BDS lifts?

Just wondering what everyone thinks of BDS lifts? Used to be known more commonly by their full name, Big Dick's Suspension. I guess even a truck suspension lift manufactorer has to be a little PC nowadays.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Anyways, just wondering who has experience with their lifts. I've not seen a whole lot about their stuff compared to other lift manufactorers stuff, but all of it has been positive. Their website:

I'm interested in their Chevy/GMC lifts, since that is what I own, but any experiences with their lifts on any make/model is appreciated. Thanks!

Re: BDS lifts?

Stay away from their crap! I had one of there lifts and it was worn out in less than a year. Their so called one line warrenty is a joke. They would not even return my phone calls or emails. Best answer I ever got was basically "it's not our problem". BDS is JUNK. Don't give them the pleasure of robbing another four wheeler. I no longer have that vehicle but saw it yesterday and the rear end is still sagging down on top of the tires. I've installed a lot of lift kits and for the money the easiest to install and actually seems to hold up well is ProComp. Yes believe it or not, ProComp. I've installed ProComp, Trailmaster, BDS, Rancho, Superlift, etc. I think Skyjacker is the only one I haven't installed.

I am impressed with the Skyjacker Guys when they show up for an event. Those pretty rigs don't just sit there for show. They USE them and ABUSE them. They even rolled one of them at the Round Up this year. Seeing how they test their suspensions I will probably go that route next time I buy a Lift Kit for myself.

Re: BDS lifts?

Contrary to others the BDS kit is by far one of the best out. Ask around and you will find supporters as well as non-supporters. We install 'em and they work great! I'd also check out Skyjacker they offer a great ride as well. This is not only my personal opinion but my professional one too!
