3" BDS Lift...?

Im considering a 3" BDS Lift kit to fill my desire for 33s. Will i need a 1" BL on top of that? Also should I get the ultimate kit which includes adjustable upper and lower arms, stainless steel brake lines, front adjustable track bar, and sway bar disconnect. For an additional $500?? I like the idea of an all inclusive kit so i can do it right the first time. Any comments or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Anything else i need to get? Thanks

I am debating on the same lift as I already have a 1" BL. I too want 33s. I will be watching this thread.

If you can get all the control arms and track bar I would do it..It will make it a more complete kit..Having the rear adjustable upper control arms will make setting the rear pinion angle easy to help with drive line vibes..

BDS lifts give a little more lift than they say..I clear 33" tire with my 3" lift just fine..

You don't need the 1" BL with the 3" BDS suspension, to clear 33s.

You do need a 1" BL if you install the 2" BDS lift and want to clear 33s.

You don't NEED a 1" BL to clear 33s. You'll still need 2" front and rear bumpstop extensions tho. The all inclusive kit sounds like a good plan...the control arms might not be ideal, and the track bar will probably hit your diff cover...but add those 2" bumpstops front and rear, and the track bar might clear, and you'll have room for 33s

You do not need the 1" body lift. I actually have the 3" BDS suspension lift. I also have 33's as well. I only needed a steering stabilizer and pitman because of the dw that happened later. Great lift kit though
