Price: $700.00
Pros: Love it so far, really easy to install alone in my garage. Haven't had a chance to really wheel it yet since I just finished up the alignment yesterday, but the ride is better than stock and I actually gained a touch over 4" with a 3" lift.
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I'll write up a better review after I get to wheel it.

Comments: I really enjoy this kit. Good quality components and no issues so far. The no B.S warranty really gives good piece of mind and from what i've heard, they really do stand by their products

Pros: Complete kit was ready, thus eliminating the need to search around for parts.
Cons: None yet. Finished install today.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Took me significantly longer than 6 hours, however this was my first lift kit install, didn't have all the tools, and worked by myself most of the time. When it's all said and done I would highly recommend this kit so far. Can't beat the BDS warranty.

Pros: Military Discount 10% Nice. Great kit, new hardware, overall impressed.
Cons: Shocks seemed a little on the cheap side when installing, but feel fine driving.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have only been driving this lift for a week, and no wheeling yet, but the kit installed great, and I was really impressed with the new hardware. It felt good to be replacing some of the old stuff I took off, and I could use the BFH with no worry on the old bolts. The instructions are thorough and have good pictures. Took 4 guys with a 4 point lift and high jackstands about 6 hours, 1 whole hour devoted to a stubborn shock tower of mine. Handled well with only slight vibrations before alignment. I expect them to go away after an alignment and new tires and wheels next week.

Pros: Freaking Awesome Flex, Great Ride
Cons: No Stabilizer Bar included
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Excellent Lift kit, very easy install and very complete, only option I wish it had was steering stabilizer. The Quick release sway bar works Great and easy, was some clunking at first but it went away once the springs settled.

Super Flexy, So muhc more capable over stock now with the added flex and lift.

Comments: I received free shipping to my local 4x4 store and tax free with a JF discount. Unreal!

Incredible ride, softer than my rubicon springs and budget boost. BDS is awesome, dont believe all the advertising hype about big lift companies, BDS is the best. Install pics in my build thread (link in signature).
