That looks sweet. I'm itching to lift my Rebel. Can't wait for bonus time at work!

Did you install it, or the dealer? Third party installer?

That is a very healthy stance for the Rebel. Very nice.

I had my local shop that's worked on all my builds do it. The dealer was loving it when I went back by the other day... they had no idea you could lift and keep functioning air ride.

What was the total cost, if you don't mind me asking, including install? And where did you order the kit from?

Kit is from BDS and I trade out with my local shop, so I don't know exactly what it would cost retail. Wholesale with Fox rear shocks, it was right at $1800, so probably right at $2300-2500 maybe. I would guess a grand or so in labor.

Is this shop in TX? and if so where at?
It is. They're in Round Rock, TX (just north of Austin). Ask for JJ. Good group of guys. 512-252-7778

Any of you guys that have done the BDS upgrade interested in selling your OEM Rear Factory Shocks? I've got a non-Rebel '16 with air suspension and a nasty highway vibration that won't go away. Dealer won't do squat, I've been through 3 sets of tires in 12k miles thinking that was the problem. My hunch is that the factory shocks are garbage and want to see if the Rebel Shocks help. Thanks!

Had it on about 72 hours and LOVE everything about it. It rides fantastic and looks great. So glad I didn't have one of the horror stories I'd heard so much about.

Truck looks amazing, I was looking into the BDS 4"lift recently and read that it turns out to only really be a 2" lift cause when installed your remove any parts that give the rebel the 2" height difference than other Rams. Is there any truth to that? or are you actually getting a true 4" lift

Thanks
Chris

I'd say it's a true 4".....my buddy has a stock rebel, and I have the 4" bds lift........i'm just shy of 5" taller than his with both trucks in Normal height........the extra inch would be from the fact that I have 35" tires and he has 33".
