I don't understand why so many of you paid for trail bosses and AT4 trucks only to remove and stick 6 inch lift on em or even add to stock lift...…..why not just buy a standard 4x4 in any trim and than do a lift?......would save a lot of money I would think

 

those models were easily 10k plus more than my RST...…so what am I missing?

The prestige and a sticker? Personally my RST is nicer than most trail boss trucks I see. Those black bumpers are atrocious.

I can run a 4in lift, UCA,s with KING 2.5 coilovers and rears for way less than TB LT, which is what I would basically have...….and with much better suspension....I had fabtech lift b4 and suspension was shit, was along time ago though 

 

idk, just thought I was missing something

 

would rather get LTZ 6.2l and do the KING setup....

I just had a 3” Fabtech lift installed on my ‘19 High Country. Stock 20’s with Michelin Defender 295/65-R20’s (35”). These are a little narrower tire and gives the truck a unique tall, somewhat skinny look. I started with that look in 1977 with an F-150 and 9:00x16 Non-Directional Military tires. I’ve run Michelin’s for many years, last set on an F-150 went 89,000 miles and still had a little left. Love this truck.

I couldn’t agree more with you I’m a fan of the stock look. Reason being they just look out of form/shape when you lift them. Granted the right lift tire setup would def make a diff. Now it just seems like a contest higher then the next guy and the whole trend with tires hanging 67 feet out of the wheel wells is just nonsense.

I want to get the RC Vertex coil overs but I am on a 6in BDS lift. Would anyone know why they would not fit or align correctly?

The RC 6in kit with the Vertex coil overs does not show new UCAs just knuckls.

Did they release them for these trucks yet? I’ve only found them for the legacy body style. Try chatting with them during business hours, they’re usually easy to reach for tech support. I also have the BDS 6” and I’ve been waiting for a compatible coilover that I don’t have to custom order.

They released them with the 6in RC kit for 19s. It has them as an option to add.

RC coilovers on a BDS kit?.....blasphemy!  😂

 

Contact BDS/Sport Truck USA and get the matching Fox coilovers and Fox 2.0 rears to go with your kit.

      Hey guys!
      I have a 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD WT 4X4. I am looking at installing a 3.5" rough country suspension lift on my truck and I have read mixed reviews. If anyone with a similar truck preferably an HD that is running this specific lift or knows someone who is could just tell me whether or not its worth the 600$ and if its something I should pursue.

      I just ordered a Rough Country leveling kit for my 2019 Silverado. I know I can install it myself but will I need an alignment? Has anyone actually installed one of these on a 2019? Did it throw the alignment off? Was just curious if I should spend the money getting an alignment or not. Thanks in advanced. I have a newer body style 2019 if it makes a difference.

      Im currently thinking on which lift i wanna get im definitely going with a bds 4 inch lift kit On my 2018 1500 . But whats the difference in ride quality between the normal one Which includes a whole new strut between the more expensive one which has fox coilovers and shocks?? and have any of yall ran either one and how did it feel?? Also can i fit 22x12s in a 4 inch ???

      Hey folks, brand new to this forum so forgive me as I am sure I'm asking something that has been asked before.  I am on my third Silverado, and for the first time I'm getting in to mods. I'm stuck on lifts right now. I really want a BDS 4 or 6 inch coilover kit, but I'm hesitant about the price, and not sure if keeping my 18x9's with 33's on the six inch kit will make my truck look like it skipped leg day. Meanwhile in searching for alternatives I'm noticing that, unless you intend to get a waiver from the FAA for occupying dedicated airspace, you don't get many of the same options on other kits from rancho, superlift, procomp, trail master etc. as you would from BDS... can anyone provide some feedback or guidance on a good direction to go? I know BDS it top of the line, and ride height and ride quality are extremely important to me. Truck rides like a dream now, I'm willing to sacrifice a little,  but I don't want to eff up my truck with a cheap lift. Any help is greatly appreciated. 
       
      Thank you

      So I was wondering what is the best quality lift for the money under $2000 for my 2018 silverado since i plan on buying it at the end of my lease and i always plan way tooooo far in advance for things like this. So here is my idea. I have dropstar 655bm 20X10 -25 offset on 33x12.5 toyo RTs on my truck leveled 2 inches at the moment but as soon as i fully purchase the truck i want to fit 37s. Although the 8 inch BDS and SuperLift say they can fit only 35s ive seen plenty of guys running 14 wide -72 offset on 35x15.5 tires on a 8 inch lift and fit so why cant i get a 37x12.5 on my 10 wide. So what lift would you guys go with in my situation. Im mainly looking at the mcgaughys 7-9, BDS 8inch, Superlift 8 inch. What one do yall think is gonna be my best bet. Thank You.
