* Required Fields



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.
