BDS suspension

Hey, everyone I am new to owning a Jeep, I was recently looking for lifts in the 3-4 inch range and after looking through quadratec, 4wd etc, I stopped at some local customization shops. They all seem to offer BDS suspensions. I searched the forums but didn't find anything on them. They offer a lifetime warranty on everything they make (no fine print is their tagline). I am just trying to figure everything out. My other options were the Skyjacker 4" standard which was shot down by some techs I spoke with and the 3.5 RE without the control arms. The BDS I was looking at is also without control arms.

Initially I had planned on doing the install myself as I have int he past done some of this stuff. After reading the literature and this being my only means of transportation now i started to lean towards having someone else install it.

Thanks for all the input.

I have had the Black Diamond Lift for about 5 months now and I like it. It rides and handles good. I put 33x12.5 BFG's on with it. I don't have my computer with me to post any pics.

bds is a good product
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

RE 3.5 standard system. 5 stars levels out to a 4.25-4.5" of lift and put a 1" body and transfer case drop, stuff some 35's in there and ur set. RE makes awesome lifts a lil pricy but well worth it. over time they have the least sag on your springs. and go for the mono-tube shocks or OME the ride quality is a lot better than the Twin-tubes

RE is one of the best. You can get the short arms now and up grade to the long arms later.
This is why I think RE is the Best.
