Mis-leading you are. Still a 4.5" lift block? Please put your homo flag on your silver lake pole so we all know to stay the hell away from you as your death trap is flying down the freeway...

Also how is this kit "the most expensive out there" if its blocks in the rear and dosent drop the front diff?

its not the most expensive but it is a 6.5" BDS suspension lift. it was 350 bucks cheaper to have blocks in the rear instead of springs. i will upgrade from the blocks to springs in the future but im at 4400 now and don't have much more to spend on this crap. they ARE NOT 6.5" blocks in the back and the rear isnt even left 6.5" its lifted 4.5. Im sure you knew that but was confused why you thought that? my kit was around 2000 bucks minus shipping and the one with springs was like 2350. rough country was like 1100 bucks and BDS was the most talked about and "one" of the more expensive high grade lift kits that i felt was the best choice for me. PLEASE dont debate me on the lift i bought because it has been extremely annoying. If you dont like the BDS kit then keep your thoughts and comments to your self.

shit, by now you could have long armed that red xj of yours(the stick) and had it midly built up, as to this truck youve dumped half the $ on lift and tires. Would like to see some finished results. So how long do you plan on driving this before putting it up on the market?

If you dont want to be debated, badgered, disagreed with, or skimped on the $350 springs, dont post here. Go to we got mud if you dont want to hear shit about your obsurd lift blocks.

BDS makes good shit. But when you've dropped $4400 whats another $350?

i will have it till its totaled. my dad bought it new in 2001 and gave it to me 2 years ago and im not selling it. the guys at fenton offroad are having a hard time meeting deadlines. it was suppose to be back friday. then monday, then tues at 2, then today at 1030, then today at 3 and lastly today at 630 but they couldnt get it to an alignment shop in a 12 hour span. i will pick it up when everything is finshed up on it tommrorw at 2. work that takes 8-10 hours has taken 11 days? who coulda thought a 2 day done promise could last soo long.
