Over the last 18 months since we first got our hands on the 2019 Ranger we’ve been featured center stage at Ford’s booth at SEMA and made top 40 in SEMA’s Battle of the Builders competition. We’ve taken on the Overland Adventure, Moab trail rides, driven cross country numerous times and made it out to dozens of shows, races and dealer visits along the way. It’s been on the cover of Four Wheeler Magazine and still to this day is the only crew cab, long bed late model Ranger in existence (that we’re aware of). It’s the one and only Project Ranger X.

Stepping back to when we first got our hands on this truck, one of the first preproduction Rangers Ford build specifically for us to turn the project truck you see today…. Built up and ready for an adventure. With just 5 short weeks, the BDS build team took one of the first 2019 Ford Rangers in existence and overhauled it into a show stopper. Built for capability out on the trail, great looks with a strong stance, and plenty of utility with room to haul gear BDS's Project Ranger X elevates the Ranger to the next level. Starting with a pre-production 2019 Ranger right off the assembly line, this truck was torn down, the frame was extended, service bed and custom rack fitted, a BDS suspension lift installed and larger tires and accessories were added. We documented the build in a 5-part build series that followed the team as they transform

Coldwater, MI: BDS Suspension is now offering 2.5" radius arm lift systems for the 2020 Ford Super Duty. Available with full length ProRide coil springs or FOX 2.5 factory series remote reservoir coilovers, these 2.5" radius arm systems are designed to improve the stance of your Super Duty while taking performance, capability and ride quality to the next level with clearance for 35" tires. The coilovers option offers vastly superior damping capability to soak up the harshest terrains offroad while offering comfort for your daily commute. They feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8" hardened stainless steel shaft, black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts and remote reservoir and come fully assembled with FOX coil springs. These coilovers are pretuned for optimal performance and preset for 2.5" of lift right out of the box with the weight of the 6.7L Powerstroke diesel engine. They install easily using the supplied bolt-on frame and axle mounting brackets.

In place of the factory stamped steel arms this kit upgrades to heavy duty BDS radius arms. These brawny arms are built from 1-3/4" OD heavy wall tubing, fully welded with gussets for superior strength to the factory units light weight stamped steel units they are replacing. The heavy wall tubular construction improves strength while correcting caster with a lower cam slot. At the frame mount a large OE-style rubber bushing is used to better isolate of NHVs and allow for quiet operation without any need for maintenance. These bushings offer superior durability and quieter operation than arms with heims and flex joints. Also upgraded as part of these new 2.5" lift systems is a high strength replacement track bar designed to recenter the front axle with the lift installed. This new track bar is adjustable, built from 1-3/8" solid steel stock with gusseted ends and a fine thread center turnbuckle with pinch bolts. The track bar comes pre-assembled and ready to bolt into the factory location to adjust to length. At one end these use a greaseable, high-durometer polyurethane bushing and the other end a heavy duty ball joint. This setup offer strength, comfort and quiet operation over track bars that use heims. Rounding out the front of these kits are front brake line relocation brackets to allow enough slack in the lines to cycle the suspension offroad while the sway bar relocation brackets to correct sway bar operating angle for optimal performance without sacrificing approach angle.

In the rear, these kits use a slightly taller 4" replacement lift block and new black e-coated u-bolts to net a level stance without the need to stack blocks to do it. The block integrates a bump stop wing to correctly limit suspension up travel and allow you to retain the factory rear springs to maintain tow capacity. Finishing out the rear are a pair of NX2 or FOX 2.0 performance series gas shocks to compliment the front performance. Take your new Super Duty to the next level these new 2.5" radius arm systems from BDS Suspension.
