Driver side is in. Damn rain is killing me. Should finish it next week. Axle got pushed an inch or two forward which is nice. Love how the arms look should flex and ride awesome!

Moving that axle forward and having a more true straight up and down travel will be awesome!

Nice job sticking with it through the rain and weather.

Looks great Spokes. You will really like the long arms and the extra lift. Can't wait to see it all finished up.

Ok... So as TJ posted its done and i got pics haha took a bunch for the lack of and i gave it a good bath today after work. It was green from the pollen lol

The jeep rides and flexed amazing! its like a new jeep! I probably gained about 1" of lift in the front from the axle being pushed forward from the new arms. the front takes bumps like a caddy! The rear needs some work but thatll come in time lol i would def recommend the BDS kit to anyone. thing is super tough and well built. i cant wait to get it in the rocks!

anyways... pics...

Sitting flat

Looks good dude, that really is a nice setup. Much better than all the radius arm offerings out there. Rocking Big Dick's Suspension hard!
