BDS Suspension has several new kits in the development for the 2018-2020 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited JL.
The latest kit to hit the shelves ready for sale are new 3" lift systems, specially designed for improved on-road ride quality and handling while taking offroad capability to the next level with clearance for up to 37" tires. Designed to not only lift, but enhance the new Wrangler JL's all around performance, these new 3" systems come complete and ready to perform right out of the box. At each corner replacement 2Dr or 4Dr JL-specific ProRide coil springs are supplied to mimic the factory ride and spring rate. These springs provide additional ride height, along with allowing for increased suspension travel. They are paired to your choice of specially tuned NX2-series gas or FOX 2.0 performance series IFP gas shocks to offer a smooth ride and better damping in rough terrain. Along with the new coil springs and gas shocks, these 3" kits include front and rear bump stop extensions to properly limit suspension up travel. A heavy duty, pinch-bolt style adjustable front track bar is utilized to recenter the front axle and eliminate any unwarrented side-to-side movement. Front caster correct is provided by a set of lower cam lock washers. JKS quicker disconnects are supplied with the kit to unlock the front suspension's potential to flex while maintaining quiet on road operation with a heavy duty adjustable design and spherical bushings. Along with the sway bar disconnects bolt-on mounting posts are supplied for each side to easily store the sway bar up out of the way when hitting the trail. In the rear extended length sway bar links are supplied to keep the sway bar at the optimal operating angle and allow more droop travel when paired with matching rear NX2-series or FOX 2.0 performance series shocks. Finishing out the rear of this kit is a 2-piece rear track bar bracket to recenter the rear axle under your new Wrangler JL while improving the operating angle for improved roll center geometry.
As with all BDS Suspension products these are backed by Factory Protection Plus offering safety and security with a limited lifetime warranty and ESC system compatibility along with 5-year, 100,000-mile extended drivetrain warranty. Go with confidence and get more out of your new late model Jeep Wrangler JL with BDS Suspension.

No Fine Print Warranty
BDS stands behind its products and that’s evident by their No Fine Print Warranty. This no-BS warranty protects the original purchaser against breakage, bending, sagging, or any other usage failure. This “no fine print” lifetime replacement warranty extends to cover all BDS hard parts as well as bushings. Exclusions would be product finish and wearable items such as shock/stabilizer cylinders, tie rod ends and ball joints that would fall under the separate Limited Lifetime Warranty policy. Beginning February 1, 2020 all new kit purchases include the No Fine Print Warranty on bushings.
Limited Lifetime Warranty (for wearable items)
Wearable items include shock/steering stabilizer cylinders, ball joints and tie rod ends. BDS Suspension Co. warrants to the original retail purchaser that its these wearable parts are free from defects in material and workmanship for so long as they own the vehicle. Excluded from this warranty are the finish of the product. Defects in material and workmanship do not include such things as dented cylinders or bent rods caused by obvious side impact, rust or corrosion. A shock absorber is a wear item and over time will experience diminished damping resistance due to normal component wear. This is not a defect in material or workmanship and is therefore not warrantable.
