    I don't know if anyone has the BDS lift. But if I were to go with a drop bracket I'd go with the pro comp stage 2 or the Fabtech lift that comes with the dirt logic coilovers. You won't get many people on here that are big fans of drop brackets though.

    I have that lift. I mainly went with this lift because I wanted the fox shocks for the back. It's not the best one on the market but its great for the money and it's a really smooth ride. The front does sit 1" lower than the back. Also can't go wrong with the lifetime warranty and the lifetime abuse warranty :)

    It looks like the 4 inch is similar to the RCD........The 6 inch with coilovers looks badass.....fox remotes resi too But like stated before to pay that kinda ching for a lift that isnt any more capable than a good 3 inch is not my style. If you got that kinda expendable cash I would go for it.....fox is quality.

    soooooo seeing as how it will cost my first born for the coil over kit in one shot, would i be able to get the regular 6inch installed, then later on down the road when ive recovered, be able to buy the coil overs and have them swapped in?

    My buddy has a Tundra with a 6 or 7 in BDS lift and it rides pretty good. He has FOX shocks in the rear.

    Ya. And he just got it out of the shop today. He got the front and back bumpers painted black, debadged, and the headlights and taillights tinted. It looks sick now. Oh and fogs tinted. And yes you can see his lights fine. I was driving behind him today.

    BDS 6" lift kit. Fox 2.5 coilovers front and Camburg UCA's. Fox remote res shocks rear with Dakar leaf packs. TRD cold air intake, AFE Mach force exhaust and throttle body spacer.
    You can get the coil overs later. Bds sells them separately as well as the rear. I'm running the the new bds 4" lift with icons. I did have a 3.5" set up in front before but axle angles were bad. Thinking of swapping them out for the 6" fox's with longer rear. Pretty easy once you have the kit in. The 4" and 6" kit are the same with the exception of bigger blocks in rear and extra spacer in front. I'm not using the blocks tho, just a Dakar leaf pack with add leaf. Once in the 6" set up you will have more clearance as the DB kit doesn't stick down too far and only minimal axle angle. Good kit. Fairly straightforward when the truck is jacked up in the driveway lol.
    Hopefully that helps.
