    I just did a five-mile Loop. Talk about an amazing upgrade.

    You are talking me into doing what you just done, I have Rancho 1" lift springs in my Tux, and I though all Jeeps rode like mine, but now I am thinking I need DBS Springs too. Thanks for helping me spend more $$$$, Lol.

    I've had my bds springs on for maybe 14 years now? Still rides good. That and tires around 20 psi gives it a good ride

    my jeep used to be nicknamed spinebuster. it rode like a lumber wagon, it was uncomfortable and honestly awful. but it's a jeep thing.

    now i dont flinch when I see a groove in the pavement. I can have a can of soda and it doesn't shake and pour all over me until its empty.

    taking it back up north this weekend for trail riding. can offer more feedback later.

    but to anyone thinking about it, it may cost more than a Rancho lift, but it's worth it. maybe in a year my opinion will change, but now I want a bds set to replace the 1 year old saggy Rancho kit on the 62.
