I test drove a 2011 f250 that my local ford dealer did for a car show and it had 6" bds kit with 35" mickey Thompson atz tires. And it rode better than all of my stock suspension trucks. I was surprised and they seem to be decently priced

Your truck looks sick. I'm going with the 4inch but don't know if I want the 4 link kit. Everyone I've talked to around here has never installed the 4 link and say I really don't need it unless I'm going to do a bunch of mods to the motor and give it tons of power. They say with stock hp and torque I shouldn't need it. Not sure how accurate that is though

It looks like your rear axle is more forward, is that from the lift?

I have the BDS lift in my '08. All is well with the ride so far. I've been thinking about upgrading the shocks to smooth out the ride. Just haven't got time to do it myself or the $$$ to pay someone else.
