BDS builds on the success of their 4" radius arm system for the redesigned 2017 Ford Super Duty with new FOX 2.5 remote reservoir coilover options to take the truck's comfort, performance and capability to the next level. Available as a complete 4"coilover system or as an upgrade for current 4" equipped trucks, these new 4" suspension options from BDS and FOX are built to perform right out of the box.

BDS 4" Radius Arm Systems: These new 4" systems are built off the tried and true BDS radius arm design  built to take whatever abuse you can throw at it. Up front a pair of heavy duty replacement radius arms are supplied to correct caster, improve ground clearance, and offer more strength than the factory stamped steel units. These arms are built from 1-3/4" OD -10GA DOM tubing with support gussets and are formed inward to allow for additional clearance of oversized tires. They incorporate factory style 3-1/4" rubber bushings to minimize road vibrations and allow for a long, maintenance-free bushing life. These work in combination with the specially tuned FOX 2.5 factory series remote reservoir coilovers. These coilovers are preset right out of the box for optimal performance with the weight of the 6.7L Powerstroke diesel engine and are an easy install using the supplied frame and axle mounting brackets. Moving onto the steering, the steering correction comes from a forged drop pitman arm with integrated a drag link flip. Also supplied is a 1/4" thick gusseted track bar drop bracket to recenter the front axle and keep the angles in phase for improved handling. Also included for the front suspension are a pair of sway bar relocation brackets, bump stop extensions, brake line relocation brackets, auxiliary FOX 2.0 performance series IFP shocks and upgraded steering stabilizer with mounting bracket. Out back a 5" fabricated block with integrated bump stop wing is used in place of the factory block on the F250 or F350 to level the stance. Longer black e-coated u-bolts and matching FOX 2.0 IFP shocks round out this 4" radius arm lift kit. Take your new 2017 Super Duty to the next level with BDS Suspension.

4" Coilover Upgrade Kit: For 2017 Super Duty owners already outfitted with a standard 4" lift kit, BDS offers an upgrade option to allow you to take your Super Duty to the next level in performance. Designed to work with BDS and most other kits on the market, this upgrade features specially tuned FOX 2.5 factory series remote reservoir coilovers designed for the diesel equipped trucks. These coilovers come prebuilt for 4" of lift and are ready to install right out of the box. They use a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8" hardened steel carbon shaft, Eibach coil springs, 6061-T6 billet aluminum ends and specially formulated race proven oil. The threaded body is easily adjustable (using #129600 spanner wrench) to dial in ride height to compensate for accessories like heavy winch bumpers. Also included are heavy duty upper and lower mounting brackets that bolt into the factory coil bucket and lower axle mount for easy installation with no welding required. The upper brackets integrate a mount to secure the remote reservoir.

bds-projectascension-19The team from BDS Suspension is getting down to the wire as they overhaul the 2017 Ford Super Duty for the 2016 SEMA Show. With less than 2 days they are working around the clock to install a slew of bolt on accessories, wire up electronics and fab several custom touches. Last week we updated you on the BDS 6″ Coilover 4-Link Suspension being installed along with 38″ Nitto Trails and 20″ XD Machetes, 3M brushed metallic wrap was getting installed, Bushwacker flares bolted on, Amp Research powersteps fitted and Since the last update the truck has taken shape looking a whole lot more like the original rendering that was drawn up for a go anywhere, adventure ready overlander featuring aluminum accessories and aluminum vinyl wrap to accent the new aluminum body.

This week the truck is getting reassembled with a ton of new products inside and out. Up front the truck received a one-off set of bumpers built by Fusion Bumpers. They team at Fusion is known for building a premium low profile bumper, made to order with whatever lighting and recovery needs you request. Typically their bumpers are build from high-strength steel, but for this project they built a set from light weight, high strength aluminum, TIG welded to perfection and ready to mount up a Warn Zeon 12S winch, Factor 55 ProLink XXL and 30″ Baja Designs S8 combo lightbar.

Inside the plain jane gray cloth seats are back from the upholstery shop now featuring Roadwire premium black leather with blue stitching. They even have the Project Ascension logo embroidered into the headrests. These seats are super comfortable and a much needed addition with all the miles this truck will see on the highway and off the beaten path. To help with navigation on future expeditions the truck is outfitted with the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 GPS. It has a 7″ touch screen, 2D/3D map modes, can track your trip and is preloaded with more than 82,000 ORV trails to help you navigate your way through like a seasoned trail guide. Also added to this truck is a sPOD modular 6-switch system. For anyone that has ever had to wire up a bunch of lights and accessories the sPOD unit is a must. The system can be mounted most anywhere in your truck and already includes the switches and relays to make wiring up accessories a breeze.

Out back the team is making progress on the custom roof rack system for extra storage. An aluminum basket is being fabbed up and installed about the Bestop canvas supertop and will mount up (5) Baja Designs XL-R LED spot lights as well as a rear facing RTL lightbar. In place of the stock bumper a light weight aluminum Fusion bumper was built to match the front that houses a pair of Baja Designs S2 lights. Additional accessories include a DECKED bed storage system and SlideZilla full width slide out tray for easy access and plenty of dry storage.

With the truck expected to hit the road tomorrow the crew has a long way to go to reassemble the truck and button up loose ends before we load up and hit the road for the 30hr drive out to Las Vegas to debut this truck at the 2016 SEMA Show. Check out the video and photos below and for more updates from the trip follow along on BDS’s Facebook and Instagram pages.

bds-projectascension-14With SEMA deadline rapidly approaching the engineering team at BDS Suspension is hard at work to overhaul the new company test mule, a 2017 Ford F250 Super Duty to turn it into a head turning overloader ready for backcountry exploration or the local truck meet. This truck is slated to be in the BDS Booth (#30204) out in Las Vegas for the 2016 SEMA Show November 1-4. With 2000 miles to drive to the show, the crew its the road for Vegas the middle of next week to start the drive to Vegas in time to set up for the show and get the truck placed.

Last time we checked in on the progress the team had the truck back from being wrapped in 3M brushed metallic vinyl and were working on the new suspension design. At this point the suspension is complete, its a pre-production BDS 6″ 4-Link Conversion System w/ FOX 2.5 DSC Coilovers, dual FOX 2.0 steering stabilizer and RECOIL traction bars. The 4-link design will offer improved strength and better caster control, the FOX DSC coilovers offer a smooth ride over any terrain, improved dampening capabilities, and adjustable dampening settings for optimal performance.

Also under this way are several other mods to the truck. For additional dry storage in the bed a Bestop Supertop was installed in the bed. The sailcloth canvas top clamps to the bed rails and offers easy access to the bed from all sides with rollup tinted windows. Over top of the Supertop the team is fabricating a roof rack for additional storage space and mounting for the lights we’ll be installing. With bigger tires going on this build we added a set of Bushwacker extend-a-fender flares to give us extra tire coverage and a strong, beefy appearance. These come in a molded ABS plastic and wrapped in the brushed aluminum vinyl. Being that this truck will have extra altitude of 6″ of lift and 38s we added a set of the Amp Research Powersteps. We’re huge fans of these steps and run them on just about all of our promotional trucks. They’re easy to install and wire up off the OBD2 port to take cab access much easier and then automatically tuck up out of the way when the doors are closed.

For tires this build is going with 38×13.50×20 Nitto Trail Grapplers. We run these tires on several of our other rigs and have been very impressed with the look, the traction, how easy they are to balance and their 10-ply E road rated sidewall which will come in handy when we’re towing rigs and show trailers across the country. These Nittos are getting mounted up on a set of 20×10 (4.5″ BSing) XD Machete wheels in satin black. These wheels have a clean 6-dual spoke look with a simulated beadlock ring.

Final graphics are being installed with the BDS adventure edition vinyl graphics getting installed along with logos of all the companies with product on the truck. Next up, the team takes on the interior with Roadwire leather seats, Magellan navigation upgrades and wiring up the Baja Design lights. Next week the Fusion bumpers arrive and we’ll mount up the Warn winch, Factor 55 prolink and more. Now with 4 days left to go the team hassles to get this rig completed, loaded up with displays and ready to hit the road for Vegas. Stay tuned for updates…

BDS 4" Radius Arm Lift Kits: 2017 ushers in a new era for the Ford Super Duty with a re-engineered platform, fully boxed frame, aluminum alloy body, retooled styling and tons of new technology. Along with these updates Ford made some updates to the suspension to improve durability and function while retaining a similar coil sprung radius arm front with leaf springs in the rear. With these updates the engineers at BDS Suspension set out to develop a full lineup of suspension lifts to improve the new Super Duty's performance, comfort and capability. The newest kit to hit the shelves ready for sale are new 4" radius arm systems offering clearance for 37" tires while improving ground clearance, articulation and overall performance.

At the heart of these systems are a pair of heavy duty radius arms built to withstand whatever abuse you can throw at them. Built from 1-3/4" OD -10GA DOM tubing with support gussets, these replacement arms are far superior to the factory stamped steel units. They use a high clearance design for extra ground clearance and are formed inward to allow for additional clearance of oversized tires. They incorporate factory style 3-1/4" rubber bushings to minimize road vibrations and allow for a long, maintenance-free bushing life. The arms bolt into the factory mounting points and reposition the front axle to correct caster angle. The additional 4" of lift comes from a pair of full length ProRide coil springs. These springs are available for diesel or gas engine specific spring rates for optimal performance and a true 4" of lift. These paired with your choice of BDS NX2 series gas shocks or the precision tuned FOX 2.0 performance gas shocks offer a smooth ride and improved control over rough terrain. To improve steering angles a forged drop pitman arm is supplied with an integrated drag link flip. Used in combination with the 1/4" thick heavy duty track bar drop bracket will position the front axle and keep the track bar angle in phase with the steering for improved handling. Also included for the front suspension are a pair of sway bar relocation brackets, bump stop extensions, brake line relocation brackets and a NX2 series steering stabilizer with mounting bracket. Out back a 5" fabricated block with integrated bump stop wing is used in place of the factory block on the F250 or F250 to level the stance. Longer black e-coated u-bolts and your choice of NX2 or FOX 2.0 shocks round out this 4" radius arm lift kit. Take your new 2017 Super Duty to the next level with BDS Suspension.
