Have you seen these Long Arms?

Anyone running/seen these long arms? Look like a great deal and the cross member drops without the arms.

I like that they mount on the bottowm and sides of the uniframe rather than just the bottom like Clayton's.

I'm not a fan of radius arms, but it looks like a solid kit. Definitely better than IRO, RC, and RE.

I almost had my mind made up to go with BDS long arms but these are cheap enough and seem like a good deal but I've never heard of them which worries me.

Cant see the picture at work.

Welds look awfully sunken for something I'm gonna spend $800 on. I can't see paying that much money from a backyard welder when a couple hundred more will get you better long arms from a reputable vendor.

You've never heard of BDS? They've been around since at least the late 90s when I got into 4x4s.

You should look into them. Top of the line parts with a great warranty. They're under a larger umbrella with other companies I'm sure you've heard of: Zone Offroad, JKS, 4x4 Posi-Lok.

Yes I've heard of them.

Meant that I was going with BDS but reconsidered when I saw these. Looks like nobody likes them which leads me back to my original choice.

BDS long arm upgrade FTW

I went back and read it again and it made perfect sense. Sorry about that. Looking forward to pics with the LAs installed!
