Hello all, I've  been trying to fight the urge to lift my new truck and just level it instead.  But.. I would like to know if anyone has installed the BDS 4" lift on theirs and what are their thoughts on ride, looks, etc...  I hear BDS' ride quality is very nice so that is why I am leaning that way versus Rough Country...

 

Thanks in advance.

If you do install a lift, BDS is far superior to RC...

I recently installed the BDS 4" lift on my Sierra, it's awesome. The ride feels better than stock. A few years back my son had the 3" Rough Country lift installed on his 2013 Silverado, I wouldn't install that piece of junk on my granddaughters tricycle! Constantly having alignment issues and ball joint problems. Go with the BDS, you won't be sorry.

Been running a 4" BDS w/ Fox coilovers for over 3 years now. Fantastic quality and great ride. Love the stance and the fact that 35's don't rub with the factory offset. Just really really happy with the company as a whole and the stuff they make. I leveled my truck when it was new at first, ended up lifting it. Just lift it lol. You won't regret it, unless you go rough country.

RCX has significantly increased their QC over the past few years. I had zero issues with their newer kit on my 2010. Buddy had zero issues on his 16. They’re even better built for the 19s. I’ve also had a superlift on my 2010 and loved it, but they don’t have one for the 19s yet. BDS is always a solid option but don’t discount the RCX as being a cheap kit when they’ve definitely gotten just as good as the competition lately.

I had a 4” BDS on my 2014 Sierra 1500 about a month ago. I love it. At same time installed 275/65R20s on my stock rims. No rubbing at all. Added rear spacers to even track. 82ff0f23363855028b613712a89c91f4.jpga66d0f810dff16d482eb595b6efaedb1.jpg

I had a 4" BDS lift installed on my Trail Boss today and the ride is exactly like stock.

 

My lift is 6" total:

2" Trail Boss Lift + 4" BDS = 6" lift

20x10 -18 Fuel Mavericks with 35x12.5 Ridge Grapplers

sweet looking truck! I just got a 2019 High Country Silverado and I am between the 2" factory and the 4" BDS. Wondering what the total heigh with your setup is since I need to fit mine into a 7 foot parking garage. Thanks!

Thanks! Not sure exact height but I fit in all parking garages. Sometimes the antenna gets whacked but I've never not fit into any garage. I'll try and measure when I get a chance but you should be ok
