    @BDS I love this lift on the mega cabs. I’m getting ready to purchase a brand new laramie limited mega cab and want to put this lift on. I am also planning on putting on Toyo 40×15.50R22′s on it. My only question is this… So when you say that the “fenders will need to be trimmed”, do you mean the plastic or the actual fender? Also, what offset are those bmf wheels? Would 40′s fit with an American Force wheels 22×12 and a -40 offset?

    Is this the Dodge Mineral Gray Metallic or have you done a custom paint to it?

    First of all, I love my 6″ BDS Longarm set-up. I have a 2012 2500 Laramie Longhorn Limited and am running 35s on 20″ BMFs. I will probably go to 37s soon. While I love the lift, the only issue that I ran into was the mounting brackets for the longarms. The installer ended up having to weld them to the frame as they would “pop” when turning or going over any size bump in the road. This was a common occurrence with the BDS LA kit on any Ram 2500 or 3500. Other than this issue, everything is great!

    Robert, Ive personally installed about 10 of the BDS Long Arm kits & not a single one pops. I am willing to bet the installer didnt put the spacer washers between the frame & bracket, as each & every truck is different and/or he didnt seat the rivet nuts properly into the frame, which mount the bracket against the frame.

    Thanks for all the great feedback. BDS is the best and the ride with the 8″ Longarm and Fox 2.0 Shocks is amazing to say the least!!! All this time later and I still have nothing but great things to say about BDS and every product I got from them to include the traction bars, dual steering stabilizers and the triple front shock setup. I put that stuff through hell and it just keep taking it…

    I have the bds lift and its the best lift i ever had. I put that thing thru hell. My cheapo shocks are blown tho but have the fox 2.0 on the way. Curious on the difference in ride. Cant wait to try them. I have had 12″ bulletproof lift but bds is #1 in my book

    Have you guys ever added 2″ spacers to the 8″ BDS-LA Kit? If so, which brand? Was it cool, or did it create any unusual issues?

    Hey LJ, it’s a fairly common question we get asked as far as stretching our 8” long arm kit to 10”. We do offer a 2” coil spacer kit that can be used in conjunction with out 8” long arm kit, however there are other components that will need to be upgraded to allow the truck to function properly and sit level. BDS tech support is your best point of contact to discuss it at (517) 279-2135.
