BDS Suspension

I have been on my BDS 3" kit for about 3 months now. I absolutely love it! Great for maintaining on road driving. I have made 2 trips of over 15 hours and 1 at 12 hours since then and all have been fine cruising at 75-80 mph on this lift and 35s. And you can't beat that warranty. I'm not sure where this is supposed to be posted, but great work BDS!

Thanks for the good words I'm dropping my 15 JK Sahara off to have the same lift installed. Did you upgrade shocks?

I've been on the BDS shocks so far, didnt upgrade to the Fox 2.0 that were available. I may still do it down the road, but so far these have been pretty good

Sure, here's one. I'll add that after about 5 months with this kit I love it! Great for someone that uses it as a DD but still wants some off road capability. It's a bit more reactive than the stock suspension, but personally I prefer that. You will be very pleased with this kit!

Did you spring for any of the adjustable or polly upper or lower arms?

Thanks for info on BDS system. Have done nothing to date with my 15 Rubicon, but just traded my F 350 for it. Not new to Jeeps and had a Teraflex in my last. Still torn between the Teraflex, AEV, Mopar, and now the BDS. Any thoughts and advice welcome. Doc Doug

Very happy with my BDS lift on my TJ. I have added Currie adjustable control arms and correctlync and will be swapping out the BDS quick disconnects in favor of a Currie Antirock as soon as I get nuts enough to cut my ORFAB stinger bumper. (Already have the Antirock)

No I didn't feel it was needed to have the adjustable or polly upper or lower arms done. The mechanic I go to is incredible and said its not necessary yet.

I was wondering the same thing. So you don't feel that your on road ride was compromised by not going with the upper/lower adjustable control arms?

I am dropping mine off on Monday for BDS 3", 35s and new wheels (I was going to do spacers but most on the forums advised me away from that.. My greatest worry is losing my steering.
