8" BDS 4 Link kit???

Hey guys, I'm new to the site and wanted to see if anyone has the BDS 8" Four Link kit on there 6.4 SD. I have been looking at lifts from just about every company for a long time now, and I think this is probably the best option for me and my wallet. I use the truck as a daily driver as well as off road occasionally. It comes with new leafs in the rear and I'm going to upgrade to the Fox shocks and dual stabilizers. I'm hoping to get a smoother ride than I have now b/c it rides like crap. Very Stiff! I don't tow much at all, so I'm not worried about the softer springs. In fact, I want the softer ride. I plan on running 38x13.50x20 Toyo Open Country M/Ts and XD series 809 Riot 20x10s. These wheels have a -12 offset which brings it right to 4.5" backspacing. I wanted to see if anyone is running a setup like this and how you like it and pics if you have them please. I would rather run 15.50" wide tires b/c I think they look more aggressive, but Ive had alot of people tell me not good for a DD. I just wana make sure it has that stout stance where the wheels stick out at least an inch or so. Any comments or advice...Please post. Thanks in advance.

We actually run 38x13.5's on our 6" systems for 08+ Super Duties! Keeping the vehicle and lower makes it much more functional for all around purposes! If you were going 15.5 wide then you would need an 8" system to clear for sure... Good luck with whatever you choose and your build. If you have any questions on our Pure Performance Products please give us a call!

with 4.5 BS even stock width rims and tires will stick out 1.5" further than stock. Now add the additional width of the rim and the tire and you could easily add 2-4" more. so measure what you have now and add the extra you will get with your wheel and tire combs and see if that's the look you want.

We carry Pure Performance and Icon kits, PM me if I can help.
