um..BDS is a Michigan made brand and if i total the truck off a cliff they will send me every lift part that broke or is unusable and the guy at Fenton Offroad, that company that flashes in the top right corner all the time laughed his ass off when i told him i wanted the rough country kit ordered. he told me its called "rough" country for a reason and for the additional 800 i would be much happier. that doesn't mean on your jeeps that the rough country is bad but the BDS on my dd will be better and i can back that up with several reasons like the non torsion drop and more reinforcement. and yeah sorry about no pics but its torn apart and i cant get any pictures right now but Monday i promise it will be finished so i will have pics up. KEEP POSTED!

i saw someone previously told u to heat up the torsion keys to get them off and whetever you do DO NOT heat them up until red! they lose some of their spring properties this way and are prob ruined...

if u need any part let me kno i have a ton of front end parts from my old silverado... i have a front diff. cv's torsion bars, torsion bar bracket sway bar... if u want it pm me u can have it all for like $50 i also have some bds cv axel extensions that are supposed to help

also like said earlier drop the front diff as soon as you can to help with your cv angles or u could just leave it decranked for a while until u drop the diff

pm me if you have any questions

they just go between the differemtial and the cv axle i guess they figure if the cv axle is longer it will hold up better at a bad angle

the spacers will help... all it is a like 2" plate the goes in between the pig and the cv, my buddy had those on his truck and still had a problem. Just to be safe i would just drop the front dif.

There's a big difference in a lift kit for a jeep and a lift kit for a full size truck, i've never really heard anything good about rough country lifts, except that the're cheap

What's a build thread with no pics? You've got 1 pic and 4 pages of talk all about mufflers, and people telling you, you bought a junk lift. I can't wait to see these pics from a kid who's always got money to buy shit, but doesn't have a camera or a camera phone to take pics. I figures. This is a build thread made to post pics of your project or whatever your building.. haha just like everyone else I wanna see these "pictures"
