Check out this 2021 Ford F150 Platinum built by the team at All Out Motorsports. We recently had this build featured in our booth at the 2021 Lone Star Throwdown in Conroe, Texas. With this being one of the only 2021 Ford F150s at the show, let alone equipped with a BDS Suspension system, this rig got a lot of attention from spectators. This rig is running the BDS 6" coilover system with 325/45 Nitto Terra Grapplers on 24" KG1 wheels.

We are loving this bad ass 2020 RAM 2500! This rig was featured in our booth at the 2021 Lone Star Throwdown, along with #ProjectRangerX, #ProjectRenaissance, and a 2021 Ford F150 built by All Out Performance, which you can check out here. Tylor, owner of the 2020 RAM 2500, is a friend of BDS. He actually let us use this vehicle for test fitment for our kits. This rig is set up with the (pre-production) BDS 8" C/O with 38x15.50r24 Mickey Thompson Baja Boss tires on 24x12 TIS wheels with an all-gloss black finish.  Tylor's goal was for this truck to be his every day truck while going as big as possible. This is one kit we are super excited to bring to the market. Stay tuned for updates!

This past weekend BDS Suspension made their way down to Conroe, Texas for the Lone Star Throwdown. This is an event we have attended for many years. Each year we see bigger, badder builds as well as a variety of other types of vehicles. While we are in the industry of lifted trucks, we can also look around and appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into everything we see. This year was no exception.

Staff came from all over to get to this event. A few made the long drive down in #ProjectRangerX and #ProjectRenaissance from our headquarters in Coldwater, MI to Conroe, TX. We also had reps come from other parts of the country to join in the fun and cover all sales and marketing functions.


This year's booth was a success! We got many compliments on the set up and the vehicles in the booth. It was a bit muddy, so the wood chips helped clean up the land.  We had a few vehicles that you may recognize, #ProjectRangerX and #ProjectRenaissance. These are two of our rigs that are a part of our impressive fleet. #ProjectRangerX got a ton of attention throughout the event. It didn't quite fit in with the crowd at Lonestar Throwdown, and that's probably why so many people wanted to come by and check it out.


In our Booth we had two customer builds that we featured as well.

Here we have Tyler's 2020 RAM 2500 fitted with the (preprodution) BDS 8" 4-Link Coilover System and 38x15.50 Mickey Thompson tires on  24x12 TIS wheels

Overall it was a great show! The weather ended up being perfect, which kept the spectators happy. Attendance was great! Saturday was packed all day long and the party went late. There was a little bit of everything for everyone at this show. From lowered to lifted, old to new, and everything in between. We met some really great people, got to do some video shoots and interviews, and, of course, talk about all things BDS Suspension.

I’m writing this as a long-term review of the 4.5" short arm, BDS suspension as installed on my 2015 JKU, also known as The Warrior Jeep. The Jeep was a showroom new 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock Edition.

The BDS 4.5 Inch Short Arm suspension was installed March 3rd, 2016, and since that time I have put over 40k off road miles on it. Everything from hard core rock crawling in Moab, Utah to high-speed desert running in Johnson Valley California, and everything in between. My "shake down" for this suspension was the Transamerica Trail whereby I ran East Coast to West Coast almost entirely off road over the course of 26 days. The BDS suspension has taken me up the Pan American Highway, countless Jeep Jamboree events, and the Rubicon Trail without missing a beat.

Now that the Jeep has hit the 60k miles mark on the odometer (yes, only 20k miles was done on the streets its generally trailered to and from events) I figured it was time to chime in and let the world know my unsolicited, uncompensated, unbiased, unfiltered thoughts on the BDS suspension system and what its condition is today.

The suspension has truly been beat on, and its just starting to show some wear. Just for perspective I am on my 9th set of shocks. The coils are sagging about a half inch, the poly bushings that BDS provided are starting to show some wear. I have inspected every weld, every part, bracket, and bolt of the suspension and aside from some bangs, scuffs, and scrapes, its just as solid as it was when installed. Every time I had an issue with something, I always inspected the suspension first, I began to realize that the BDS suspension was never a problem, it was always some extraneous widget that was broken or damaged. I cannot find words to express just how incredibly tough and reliable the BDS suspension has been.

What would I do different? Nothing. Period.

Four months ago, the BDS team didn't know this event would even take place. Instead, KOH turned out to be an action-packed, non-stop party -- with social-distancing of course. Team BDS set up a giant tent where racers and fans could hang out and watch the live feed. The barbecue cranked out food for days. ..and there was plenty to see on and off the course in Hammertown.

Saturday brought out the big boys, the 4400 class. Kevin Stearns had the 11 car looking good and dialed in. A minor issue during prerunning had the team working overtime to get ready for a qualifying attempt. Kevin was smart, driving the car fast, but also testing the team’s solutions on the course and qualified 36th out of 90+ racers. Not a bad spot to start from, considering that all in attendance said lap 3 was going to be the biggest challenge of the week. Unfortunately, race day had other plans for Kevin, but regardless of the outcome, the BDS 11 car looked amazing, performed as designed, and got plenty of camera time itself.

Be sure to add King of the Hammers to your bucket list!

FOX dominated the Every Man Challenge taking the top five positions:
Chayse Caprara
Brad Lovell
Casey Gilbert
Cameron Steele
Dan Fresh

We were excited to check out the Bronco while out at KOH. This is one vehicle that we've all been waiting a long time to have back out on the market. We got to check out the 4600 class race Bronco, but otherwise, we didn't get too many sneak peeks. We are still on the edge of our seats waiting for some real seat time with the new Ford Bronco platform.

BDS proudly displayed it's latest custom build project -- the "Work/Play" 2021 Ford F150 Platinum Hybrid in FOX's KOH booth. We built this rig for the Ford Auto Nights event in the fall of 2020. You can learn all about this rig [here]. This one-of-a-kind rig -- with its long list of accessories and features -- gained lots of attention at KOH.
