We love hearing how our distributors and customers use there rigs, how they customize them and where it takes them. Recently the crew from BDS distributor, Cabot Tire sent us some shot of a JK they built running the BDS 6.5” long arm lift kit, 2” coil spacer, and 2” body lift on 41.5” IROKs.
We love to hear (and see) what you do with your BDS-equipped rides. We recently came across a YouTube video of a 3” BDS Lifted JK running 35s on a snow covered logging trail in Alberta, Canada. Here’s what they had to say about the kit:
Coldwater, MI—August 10, 2012— The 2012 Wrangler has proven itself to be a formidable offroad vehicle in stock form. To improve its capabilities BDS Suspension now offers the redesigned 4/4.5″ long arm suspension lift kits for the 2-door and 4-door model 2012 Wranglers.
The heart of this system is the new longer 4-link design, built to outperform the competition both on and off-road. New mounts are made from 1/4″ thick steel and work with the new heavy-duty lower flex arms and adjustable upper flex arms to maximize suspension travel and optimize handling characteristics. BDS Pro-Ride coils improve the overall ride quality and offer full coil bind capability for longevity no matter how you use or abuse them.
These lift kits also include a set of ultimate sway bar disconnects (links for Rubicon models), front and rear braided stainless steel kevlar lined brake lines, drop pitman arm, bump stop extensions, track bar brackets, and your choice of BDS 5500 hydraulic or Fox 2.0 gas shocks.
Optional accessories for these lift kits include front and rear adjustable track bars and steering stabilizer upgrades.
As with all BDS lift kits it is covered under the No Fine Print Warranty. For more info on this product and other suspension options for your new Jeep Wrangler, check out BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.

A few weekends back BDS Suspension made the trip out to Adam’s Jeep in Aberdeen, MD for the 10th Annual Adam’s Jeep Jam. Each year we’ve attended this event the attendance has continued to grow with over 300 Jeeps making it out for a day of festivities. Some of the highlights include the offroad obstacle course and mud pit, show-n-shine and a huge raffle. The always popular car crush pile was back again giving participants the ability to get their rigs and feel like monster truck drivers. BDS Rep Jeff Chatfield brought the BDS Dodge, BDS Ultimate Adventure TJ, and displays to set up in the vendor area and hung out all day talking to customers and answer questions. Adam’s Jeep is an all in one dealership that also offers aftermarket accessories. They had a number of BDS-equipped Jeeps on the lot for sale and even more showed up for the event which is always great to see. BDS gave away a 3” JK lift in the raffle, congrats to the lucky winner! All in all it was a great event, great weather, and a great turnout for the 10th Annual Adam’s Jeep Jam. Thanks to everyone made it out and stopped by the booth to say hi!
Coldwater, MI—April 20, 2012— BDS is excited to release a new style alignment cam far superior to the tradition eccentric cams. The new OctoCam alignment cam washers allow for 5-position adjustability for caster on the front axle or pinion angle on the rear axle. The cams work with the factory control arm hardware and will not slip under load like traditional eccentric cam setups can. Available in sets of four, each set of OctoCams will complete one axle.
