Coldwater, MI — BDS suspension continues to lead the industry with new and innovative products for late model RAM trucks. In addition to their existing lift and leveling kit options, BDS is excited to announce the release of a 4″ 4-link conversion kit to dramatically improve the ride quality and performance of late model 2013+ RAM 3500 4WD trucks equipped with factory front radius arms and rear leaf springs.
As with the widely popular BDS 4-link conversion for ’05-14 Ford Super Duty trucks, this kit converts the factory radius arm suspension to a true 4-link for increased stability, wheel travel, and improved handling across all terrains. The 4-link design limits caster change to less than 1-degree of change throughout wheel travel for better handling, steering control, and overall driveability. The heart of the system are a pair of massive frame-mounted brackets precision welded and engineered to locate the new upper and lower control arms to create the optimal suspension geometry for late model RAM trucks. The 4-link brackets are fabricated from 1/4″ thick steel and wrap around the frame as well as the factory radius arm brackets to create an extremely sturdy mount for the new arms. Removal of the factory radius arm brackets is not required allow the brackets to stay intact to speed up the installation time.

One of the most notable upgrades is a concept Mopar roof rack dubbed the “surf rack,” which featured two adjustable support rails that are fitted inside the truck bed to accommodate longer surfboards or stand-up paddleboards. The side hooks on the rack also offer storage space for up to four other surfboards.
If you love anything automotive, SEMA is a wonderland. The problem is that the general public can’t just buy tickets and stroll in.

The good news is that the media is allowed in, so we can show the general public all the cools things they wouldn’t otherwise see at the show.
From concept vehicles to new product unveils, celebrity appearances and booth girls, there’s eye candy in every direction at the Las Vegas Convention Center this week.

Coldwater, MI — 2013 marks the the beginning of a redesigned front suspension on the Ram 3500 4WD trucks. After a 10 year run of 4-link front suspensions on the 3/4-ton and 1-ton trucks, the 2013 1-ton models have converted to an all new radius arm front suspension. With this redesign there are a number of challenges that face aftermarket manufacturers developing new products.
BDS Suspension released a 2″ leveling kit to fit the new 2013 Ram 3500 4wd designed to eliminate the front end rake and allow for larger tires to be installed.
