    This coil over conversion is what the 2500 HD 2011 up desperately needs . Also consider possibly a lighter spring rate for the 6.0 liter gas engine.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      The initial launch is aimed at the higher production 6.6L Duramax trucks, but there may be 6.0L gas options in the future

  • eli mills says:

    did yall use the 1500 rds bumper? cause NFAB doesn’t even have a 2500 rds bumper?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Eli, at the time of the build N-Fab was still prototyping the bumpers for the redesigned 2015+ HD trucks. The bumper they sent wasn’t a great fit and things like the front body mount frame brackets weren’t covered up. You can see from the photos in the earlier writeups about Raider that we modified the bumper side wings and built filler panels to help with the ascetic. I don’t believe N-Fab ever released a bolt-on bumper for the late model HDs
