We love to get feedback from customers to hear what they think of the kits, how they perform, and where they’ve explored.  Recently Shawn hit us up on Facebook with feedback on his 6″ Long Arm System (#629H) equipped RAM HD that he installed in his driveway. Here’s what he had to say:

“I bought my truck brand new off dealer lot with 10 miles on it. At 20,000 miles I installed the BDS 6 inch LONG ARM on it and now my truck has 112,000 miles. From the time I installed the lift, up til now, it rides better then it did when it was stock.

Installing the control arm brackets out in my driveway was kinda time consuming, but well worth it.” – Shawn Eid



If you’re into country music, you’ve heard of Florida Georgia Line. If you’re into trucks you know the new F150 is a bad ass ride, especially with the 3.5L EcoBoost under the hood.

The crew at Truck Trend Magazine gave us some love this month in the form of a BDS suspension install on a hypothetical Zombie Apocalypse prep scenario. The donor truck was a blacked out 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD (2WD) that received a BDS 6″ High Clearance Lift it and 35s.

We always love to hear from customers, how they use (and abuse) their BDS-equipped trucks, places they go, terrain they’ve conquered. Over the weekend we received a message from Jarrod running the BDS 6″ performance coilover system on his RAM 1500. Here’s what he had to say:

“I’ve had your 6” coilover system on my 14 Ram half ton for a year.  In the past two days I logged 3150 miles from Alaska through Canada and back. To completely test suspension system, truck traveled at 70 mph over all terrains encountered. Traveling throughout the US, the Alaska highway is the most brutal testing ground. Your suspension system exceeds all expectations. Ride quality was at 100% throughout trip. Hopefully y’all have an opportunity to test your systems yourselves on this roadway.


In preparation for their haul out to SEMA the guys at OffRoad Xtreme and Power Automedia outfitted their 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 4” BDS High Clearance System, 33” Toyo R/Ts and 20” Dick Cepek Matrix wheels. They were looking for a kit that would be comfortable on the road and and not sacrifice their ability to tow being that this truck was hauling a race prepped Cobra destined for the a spot at SEMA. The guys ended up going with the standard 4” kit (712H) along with rear GlideRide leaf springs and FOX 2.0 shocks.

We love hearing back from our customers, where they explore and who they #useitabuseit in their BDS equipped rigs. Joey hit us up recently on Instagram (@joey_martineau) with this to say about his new Super Duty:

“Hey I got a 2016 F350 longed with your 8” lift kit with Fox shocks (stretched to 10”) sitting on 24×14 American Forces and Toyo Open Country’s and I gotta say its the best riding lifted truck I’ve ever driven. Y’all make the best lift in the business and even with a couple thousand pounds of concrete it barely sags in the back. Thanks so much for making such a great product that I know will last a lifetime! – @joey_martineau”
