good" to end The Ocean from 7/29/73 at the Garden is unreal.

Nobody's Fault But Mine - I always thought it sounded like a black hole collapsing in on itself after Plant's brilliant stuttering ending

Achilles Last Stand, with the ending reversing the faded up intro.

Yes !

A few more

Tea for One - perfect hazy ending 

Hots on for Nowhere - as described above by many

Night Flight - Plant is magnificent

Bring it on Home - especially that last harmonica note

Heartbreaker - the way they end abruptly on "Heart!"

A few more

Sick Again - that is just a wild sound Page gets at the very end

Boogie with Stu - I like they way they syncopate the percussion at the end, then they left the laughing in 

Wanton Song - relentless riffing then Plant lets out one final wail that fades with an echo at the end.

Of the choices listed I'm Gonna Crawl.

 

My favorite is The Ocean.

Yeah, is that the one where you hear Bonzo yell out "That's gonna be the one, eh Jimmy?"

Definitely my fave...

Always loved the ending tom When the Levee Breaks. The fact that it's the last closing moment of their most perfect album - by the time to get to it you're exhausted with wonder and that thank you and goodnight slide and nonchalant un and down strum. God drops mike and walks off....
