4" front hydro bumps

Anyone with long travel running 4" front hydro bump stops as opposed to bypass shocks? I have the total chaos +2 kit, and don't want to run secondary shocks as i don't jump much. I've scoured the Internet for a few days and it looks like most people with long travel just run secondary bypasses. Jounce shocks are a rip off, and from what a few members have said they aren't even that good.

Way too long of a bump for that application, you will be in your bump zone at ride height.

The longest you'll see people run is a 2'', some even shorten it from there.

Remember that a 4'' bump does not equal 4'' of travel at the wheel. Since it's bumping very close to the frame, a 4'' bump is going to equal more like 8'' of wheel travel in contact with the bump, which basically means at ride height you will be using your bumps (which will ride like shit)
