We have been working hard to get into the "social media" circles that everyone is growing to love. We are currently on Facebook, Myspace, You Tube and have our own Blog. Basically, in addition to our newest website design do out this summer, there are a lot of places to see what is going on with BDS.

Our Blog is the source for the best information. We currently have a short writeup on how we design IFS lifts on the blog. If you are interested in what others have to say about us visit our Facebook/Myspace pages. If you like videos check out our You Tube channel.

Check out a couple or all of them. Plus, on our website, there is the always popular pride and joy section. All of you with a BDS lift should take the time and submit your trucks.

Thanks Bill. I think you harassed me back in July of last year about this site. Took me long enough but I'm here. James talked me into it.

How did the Zone body lift work for you....Dave told me you ended up getting one.

I changed my entire thinking about the body lift when I considered the Zone that used to be yours, and went chasing the state of the art and also got 33's. It rocks, I took a bit of heat for recommending it on the OS where the 3" guy is more active. Zone is within 10% of his cost now, if they don't win, but many folks don't focus on cost alone if they need the performance. For me, 3" body lift would have killed the lines of my $1600 bumper even worse than the 2" one did, and it took me months to get the bumper mounts rebuilt to meet up with the new body height. Now it's all good and I might go to 34's on the next tire upgrade before summer. But I was falling steadily behind in the height contest with only 31-32"s. At 33's, it's all good, and I don't really need to go farther because as I tell folks - if you build up your trailvoy too much, who are you going to wheel with? Only the extreme Jeeps, and they'll STILL mock you.

Teebes and I are the only active wheelers in the San Diego area I know of with 33's and your 2" body lift, and we're HAPPY CAMPERS! There was one more military guy, but I think he only goes out with his Jeep buddies when he's not on deployment.

We had the Jeep on 7-mile rim for the Warn run. Also did the Crawl Magazine run. The rest of the week was working in the booth in the Manfacturer's area. We will be back next year. Hunt us down later in the week in the Manufacturer's area.
