Quick Overview

Check out the install article done by Four Wheeler Magazine on this 6.5 inch Suspension Lift Kit.


Once again BDS beats the competition and is first to market with this comprehensive High Clearance suspension lift kit. This 6-1/2 inch lift kit utilizes high arched crossmembers that blend perfectly with the angle of the factory installed lower control arms for a completely integrated look while lifting your vehicle a full 6-1/2 inch dramatically increasing ground clearance at the front crossmembers and improving operating geometry. Torsion bars are mounted directly to the top of the lower a-arm eliminating the need to drop the torsion bar crossmember.

A front skid plate and differential skid plate come standard, to lock everything together, creating a nearly indestructible sub frame for extreme off road protection.

The rear is lifted with a flat 5 inch block for easy installation.
