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.

BDS Suspension has teamed up with Ben Lifted 4WD, Mickey Thompson, Warn, and Iron Cross Automotive to help out the Villalobos Rescue Center with the move to their new location in the Tehachapi Mountains of California. The Villalobos Rescue Center, which is largely known for the show “Pit Bulls and Parolees” on the Animal Planet, has made improvements and has expanded into its new space. While the increased space was much needed, they’ve found it does come with some drawbacks. The terrain makes it difficult for the day to day operations as the vehicles kept getting stuck in the mud and snow. Their work vehicles consist of a ’93 Jeep Wrangler 4×4, a ’94 Chevy Tahoe 4×4, and a ’98 Dodge Ram 2500 4×4. With the help of BDS Distributor Ben Lifted 4WD providing all the installs, Tia and the crew at the Villalobos Rescue Center will be much more capable around their new facility. BDS Suspension is providing the lift kits, Mickey Thompson- the wheels and tires, Warn- the winches, and Iron Cross- the Bumpers. A much needed upgrade to a very deserving organization rescuing dogs and helping provide them with a better life, love and attention. Stay tuned for photos of the finished  trucks and the dogs!

The King of the Hammers is only a week away! WOW! Time fly’s when you’re having fun! After a few sleepless nights and eating dinner off the work bench our rig is race ready! At this point we could enter this thing in a “Show-n-Shine” competition, but it won’t look like this for long! That’s okay; chicks dig dents, dirt and scratches! We’ll be sure to post some photos of the pits and the race.

With the King of the Hammers race just two weeks away our crew at Pacific Fabrication continues to prep the truck to make sure it’s race ready.  Some of you may recognize this rig from the 2009 Petersen’s Ultimate Adventure covered in a few issues of the mag and of course the video.  Even the boss, “Jen” is putting in some time getting the bead locks ready for the big day!
