BDS Lift Kit...yay or nay?

Hey guys,

I am looking into a lift for my new JK. Long story short, shipping a new kit over is going to be around $300 PLUS a major headache.

There is a local shop that has a 3" BDS kit in stock and ready to install. I don't know anything about BDS and I'm just looking for some input as to whether I should just get that one or ship something better over.

Here is what they have. Sorry for the bad quality, I just snapped the pic while the guy was talking.

Any and all advice would be much appreciated!

Had a BDS spacer kit on my WK. No complaints. They have a 100% warranty on their products that if something breaks they'll replace the part.

Does this kit relocate the wheels back to where they are supposed to be from the factory? Proper alignment front to back is just as important as side to side

Ummm...I'm not quite sure to be honest. I'll have to ask the shop

Watch this video. You can ignore the brand hype, but it does have some good info. What you're gonna want to pay attention to is about 5 minutes on

BDS kits allow for add ons like adjustable trac bars and adjustable lower control arms so you can correct the wheel position. Just make sure you add on what you need.
