My F150 with 8" BDS lift

Here is my F150 finished. It has a 8" BDS lift with dual BDS steering stabilizers and 37" Nitto mud grapplers with 17" Moto Metal 951. I just got it home Monday and have not been able to test it. I am still waiting on my 4:88 gears to come in and put on. Hope you enjoy

I got the lift for $2100.00 and install was $450.00. It took about four days to get it back.

Yes but the blocks and aal, not the new springs. Wish a could have got the springs but alot more money. I am happy with the ride, very smooth.

First off, Long time reader of the site but I dont post very often as you can tell by my post count lol.

I am very interested in the same lift that you have. I have been looking at it for a while but I dont have the money for it quite yet. The price that you gave was it for the strut spacers or for the lift that had the longer strut?

Also what are the benefits of using the struts over the spacers? Is it worth the extra money?

Thank You,
Kevin

kscull the kit I have came with the longer struts. I think all the 8" BDS kits come with the longer struts. The only thing that changes on their 8" kit is the rear set up, blocks and aal or new springs.

Yea i actually just noticed that. I went to their site and saw that the 8 inch kits only come with struts. Guess i should have done more looking before asking

What backspacing did you get with those rims? and do you know what the recommended backspacing is for the BDS kit?
