    Bds suspension?

    Local shop is offering 1200 for parts and service on a 3" lift

    http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma...4&yr=2012-2013

    Anyone have any experience with this lift? Should I stick with a teraflex 2.5 BB?

    My jeep is a daily driver with offroading here and there on weekends (mainly beach sand and mud, not too much rock trails in my area)

    And they are telling me I won't need to upgrade the driveshaft.
    Looking to get 35's

    What yr is your jk? 2dr or 4? Regardless I'd stick with the 2.5 over the 3 simply cause .5 isn't worth $1200

    Bds suspension?

    My girlfriends dad has the 2.5" (maybe 2" idk for sure) on his 2012 JKUR and it is out of this world how smooth his ride is. Blows the factory ride out of the water in my opinion

    EDIT: he has the fox shocks, I don't know if those come with it or were an upgrade though.

    Cant comment on BDS lifts, but this lift is coils/shocks and exhaust spacers. A pretty basic install that can be done at home with basic tools. You could save that $400+ and put it towards other mods...or an extra payment on the jeep. It's also very rewarding to look back at your own work!
    Either way...good luck with the new rig!

    I would use the $1200 and buy a more complete lift and then install it yourself. If you are wanting to stick close to the 3" range. you could easily put it on in your garage. I put my lift on in a apartment complex with just hand tools and a coil compressor. For $1200 you could get a nice kit too . Plus, putting it on yourself will give you the knowledge to fix stuff in the future . But, to answer your oriinal question... I have heard nothing but great things about BDS.

    The teraflex 2.5 doesn't come with fox shocks that I've heard of. The bb will give you a stock ride. Plus the lift. The fox shocks are what's making the ride better. But he bought those separately most likely.

    Very easy install. If you are able to put together an entertainment center in your living room you will be able to do a 3" install.

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.
