Let me tell you of the stories of my expierence with BDS and my old 2002

I had a 2002 I bought new in april 2002. The day I bought it I dropped it off at sport truck usa( same owner as BDS) it was in monroe michigan. This was the only time I never installed my own lift. I still had my 2000 and didnt feel like taking that lift off and installing a new one. Best dicission I made

They installed a 6" lift. They had to put 5 (6") lift kits because they kept sagging with in 2 months. SO they upgraded me free of charge to an 8". They later had to re-install another set of front springs about 8k later. At 25k they had to replace a rear broken spring. At 28k they had to install another set of front springs. This time I had to pay labor since labor was only covered for one year. At 30k one spring was higher than another. I then told them I didnt want to lift got to know the owner Steve( he also owns truckmaster distrubitor in ColdWater Michigan). He then agreed to take the lift off and upgrade me to a fabtech. It cost me another 1000.00 to upgrade and labor...

I since know several guys who have had tons of problems from squeky bushing to broken springs.

Here my take. Yes...it has a crazy lifetime warrenty. But if the lift you put on always has problems and your truck is always apart then how good is the stuff. I have tried almost every lifts on ford...I have own a 1997,2000,2002 and a 2004. I also have friends with dodge and tons of chevys. Sometimes you get what you pay for

Sorry....just my thoughts and expirences...take that for what its worth

I will agree with that 100%...

When it comes to the lifts we just so happen to have someone on our staff that knows his stuff. Paul has basicaly ran the largest off road shop in Beaumont for the past 3 years before changing over to DPP and he knows his stuff.

So Paul will be the man I will have OOWeaver68 talk too and he will be in good hands...

thanks robts...great info, sorry to hear all the problems...i talked to Tank, and he told me about alot of stuff with different companies, he ended up changing my mind.

You get what you pay for, so i dont think im goin with bds anymore...yes, very cheap but, i guess cheap made also, he told me about icon, and as of now that sounds the best, expensive, but ive also never heard anything bad about them, ive heard alot of people say they like their products.
