    thanks for the love geoff.......we dont currently build a kit for the 4wd f-150.......only the 2wd......but if we did it would have a fully fabricated spindle to accept a 1" uniball lower control arm. it is deffinetly more expensive but much stronger than the dixon style stock spindle setup. also i have never heard anything bad about the dixon bros kit, looks like a good setup for the price.

    here is what a 4wd kit would look like from BMS. this is an 08 silverado.

    we also rocked custom TCS axles with 930 inner cv's mounted on in-house machined adapters.

    thanks for the feedback guys...your kit looks realllllly good, but im in a really tight buget. Im not planning on doing any hardcore stuff. just want a kit that i can prerun on some trails every once in a while, and go 4x4ing with the same truck

    Not wanting to take over the thread, I'm looking to upgrade my truck's suspension but have found nothing jet. My truck is a 2005 F150 FX4 (4x4). I'm looking for a LT kit.

    many of our 07-08 parts will transfer over to the 99-06 4wd chassis but we havnt had a doner truck to finalize the kit on yet. all we need is your truck and a deposite. :)

    Matt takes Coors Lite, BMS most likely wants cash or maybe a fish taco, but I doubt the taco.

    I have an 05 and am looking at the JDFAB LT Kit, looks way sick. Dixon Bros make the kit up until 03 I believe... NCD has a lift for the 04 and newer F1's also...anything new on the 4WD BMS kit?
