I can say without question that my Wrangler is the exception and not the norm when it comes to a lifted capable off roading rig.
I'm sure that would be a fun afternoon! Maybe we'll meet up at an event.

I know I could do better, just by reading the various reviews. But for an economical, yet quality kit, I love my BDS. And it is far superior to stock. It is firmer in the rear than front, I added weight up front and took some off (hard top) in the rear. But it's controlled and until I feel something better, I will continue to sing the praises of this lift.

Bds springs and shocks are very good.......but the rear dosnt ride its best unless the rear is heavily loaded down. Which is where OME comes into play.


Gixx.....its easy offloading used bds springs.....they are popular enough........ever think about sellin yours off and installing ome 2942'S? Or 41's? From selling off ur rear bds springs....the total investment would be really cheap.......and i bet your ride quality skyrockets. Cheap investment......major gain every second your in the jeep.

I could see doing that in the future. Right now I'm happy with my setup. Even on NJ's crappy roads it's really not bad. I'm not pogo'ing around. The BDS shocks seem to work nicely with the springs. Firm, but under control.
