    I’m thinking of ordering a 2016 ram outdoorsman with the 3.0 ecodiesel. Would I void my factory warrant if I get the 4 inch lift? Or should I wait until my factory warranty runs out?

      Hey Ron, thanks for your interest in BDS Suspension. That’s a common question we get asked and by law a lift kit doesn’t effect the vehicles warranty. The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act covers the consumer stating the dealer cannot deny warranty due to an accessory/modification without proving how the accessory/modification is directly related to the failure of an OEM part. While each dealership has different rules for what modified trucks they’ll sell on their trucks, we work with dealerships around the world running our 4” and 6” kits on brand new dealership vehicles.

      That said you have a few additional benefits to our kits. All BDS kits are backed by Factory Protection Plus (http://560plus.com). FPP brings together BDS’s no fine print warranty on BDS parts, compliance with the government’s FMVSS No.126 standard for ESC Systems (our kit has been proven to not adversely effect how the vehicles electronic stability control system when installed), and finally all our kits come backed by a 5-year, 100,000-mile drivetrain warranty to match the OEM warranty in the case the dealership tries to deny warranty claim for any reason.

      Hey Blaine,
      That RAM 1500 was running our 4” air ride lift kit, 35×12.50 Atturo M/Ts and 20×9 Mickey Thompson Sidebiters

    Quiero un kit para traerlo a Panamá. Como lo traigo?

      Hola Daniel,
      Actualmente no tenemos distribuidores en Panamá y no enviamos a nivel internacional. Usted tendría que utilizar un corredor con un barco de Estados Unidos para la ubicación o comprar a un distribuidor que exporta los kits de ascensor.

      Hi Daniel,
      Currently we don’t have any distributors in Panama and don’t ship internationally. You would need to use a broker with a US ship to location or buy from a dealer that exports the lift kits.

    I installed a BDS 6 kit on my RAM 1500 ecodiesel. Very worried for the front drive shaft, has become a steep work angle. Is it baptismal for my shaft?

      Hey Roman, with the 4″ and 6″ lift kits installed the front differential is relocated roughly 4″ lower. The front driveline will be at an increased angle from stock, but it won’t cause issues as the driveline is able to function at that angle without issue. The front driveline works in combination with our billet driveshaft spacer to proper length under your RAM 1500. For more on this topic contact BDS sales/tech support at (517) 279-2135.

    set of BDS 6 (dk_671H.jpg) on RAM 1500 EcoDiesel. 2014. The corner of a forward power shaft became critical. How to me will affect a power shaft, forward?

    Hello. I have a set of BDS 6 Fox 2.0 on RAM 1500 ecodiesel. I want to make the nose of the car lower, can I install the front gear mounts from the BDS 4 kit?

      Hey Roman, I had already responded to your duplicate question on Facebook, but to answer it again… Both the 4″ and 6′ kits use the same base components so you can install the 4″ front strut mount spacers with your current kit, to set the front up at 4″ of lift. For more on the topic you can contact our customer service dept at

    Would the 4″ fit 36×13.5 irok on stock 20″ wheels?

    1. Carter @ BDS Suspension
      Carter @ BDS Suspension at | | Reply

      Hey Craig, that tire/wheel combo is outside of what we have tested at this point on the 4″ lift kit. We spec the 4″ lift kits to fit up to 35×12.50 tires on 20×9 wheels w/ 5″ backspacing. While the factory 20s can be reinstalled with the lift, we spec it only for stock sized tires. Wider tires may have a clearance issue with our steering knuckles due to the larger backspacing of the stock wheels.

    Hey, i have a 6inch suspension lift. I have 35×12.50 on it now. My question is and I’m debating I want to put 37inch tires, would it fit? Would I have clearance issue? I do a lot of 4 wheeling up the mountain and I’m afraid I will have rubbing issue with 37’s.. I’m thinking putting on 37×12.50 toyo mt.. would that fit on my 6inch lift?

      Hey Ness, just to be clear you’re referencing a late model RAM 1500, correct? One factor on tire fitment will be wheel width/backspacing. We spec the 6″ lift kit to allow fitment of up to 37×12.50 tires on 9″ wide wheels with 5″ backspacing. Some minor trimming to the inner fender may be needed to maximize tire clearance which is common. For more on our recommended wheel/tire specs see http://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=671H

    I also looking to upgrade it to the coilover, what components do I need to get besides the coilover? Is there anymore to that?

      Hey Ness,
      So if you follow our wheel recommendations (info and link in my previous comment) you’ll be able to fit 37s on your RAM 1500 with our 6″ lift kit. As far as upgrading to the FOX 2.5 coilovers, its an easy upgrade as the OE strut/strut spacer is unbolted and the coilover is bolted in its place along with the reservoir mount. The coilovers come pretuned for optimal performance and are preset for 6″ of lift right out of the box. #88302073 is the coilover kit you’ll need. It includes (2) remote resi coilovers, resi mounting brackets and hardware. http://bds-suspension.com/product-display?sr=88302073

    Thank you,
    I already have a set of wheels whiich is 20×9 and 4.5 backspace with 35×12.50 tires on now.. my question is would it be ok if I run 37x 12.50 with that same wheel? Or do I need a new set of wheels with 5 backspace to run the 37’s?

    1. Carter @ BDS Suspension

      While 37×12.50 tires on your 20×9 wheels with 4.5″ BSing will fit, the smaller backspacing will require additional trimming to clear in all driving situations. Our recommendation is just that, a recommendation based on maximizing tire clearance.
