I saw that on their website a while ago. I've noticed on these forums a lot of people seem to think BDS is the best lift kit. Looks like they have a good warranty on their equipment as well. I'd be interested in buying this but seems like it would get to be quite expensive after buying the kit, tires, and getting it installed and aligned.
Also I'd be worried about the warranty on my truck too. The safer option I think is to wait for a kit from Mopar. That way if anything fails there would only be Chrysler branded products on the truck.

That's true. I am more worried about my powertrain warranty though. Obviously BDS has a great warranty on their lift products. I would love to just swipe the credit card and get me this lift kit.
If you ran this 6" BDS kit, would 35" tires be too small? That's as big of a tire as I want to go so maybe a 4" kit (whenever one of those comes out for the 12s) would be better?

If you do the 6" with the 3" rear option and 35s...it'll look good Titan. BDS is a real good lift. The 4th gen drop bracket lfts are almost all the same wth just a few variations from company to company. FYI BDS 6" lift has the least amount of ground clearance for the 4th gen Rams....

Not sure where yall guys have been, but this has been out for a little while. Also Superlift relseased their 2012 4" and 6" lifts back in November....

Arghh....:LOL: How did I not notice this? I have been on superlift website plenty of times and it kept taking me to their leveling kit, but I never saw the lift kit options on the left side. So since there is a kit from Superlift, does this mean there is a kit from Mopar?

Looks like the complete list to do this right is lift, tires, and gears. I need my truck to be a dependable daily driver so I definitely don't want to fry my transmission running 3.55 gears with 35s....ugh I need more funds!

^Hahahahaha

I hope you don't plan on doif gears anytime soon unless you're going oem 4.10 & Lsd rear and aftermarket 4.10 up front. As for the 35s on 3.55s, you'll be fine. Correct me if I'm wrong but at least 75% of the lifted trucks on here and dt have 3.55s, including myself. I have almost 20k on stock 3.55 lsd and 37" Swampers. Its far from a Pavement Princess as well. I don't have any issues....yet. I know its alot harder on the truck but it is holding up GREAT. The power is still good as well.

Not sure why the googly eyes for mopar lifts. Mopar lifts have no added benifit or security over any aftermarket kit. Just fyi....

20k miles is far from the 100 or 200k miles I would eventually like to have my truck for. But then again, I have read many people saying to do gears with bigger tires but I have never actually read of anyone having issues with 3.55 gears. So then I guess lift and tires go to the top of my list. Gears will have to wait.
I guess Mopar would only warranty their lift system for 12 mo. probably...even though it is a Superlift system that has a lifetime warranty. Well then 6" vs. 4" lol too many options
