    Before all the haters sign on and chime in, this is an example of how things could have been handled...

I am not asking you to change your post or even your opinion of BDS but was hoping you would take this into consideration.
    Just sayin.

    Weird how I ran 37x13.5s for a while and never once installed a steering stabilizer, including the factory one and the Jeep drove great because I had the steering/front end dialed in correctly. Guess I️ was wrong..

    Clearly, if you had been designing, testing and using off-road products for 20 years, you would know better

    Mention of running dual stabilizers and the gold plated Fox ATS in the same post; just too much awesomeness to handle 🤣🤣🤣

Our kit is designed to mount above the tie rod so that it doesn’t effect overall ground clearance. There were several examples of it installed correctly on vehicles around the show to reference if you chose to do so. We’ve been offering this kit as well as OE replacement stabilizer and the FOX ATS for the JK for several years. While we pride ourselves in offering high-quality lift kits and accessories, not all products are designed strictly to enhance offroad performance. As the trend to run larger/wider wheels and tires continues it creates more of a need for a steering stabilizer capable of controlling them on the road as well. When installed correctly this dual stabilizer offers improved steering control without the feedback associated with oversized tires/wheels. You’re entitled to your opinion, but questioning our entire company base on an incorrectly installed part on a show vehicle that isn't ours seems a bit harsh. We’ve been in business for more than 20 years designing, testing and using our products on and off-road. We stand behind our products with a no fine print warranty. -BDS Suspension
    Your products for the JK are complete garbage. Go back to the drawing board or stick to the full size game.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
