I really like the BDS lift, the flex it sweet, the WARRANTY, and the control arms are BEEFY.The sway bar disconnects are extremely easy and quick, even disco'd in the inclined driveway. in the pix i could of went some more but break lines got tight.

Many say the BDS is a stiff suspension... and yes it, my neighborhood has some really bad roads and the jeep ride is rough. IMO it is was a littler rougher than my bro in laws TJ (stock shocks, 32x10's, 2" spacer lift). So the Shocks are a little stiff, I personally like it, not a fan of a "Mushy" ride. If you want a "softer" ride from what i hear go Old man emu shock$$. Its a jeep not a caddie, I like the stiffness even driving around town, yes its my DD. I don't get much body roll with the stiff suspension, unless I'm disco'd.

I do have the lower control arms, wish i would of went with adjustable arms. I am going to stick with BDS i am very pleased with the performance. Getting thier ADJ UCA's with flex ends soon. so i can do a TT and SYE.

you can always get control arms later on with a 3" lift. they have flex arms that look really sweet. Scroll down and look for "Flex Arms"

good luck with ur jeep if you have any other questions just ask.

I haven't done anything to it all winter man and nothing major coming since I just bought a new snowboard, hitting up breck, keystone, and copper mountain during spring break.

I still need to install my BL and MML, going to try in do it during spring break. saving up for a metal cloak bumper w/stinger so hopefully that soon.

Can't believe i got caught staring and I'm going to have to look around for my bro in laws old TJ. Have you done any wheeling lately?

BL and MML is easy, takes about 2 hours.

You won't be seeing it any time soon. The new owner recently deployed. Active AGE troop.

okay I'll have to let him know, did the BL and MML Last night took me way longer the 2hrs . The BL was easy enought but the MML gave me some trouble, but I got it done, I think it looks kinda funny, and I can't shift into reverse, had to remove the plastic bezel around the leather shif boot, going to take it off for now and drive around with a big whole in the floor.

How I'm rolling around now till I get off the boot


How far it goes back with out the plastic bezel


How far it goes back past the bezel, about half an inch


Front B4 BL


Front After BL


Rear B4 BL

I had to take my bezel off to around my shifter, seems to work better with everything removed from around it.

I heard that when yout do a TT it allows you to put the bezel back on, so i decided not not to try n bend or grind the shifter. Just gonna roll around witht the big hole in the Jeep for now.
