More than a year in the making, the BDS engineering team saw a need in the market for more high-speed off-road performance suspension options. Alongside the shock experts at FOX, the BDS team has pushed the envelope to design, torture test, and ultimately validate a new 3" Velocity Series long travel IFS system for the late model Chevy/GMC 1500 trucks.
With SEMA here, it seemed like the right time to show what they had up their sleeve and debut Project Velocity, a late model Chevy Silverado 1500 outfitted with the 3" Velocity Series long travel system, rear trailing arms, and FOX 3.0 Factory Race Series coilovers at each corner with clearance for 37s. Designed as a complete solution for late-model GM1500 trucks, this kit will be offered in multiple configurations. The setup bolsters 3" increased front track width per side, with up to 14.5" front wheel travel and 15.5" vertical rear wheel travel (18" articulated). Built to tackle the desert while offering plush on-road comfort, the team at BDS is expecting mid-late 2023 to be shipping production kits.
BDS will have the truck out at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas from Nov. 1-4, in the FOX Factory booth #81298 (in front of the central hall, on the backside of eBay Motors Experience, formerly Ford Out Front). Stop by and check it out with the other killer builds on display.
