Product Announcement

BDS Suspension adds new 2.5” lift systems to their ever-expanding lineup for the 2019 Ford Ranger. This new system builds off the factory suspension mounting points and offers improved strength, ground clearance and suspension travel. All components have been engineered in unison to ensure suspension and drivetrain geometry is maintained, rather than other “leveling kits” on the market that just throw in a top spacer which maxes out the angles at droop. The new ride height is the result of a combination of a specially designed top mounted steel fabricated strut spacer in conjunction with a  preload spacer for a total 2.5” of front lift. The reason for the combination is to achieve the correct ride height without increasing the overall extended length of the strut assembly too the point of causing premature wear of the CV axle boots and other front end components. To further ensure proper drivetrain geometry the front differential is repositioned using relocation brackets. These brackets correct CV axle angle while allowing the use of the factory front skid plates. In the rear the factory shocks are replaced with your choice of precision tuned NX2 gas or FOX 2.0 performance IFP gas shocks for improved damping.

Optional accessories include the BDS performance upper control arm (UCA) kit and the soon to be released 1” HD rear shackle kit. All kits come finished in a durable black e-coat finish and sent with all hardware packs to complete the install along with step-by-step installation instructions. All BDS kits include Factory Protection Plus for the ultimate extended warranty to include BDS’s No Fine Print Warranty, ESC System compatibility and a 5year-60mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your 2019 Ford Ranger with these new 2.5” lift systems from BDS Suspension.

Product Announcement

BDS Suspension adds new 3.5” UCA lift systems designed to take advantage of the stout factory front suspension design on the 2019 Ford Ranger. This new system builds off the factory mounting points and offers improved strength, ground clearance and  suspension travel. The new ride height is the result of a combination top mounted steel fabricated strut spacer along with preload spacer for a total 3.5” of front lift. The reason for the combination is to achieve the correct ride height without increasing the overall extended length of the strut assembly too the point of causing premature wear of the CV axles and other front end components. Also supplied for the front end are a pair of performance upper control arms (UCAs) designed for improved strength and suspension travel. Built from thick wall 1.5” DOM tubing, these UCAs utilize an indexed ball joint cup to reposition the upper ball joints and allowing more droop travel. These arms come fully assembled right out of the box with high quality greaseable Moog ball joints and Clevite rubber bushings for long life, quiet operation and superior corrosion resistance over uniballs and heims. Finishing out the front of these 3.5” systems is a small differential relocation to help further improve CV axle operating angle.

In the rear of these lift systems the factory leaf springs are retained and 1” lift comes from a heavy duty replacement shackle. These shackles are built from high strength 3/8” steel and have the benefit of leveling the stance, correcting rear pinion angle and allowing for increased rear suspension travel. Also supplied for the rear of these 3.5” lift kits are your choice of specially tuned NX2 nitro series gas shocks or FOX 2.0 IFP performance series gas shocks for improved damper performance. All kits come finished in a durable black e-coat finish and sent with all hardware packs to complete the install along with step-by-step installation instructions.

All BDS kits include Factory Protection Plus for the ultimate extended warranty to include BDS’s No Fine Print Warranty, ESC System compatibility and a 5year-60mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your 2019 Ford Ranger with these new 3.5” UCA lift systems from BDS Suspension.

2019 Ford Ranger 2" Leveling Kits

BDS Suspension adds to its lineup of heavy duty upper control arms (UCA) with new kits available for the new 2019 Ford Ranger trucks. These new UCAs are designed for improved strength, great looks, and increased suspension droop travel. They are built from high strength 1.5" OD x .120-wall tubing, fully welded for strength and durability. They use an indexed ball joint cup to correct the ball joint positioning for when used with leveling or full lift kits. The frame mounting ends feature durometer-specific rubber bushings for long laster durability and reduced NVHs. At the other end they utilize an indexed ball joint cup with premium quality MOOG ball joints for smooth, quiet operation and superior corrosion resistance to arms that feature uniballs, poly bushings or heims. These control arms come finished in a durable semi-gloss black powder coat and include a billet aluminum machined ball joint dust cap that can be removed to easily service the greasable ball joints. They integrate a mounting tab for the factory ABS lines so there's no need to zip tie the lines as is the case with other kits on the market. The control arms come fully assembled for easy install right out of the box compatible with most leveling and lift kits on the market to increase wheel travel.

With the 2019 model Ford Ranger returning for North American consumers the aftermarket support is following close behind. The first of several new lift kits and accessories to come available from BDS Suspension is this new 2.0” leveling kit allowing 285/70r17 tires to be installed. Specially designed for the new Ranger, this new kit is engineered for additional tire clearance and improved performance without overextending the suspension or driveline angles at full suspension droop (as is the case with other top mounted spacers and taller leveling kits on the market). The issue with most other kits is they increase the overall length of the strut assembly maxing out ball joints and causing the CV shaft/boot to operate at an extreme angle leading to premature wear/failure of the components. To get around this apparent issue the BDS kit uses a 2-piece design with a smaller top mounted steel strut spacer in combination with a preload spacer. The top mounted spacer installs easily and is finished in a durable black e-coating for a clean appearance. The preload spacer installs below the spring and raises the ride height without extending the overall extended length of the strut assembly while maintaining factory ride quality allowing you to get the most out of your new Ranger's factory suspension.

Also included in this new 2” leveling kit are a pair of precision tuned rear gas shocks to further enhance your Ranger’s performance. The BDS NX2 twin tube gas shocks come standard or can be upgraded to the FOX 2.0 performance series IFP shocks for race proven damper technology. Give your new Ranger the extra boost with this 2” leveling kit from BDS Suspension.

May 2019 brings the first ever Four Wheeler Overland Adventure!

This event will start in Wickenburg, Arizona on May 13, 2019 and will fill three days with off-roading, camping, and Arizona’s stunning scenery.  A professional guide has crafted the route to include a variety of terrain for any level of skill and overlanding vehicle sizes.

After the three-day off-roading adventure, Overland Adventure will host a banquet and free access to the 2019 Overland Expo West event. This event is the official event partner of the Overland Adventure. Along with these perks, participants will be invited to park their 4x4s in the exclusive “Four Wheeler Overland Adventure Camp” at the show. Great opportunity to show off your rigs!

BDS Suspension is the official suspension sponsor for the event. We will be attending with #ProjectRangerX and have plenty of giveaways available for participants. While at the Overland Expo West we’ll be having a party alongside FOX with Project RangerX  on display.

More details and registration will be announced later this month.

Four Wheeler Features Project Ranger X

Anybody that knows offroad knows Four Wheeler Magazine. Its one of the largest, longest running, offroad focused publications in existence keeping up on events, trends and industry news. The staff got wind of the BDS 2019 Ford Ranger project build (Project Ranger X)  for Ford’s Booth at SEMA and immediately showed interest this, the newest version of Ford’s midsize pickup offering full outfitted into a utilitarian motorsports themed adventure rig before most had ever laid eyes on the new truck. After checking out the truck at the show Four Wheeler wanted more and set up a time after the show to shoot a full feature on it. Earlier this week that feature story went live on FourWheeler.com giving everyone the inside scoop on Project Ranger X, the truck they affectionately refer to as a mullet. Check out the feature online at (Four Wheeler – BDS’s 2019 Ford Ranger) and keep an eye out for it in an upcoming print issue of the Four Wheeler.
