About you, your 4x4 and access


The cross members are built from ¼” steel plate and have integrated differential mounts that work with the new provided differential mounts to properly reposition the front differential for optimal CV and front driveshaft angles. The whole package is protected by a new belly pan skid plate that runs from the front to rear crossmember and allows integration with the factory front skid/splash guard. The factory front struts are retained with the kit utilizing top strut spacer and preload spacer to gain the proper lift height.

To lift the rear, BDS supplies multiple lift block options with 3” and 4” sizes available as well as longer u-bolts, 5500-series shocks, and all the necessary brake line/wire relocation brackets. This system allows for up to 35×12.50 tires to be installed on 18×9 or 20×9 with 4.5” backspacing.

In addition to the  6” system, BDS is proud to also offer a complete 4” system as well. For more info on this product and to find the distributor nearest you, check out BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.

An optional rear kit levels the truck.

Estimated installation time is 2.5 hours for each end. Maximum recommended tire size at the tallest strut setting is 34x12.50. Stock wheels will fit.

Fox 2.0 Performance Series Shocks for BDS Lift Kits

The Fox 2.0 features specially formulated race oil and a cold-forged, metal impacted 6061 T6 aluminum body capable of dissipating heat 3 times faster than conventional steel body shock improving overall performance and longevity.

Case hardened 5/8’’ chrome shafts provide extreme durability and cnc-machined type II hard black anodized aluminum components provide a rugged fade free finish.

Unlike the emulsion shocks you may be familiar with, this new mono-tube performance shock features an internal floating piston (IFP) designed to separate Fox’s formulated race shock oil from the high-pressure nitrogen charged gas chamber.  This constant pressure eliminates oil aeration and foaming, providing a consistent, predictable ride under the roughest driving conditions with fade-free performance.

Designed and tested for BDS Suspension applications, these shocks are ready to bolt on and perform, not to mention look great right out of the box. Get the most out of your ride today with BDS Suspension and Fox 2.0 Performance Series shocks.

PARIS, April 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At INTERMAT 2009 today, Dana Holding Corporation (NYSE: DAN) introduced new hybrid drivetrain technology specifically engineered for off-highway vehicles.

A concept transmission in the evaluation phase, the Spicer(R) TE-15HX is an electric parallel hybrid that features a dual power path transmission control system. This system continuously monitors operating conditions and selects the proper combination of diesel and electric power to optimize productivity while reducing fuel consumption, emissions, noise, and engine idling.

Emission control is a key consideration for manufacturers of off-highway equipment as they develop new vehicles to meet evolving regulations around the world, including the European Union's Stage III/IV emission standards and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Tier 4 emissions standards.
