BDS 4” Lift Kit & Accessories

2014 Dodge Ram 3/4-ton 4WD

Coldwater, MI—December 20, 2013— BDS Suspension is proud to announce the newest edition to our full line of suspension lifts and off-road accessories, the FIRST TO MARKET BDS 4″ Suspension Lift Systems to fit 2014 RAM 2500 4WD trucks equipped with front coil sprung radius arm and rear coil sprung multi-link suspension.

In record time the engineers at BDS Suspension have developed, tested, and manufactured this latest offering for the new 3/4-ton RAM trucks. The front of this kit is designed around BDS’s unique radius arm relocation bracket that allow for simple installation while providing the strength and durability of a full replacement radius arm mount. Built from laser cut 1/4″ steel, the new relocation bracket tie into both the factory radius arm frame mount and the side of the frame rail for a rigid mount to reposition the OE radius arm for caster correction and an overall improvement to suspension geometry.

In addition to the radius arm relocation, the kit includes everything needed to properly lift the new 2014 Ram 2500 trucks to clear up to a 37″ tire. The additional height comes from a pair of specially designed progressive rate ProRide coil springs. These progressive rate coils are engineered to improve ride quality and performance across all terrains while holding up to the rigors that 3/4-ton truck owners demand. Due to the unique factory coil mount design on the new radius arm equipped trucks BDS has developed left and right side-specific coils to improve performance and eliminate coil bowing. Also up front, a heavy duty fabricated front track bar bracket, forged drop pitman arm and black e-coated brake line relocation hardware are included to reposition all steering and brake components to work with the addition ride height and allow this truck to perform flawlessly on and off-road.

New for 2014, the RAM 2500 has done away from the traditional leaf spring rear suspension in favor of a multi-link, coil spring suspension similar in design to that of the ’09-up RAM 1500 trucks. For this particular new system, the rear lift is achieved by installing a pair of heavy duty steel fabricated 2.5″ coil spacers that bolt directly on the factory coil spring axle mount to retain the ride characteristics provided by the OE coils. An axle mounted track bar relocation bracket repositions the track bar to recenter the rear axle. Rounding out this kit are a pair of extended sway bar links to keep the rear sway bar at the optimum operating angle and your choice of BDS-5500 hydraulic or Fox 2.0 performance gas shocks at all 4 corners.

Available Accessories

BDS is also offering a number of accessories to fit the new 2014 RAM 2500 trucks. Both single and dual steering stabilizer kit are available to meet your on-road and off-road performance needs. Available in both 5500-series (white body) and 9500-series (brushed stainless body) the stabilizers improve drivability by reducing front end shimmy caused by oversized tires and mount above the tie-rod for extra protection when offroad. In addition to steering stabilizers, BDS offers a heavy duty adjustable front track bar to allow you to dial in the the front axle positioning. Constructed from 1-3/8? solid steel stock this new adjustable track bar is built to handle on and off-road abuse and uses a 1-3/8″-12 fine threaded pinch bolt design turnbuckle to allow easy tuning to properly recenter the front axle for a range of lift heights. The track bar is formed for proper clearance around critical front end components and features gusseted ends for additional rigidity. The ends utilize high-durometer polyurethane bushings with thick-walled steel sleeves for strength and reliability.

All BDS kits are backed by Factory Protection Plus, a comprehensive drivetrain warranty that brings together BDS No Fine Print Warranty and a 5-year, 60,000 mile drivetrain protection coverage, included at no extra cost. For more info on the new 4″ lift kit and other options for the 2014 RAM 2500 4WD trucks, head to BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.

    I would never buy this kit because I don’t like level trucks. If I get a kit I want to lift the front 4″ and the back an equal or close to equal amount. Offer this kit with a 4″ front and a 3-4″ lift in the rear and you have my business.

      @Jeremiah: We offer a number of rear options for our kits, you likely want the 4” rear kit (typically used in our 6” lift kit) to retain the tail high stance. For more info contact us at (517) 279-2135 or head to your local BDS dealer.

    Coil spacers are used to improve ride quality and performance.

      The rear coil spacer is used in this kit to retain the OE ride quality of the rear suspension along with front progressive rate coils

    With this lift and 37’s what is the overall height of a 2014 ram15004x4? How would this drive vs your 6″ lift? I was going to go with the 6 because I want the 37″ tires.

      Hey Don, this kit listing is for the 2014 3/4-ton truck, not the 1/2-ton Ram. We also have a 4” kit to fit the 2014 Ram 1500s, however I don’t know the overall height of the truck once lifted and tires installed. Your best bet is to measure your tuck as it sits now, add 6” plus half the difference in tire size (i.e. 37” tires – 31” stock tires = 6” difference or 3” of extra height). For more on our kit for hte 2014 Ram 1500s head to our website at

    I was wondering if 35’s on a 20×12 wheel with -44 offset will fit with no rubbing with this 4 inch lift.

      Doug, being that we haven’t tested that particular wheel/tire setup we can’t guarantee it would fit without any fender/bumper modification.

    DO YOU HAVE A 6″ LIFT FOR A 2014 RAM 3500 AND A 2500

      BDS Suspension at | | Reply

      Hey John, we do offer 6” lifts for the new radius arm equipped 2014 RAM 2500 and 2013 RAM 3500 trucks. At this point RAM hasn’t released the ’14 3500 trucks so we haven’t been able to confirm compatibility with the new ’13 3500 kits, however I’d assume they will be the same. For more info on the kits head to the BDS website or call (517) 279-2135

    With the 4″ lift what set up do you have to have to run 37″ tires. Would 37×12.50×20 fit with no rubbing and will it also have the same towing capacity as factory/ ride

    1. BDS Suspension
      BDS Suspension at | | Reply

      Hey Matt, 37×12.50×20 can clear on the 4” lift, however it is dependent on the wheels you use. For clearance you will need to stick to our wheel size/backspacing recommendations, Otherwise our 6” lift may be a better option for you. Either way the kits are designed to offer a great ride with progressive rate coils. In the rear we offer both coil spacer to retain the factory ride quality/load capacity as well as replacement progressive rate coils to improve offroad performance. If you have any other questions on the kits and available options head on over to the BDS website or give us a call at (517) 279-2135.


    The 4″ and 6″ 2014 Dodge 2500 kits are gonna be MONSTEROUS this year.. Good Job guys!!

      @Landon, 22” Helo HE879 wheels

    What are the specs on the wheel and tire combo shown on this truck? (i.e. Tire size, wheel size/backspacing/offset)

    1. BDS Suspension
      BDS Suspension at | | Reply

      @Colton, the truck shown was a customer’s truck running the 4” lift kit, 37×13.50×22 Nitto Mud Grapplers and 22×10 Helo HE879 wheels. You’ll have to check with Helo on the backspacing/offset specs. They were a bit outside of our recommended wheel/tires and did rub a bit with just the 4” kit.

    I have a 2014 RAM 2500, will Helo 879 20×9 rims backspace 5.71″ with +18mm offset and Dick Cepek Fun Country 37×12.50R20LT
    work with no rubbing issues?

      @Todd, the wheels are a bit outside our recommended spec, but they should work just fine on your truck with little to no trimming. For more on our recommended specs head to

    Do you have a kit that is compatible with the 2014 power wagon?

      We haven’t test fit kits on the 2014 Ram 2500 Powerwagon yet, but we have had customers confirm fitment of our standard kits on the 2014 PW models. You’ll want to follow our gas truck listings for kit info, we’re currently offering a 2”, 4” and 5.5” kit for the gas RAM 2500s. More info is available on our website or you can contact us directly at (517) 279-2135

    Will any of these kits work with the 2014 Ram Powerwagon. If not is there a lift being made or thought about. Any info would help. Thanks

      Unfortunately we haven’t had the opportunity to personally test fitment on the 2014 RAM 2500 Powerwagon trucks, which is why it currently isn’t listed on our website. We have heard from several customers that installed BDS gas-RAM kits on the new RAM PW without issue. Contact BDS tech support for more info at (517) 279-2135 or

    I had Michiana Auto Pros out of Mishawaka, IN lift two 2014 Jeep Wranglers last year and they did a great job! Now I bought a 2015 Ram 2500 diesel and i plan on having them install a 4″ lift and bags in the rear just to bump up the rear a little. When i bought my truck i had the dealer put a level kit on it but i didn’t like it setting level so i ordered just the rear 4″ lift kit and i like the the way it sits, well i want it a little higher. I’m running Duratrac 325/60R20 on Vision 20×9 Furys. I had to trim the inner fender a little, no big deal. If i stick with 20×9 rims and Nitto Grapplers 37×12.5/20″ will the truck look good and have enough gap or will it look like it’s squatting or higher? You guys are leading the market in quality! I’ve bought 5 lifts in the past 4 years and everyone of them is top notch! Thank you.

      Thanks for the continued support Bill. Make sure to send in photos of your rides to our customer gallery at so we can feature them on our social media sites. On you questions about fitting 37s with the 4” lift kit, it can redone however you’ll need to follow our backspacing recommendations which calls for 20×9 with 5.625” BSing.
