The lowdown on BDS 6-inch Ram 3/4-ton suspension
The 6-inch lift is arguably one of the most popular lifts for truck buyers, and it seems to be the bread-and-butter of many suspension companies. It seems like every week we receive a press release from a manufacturer announcing a new 6-inch kit. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that most 6-inch kits allow fitment of the ultra-popular 35- to 37-inch-diameter tire, which is a great all-around size for street or trail.
When Matt Dinelli at Attitude Performance called and asked if we wanted to hang out while he installed BDS Suspension's new 6-inch long-arm kit on a Dodge Ram Mega Cab, we dropped what we were doing (it's too bad we were looking at a new laptop) and took off for his Arlington Heights, Illinois, facility.
The '06-'07 Dodge Ram Mega Cab and the '03-'07 Ram 2500 are basically the same vehicle underneath, so what you're about to read pertains to both vehicles. Read on to get an inside look at what's included in the BDS kit and how it works.
