2013 2500 Mega Cab Longhorn
6" BDS Longarm Lift w/ Fox Shocks & Steering Stabilizer
No Bilsteins
No Body lift - 3/4" spacer on front to reduce rake
About 3/4" rake - rear 48-1/2" front 47-3/4
37x13.5x22R - Nitto Trail Grapplers
22x10 - 5" BS Fuel Nutz
Airbags - for towing

Overall ride and performance is great, ride is comparable to stock, bumper towed 13k over 200 miles of mountain hwys last week and other than one long 10% + grade pass I could hardly tell I had a trailer. Some minor trimming was required and a stop was also placed as part of the lift to limit the turning to prevent this width tire from rubbing the long arm kit so my turn radius was increased a small amount. I also have a very slight shudder at time from 0-10 mph. Tires are a little louder than stock going done the hwy, but very little, if you have the music up at all it's not noticeable. If I was to do it again, I would probably go with 37x12.5x20R which might eliminate the need for the steering stops.

2012 ram 2500
6" BDS standard arm lift
Holsteins- NO
body lift- NO
315/70r18 toyo MT
18x9 KMC monsters -12 offset

Absolutely love everything about the lift. Install shop told me it was best quality kit they've installed (they don't sell BDS so they had no experience with it prior). Ride is ok with shocks that came with kit, but I will upgrade them probably before winter.

i gave him your guys website and told him to contact either you or jeremiah. they cant buy direct from BDS since another shop in town has exclusive rights with them. pretty dumb way for BDS to do business in my opinion.

BDS is very picky when it comes to dealers. If anyone wants to order a BDS kit, you can get it cheaper online through TruckToyzperformance. I got it about $400 cheaper. I ordered mine 3 days ago so when I get it installed ill post the info here.
