BDS Featured Rides: 2020 Ford F350 - Project Go Beyond | FJ Cruiser

Our 2020 Ford F350, better known as #ProjectGoBeyond, was our 2019 SEMA build. This rig is now hanging out in Colorado with our Sales Rep, Miles.

This rig underwent a lot of customization to get to become what we consider the ultimate overlanding rig. You can read all about it here and check out the build specs on the right -->  We are looking forward to taking it out for some true overlanding adventures as soon as possible.

Also hanging out in Miles's driveway is a Toyota FJ cruiser. This rig is used more so as a daily driver, but it has been out on some pretty fun adventures as well; including the National FJ Summit. We've included a few photos from this event below.

Stay tuned for more employee ride features coming out soon. If you're a customer or dealer running BDS and think we should feature it, send in photos and videos for your chance for us to spotlight your ride.

BDS Featured Rides: 2017 Ford Super Duty | Project Renaissance

If you live in the Southeast region of the US, you may recognize this guy or this truck! Brad is our Territory Rep and he is driving the BDS 2017 Ford F250, nicknamed Project Renaissance. This rig made its debut at the 2019 Daytona Truck Meet. Since then it has been to several other shows including: Scrapin The Coast 2019, Rocky Top Diesel Shootout 6, Rudys Diesel Fall Event, The Petit Le Mans, and Lone Star Throwdown 2020. We are itching to get this rig back out to some more events and shows across the country. Brad has been in the industry 16 years.

Brad's interest in the industry started at his very first NOPI car show as a kid. Out of highschool he worked as a tech in a shop, from there he got into sales, management, and even owned his own shop for a while. In 2013 he built his own SEMA rig, which debuted in the American Force booth. In 2017 Brad started his journey with BDS. Since then he has been growing his territory and building relationships with customers dealers.

Project Renaissance is always getting complements when out on the road. People of all ages and backgrounds are always coming up to ask questions. For current specs check out the tab on the right  --------->

BDS Featured Rides: Ford Super Duty

With shows and events getting cancelled due to COVID-19 related stay home and quarantine orders several of the staff here at BDS Suspension have been going a bit stir crazy. As many of you can attest to the first rule of owning a lifted truck or Jeep is you have to talk about it all the time so several of us on staff thought we'd do just that by featuring our own rides and what we drive on the daily. I thought I'd kick it off with a feature on my personal ride, a 2011 Ford Super Duty.

If you follow BDS on Facebook and Instagram the last couple years you may have seen me on a few of the videos featuring custom truck builds or hanging out at events. My name is Carter and I've been on staff helping out in the BDS marketing dept for the last 10 years. Over the last few years I've set up my Super Duty to perform well and handle the tasks I need it for. Its comfortable as a daily driver, able to tow/haul heavy loads, capable for mild offroad use and looks good doing it (well in my opinion at least). Initially, this truck was built on Xtreme Offroad TV as part of a "chase truck" themed build series. From there I've changed and adapted that setup to meet my needs, both for functionality as well as styling. For current specs check out the tab on the right  --------->
