If you didn’t catch this past weekend’s PowerBlock on Spike TV you missed a great episode of Extreme 4×4 with Ian Johnson prepping a 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 diesel service truck into a bad ass chase truck for Jeep Speed Racing. Among the upgrades was a BDS Suspension 7” high clearance, no torsion bar drop lift kit with optional leaf springs and Fox 2.0 shocks, upgraded steering components, Mickey Thompson wheels and tires, G2 gears, Road Armor bumpers, and a Warn winch. If your DVR didn’t pick it up then head on over to PowerBlock TV to check out the episode on your computer or mobile device.
Check out the 900+ hp BDS equipped Duramax in the pages of Diesel Power this month. This ’08 GMC Sierra 2500HD owned by Nils MacArthur is sporting a laundry list and a half worth of custom parts and bolt on accessories. Suspension comes in he form of a BDS 6″ lift kit (pre-high clearance no torsion bar drop kit), BDS SS skid plate, and BDS traction bars. The rig is primarily used up in the oil field of Alberta, Canada and is one bad ass ride for sure. Read the full feature on this truck in the Aug.’12 issue of Diesel Power Magazine on newsstands now.
We leaked this photo a couple weeks back, and tonight’s the night to see how it came to be. Check out Offroad Overhaul tonight on the Outdoor Channel to see Markus Voegler’s 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Powerwagon get an off-road makeover before hitting the trails. BDS jumped on board with a 4” long arm suspension lift kit (comparable to a 6” long arm for standard 2500) while others provided wheels, tires, lights, and more. See the buildup and all the action tonight on Offroad Overhaul on the Outdoor Channel! To see Markus’s Testimonial, check out the link.

Truckmaster Distributing, home of BDS Suspension, Zone Offroad Products, 4×4 Posi-Lok and numerous other quality 4×4 product lines is in the process of moving into their new biggerdigs. Here’s what Truckmaster’s President, Steve Olmstead had to say:
Truckmaster Distributing continues to add new products and new product lines to better serve our customers. Over the past several years we have seen our business explode to the point we cannot hire one more associate nor put in any more inventory simply because we’ve run out of space. On the one hand this can be viewed as a really positive thing. But when our business has been built on shipping the same day and never being out, lack of space has begun to affect our core principles.
The solution… buy a bigger building, and we did! The new facility is still located in Coldwater, MI and is nearly double the size of our current facilities. The new 70,000+ sq. ft. facility will give us the ability to move administrative, sales, marketing, engineering, production, warehousing and shipping under one roof in the future. We plan to make the trasition without a lapse in service. We appreciate your patience as we begin the move and we look forward to being able to better serve our customers in the near future.
Coldwater, MI – April 30, 2012 - Now in its second season, Off-Road Overhaul continues to seek out deserving 4×4 owners and make over their rides with a slew of aftermarket products. After the buildup, host Mike Duval takes the rig and its proud owner out for some 4wheeling to test it all out. Watch tonight as they overhaul a 2006 Jeep Wrangler with the help of BDS Suspension and others. What’s on the table for this Jeep build… well you will have totune in to find out.
