Default 2013 Ultimate Adventure - BDS Official Suspension Sponsor

We (BDS) once again took on a sponsorship role for the Ultimate Adventure. This year the UA is in the Southeast US. After an intense build, we sent our 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD to the event. The rig left for Alabama and a 2pm Saturday sign in deadline at midnight on Friday. It arrived in time and aside from a few trans and electrical issues, it seems to be doing well.

For anybody interested, we have build threads over on lostjeeps.com and jeepkj.com as well as on our blog and facebook page. Sorry for not posting on here earlier...I was a little preoccupied trying to get this out the door.

A couple local companies we would like to thank for helping out with this project, PAC Racing for setting us up with coils for our 14" Fox COs and AllPro Automotive in Lansing for lending a hand to our time-crunched build team by rebuilding the axles.

Sorry for all the links, but all the good stuff has already been written up...

It's nice to see a properly built KJ. Something I have always wanted to do.

Thanks guys. We knew going in that we had to do it right when starting with a less than ideal platform. We took it as a challenge and I feel like we met that challenge. As we got into it we decided to go the route of using JK Rubicon parts (axles, steering, transfer case) and use the paint scheme of the new JK 10th Anniversary Rubicon Model - Anvil paint color.
