Look for the BDS booth at SEMA - #30207
If you’ve ever had the desire to meet the great people from BDS Suspension face to face, and are planning on attending the 2009 SEMA Show, this year you’ll have the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. For the first time ever, BDS will be a full-fledged exhibitor. Located in booth #30207, not only will you be able to view first hand our best-selling TJ Long Arm Kit, you’ll also see and touch the BDS TJ, just back from the recently completed Ultimate Adventure, where BDS served as the 2009 Suspension Sponsor.
In addition, you’ll be given the opportunity to preview the new BDS website. This site remains one of the most complete and easy to use, with a new format and many new features. We’ll offer live demonstrations of how this site will enable even a rookie salesperson to build a custom system and easily close the sale.
Finally, you’ll want to see us to take advantage of the SEMA Show discounts being offered for orders placed during the show. You’ve read this right; any order of $750 or more placed at the show will earn you additional discounts on product selections you can easily turn into cash flow.
BDS is experiencing one of our best years ever and we’d like to share the excitement with you! Stop by booth #30207. Join us in conversation about your experiences and discover the American made BDS difference.
We took the BDS Tundra with a 7” lift along with our displays out to OK Auto’s “OKtober Truckfest” which was great success. The weather cooperated with us, the turnout was great, and the vehicles were amazing! Ok Auto does an awesome job putting the show together.
The front parking lot was full of vendors showing the off their wares, a singing duet for additional entertainment and the local fire department had a food tent going to keep everyone happy! A few folks besides the R/C crowd made way to the rock pile to show off their driving skills during the show. Ok Auto also had a table full of trophies to give out at the end of the show along with other prizes such as a BDS gift certificate for suspension products.
It was a fun weekend, some real good conversations and I urge anyone that has a chance to go to one of their shows, a great time was had by all!
The truck looks and rides awesome. Your company makes a good product. Everyone I have talked to seems to have nothing but good things to say about BDS. I have about 600 miles on my truck now since it was lifted and probably 100+ miles of that is on rough back country dirt roads and some miles on 4×4 trails only. With the 35×12.50R18 Toyo Open Country M/T tires I had minimal rubbing on the stock front mud flaps but I took those off and now there is no rubbing. The rims have a -14 backspace which equals about a 5 1/2″ backspace. I have driven through ditches as I was turning and have had no rubbing since I removed the front mud flaps. Good job on an awesome product! I am very impressed.
