Exclamation Canadian dealer backs out on BDS 6" coil-over

Hey guys. Been lurking for some time now, and had to up my purchase timeline so rather than getting into a new eco-diesel I picked up a '14 1500 sport pimped right out.

Before taking delivery I started researching my options for a lift, and quickly honed in on the BDS 6" coil-over kit. (671F) Well I just off the phone with my dealer sales guy, and he informs me that the mechanics have never done a 6" lift, as he put it and are freaking out because they read the instructions and see it requires cutting off some bits and a few other things that are getting their nickers in a knot. Brutal. Ignorance meet fear mongering.

Oh, and I loved this remark - "IF you DON'T buy the kit from US we can't warranty it, AND if you do buy it from us .. well, you know it's going to cost a lot."

Unbelievable


Times like this I wish I lived in California … not Canuckistan.


Anyone else get this static?


Thanks

Joe

I'd try talking to another dealership. I know there's lots out there that will lift trucks in house. Otherwise buy the truck, buy the lift yourself and take it to an offroad shop to have it installed. You'll save a lot of money by doing it that way.

Legacy Dodge up here in fort mac has done 6" lift kits before no sweat. They really cant void your warranty just for having it, it has to cause a failure. But if you buy it from a dealership and they install it and it breaks something you're completely covered with no worries.

Both entirely valid comments. In a perfect world I would purchase the lift, tires and wheels at the dealer. They would charge me 5% over cost, mount and balance the 37's and throw me a break on install labour. We'd high five upon completion, and go out for beers.

But this ain't Kansas .. and the wizard is nowhere in sight. Common sense has gone out the window, and the witch is scaring every seemingly intelligent person in the joint. So it isn't going down textbook now ..

I called up a 4x4 friend that has been a vendor for many years. He's dealt with BDS for many, many, yrs and he said it's an awesome product. He's actually never seen a BDS product come back. So there's yet another solid endorsement, interlaced with some tangible excitement in his voice during our discussion on my upcoming build.

Next he does a spectacular job of knocking the $$ down, and finally he steers me towards a shop of 4x4 guys in town who he's been offloading with for 20+ yrs.

That cleared my day right up. I'll be picking up everything from him and he'll deliver it all to the shop, and I'll just show up with a bag of cash. Done.

#$%^ the dealer on this one. Not the place you want to go when they've already shown their hand, and acknowledged they're too insecure to actually INSTALL the BDS kits they CLAIM to SELL.


Cheers,

Time for a cool one

Hey I'm in Kansas, and I can't get no deals like that either. But with the help of bully's performance I did get a great lift at a hell of a price. Then found a great local shop to install it

I hear ya. Too good to be true, for sure.

Speaking of Bully's, I was corresponding for a week or so with Andrew in regards to the lift and tires/wheels until I said I was ready and requested a cost summary on everything, and the air went dead. Rather than bug him, I'm assuming he's off to Jamaica for a few weeks, as he's always really attentive with his email. Been a great help, and I was hoping to do business there in TO. Problem is, I had to up the purchase date of the truck by 6 months and want it built ASAP, not to mention I'm a thousand miles from there (literally) right now. Honestly though if you knew the price I'm getting the BDS coil-over kit for you'd roll up into a fetal ball and cry yourself to sleep it's that insanely awww-summm.

Andrew does a lot of good on this forum and I won't hesitate to do business with him in the future.


Cheers

No worries Bro. I checked back then to make sure I sent my wish list as a 'reply' to one of your emails thinking that if not it may have got hung up in spam. It was a reply so I stepped back, knowing you were probably busy.

Bet you 'wish' you were in Jamaica though eh?

You and me both!

I never got the answer of not being able to do the lift...

However, my local dealership wanted $10k to install a 6" BDS lift, with fuel rims wrapped in 35" Toyo M/T's.

Needless to say, I only purchase from the dealership when necessary. And this wasn't one of them!
