BDS 4 link

Does anyone have this kit installed and if so post some pictures up. I'm thinking about purchasing the 8" some time after deployment with 38X13.50R20 toyo open country MT wheel choice is still up in the air. Just wondering what all your thoughts are on the setup.

I know one guy on here has a BDS kit. The truck is in a parking lot white truck and I believe has an 8" lift with 38's as well. Just cant seem to find the threads that he posted in.

BDS is a good quality lift, have you taught about RIZE they are not too far off price wise from each other.

I have the 8" Rize on my 08 F350 - I will not recommend this lift, if you use your truck for actuall work, rough gravel roads & mud it destroys the heim jnts resulting in a rattle trap truck.

I have looked at the rize kit and really just dont like the looks of their design. The BDS kit I like because they warrant their work for as long as you own the truck which give me a great piece of mind.

I have an 8 inch BDS with 37" Toyo M/T's. I havent had one problem with it 4 wheeling or so I dont kow what the rattling problem is, but I havent had it. I would definitely recomend it. Here are a few pics.

I love the look of those lifts. I'm now debating if I should just pay the truck off next Feb or get the lift. I want the lift bad but I also dont want any more payments damn this stupid modding bug
