I ordered front and rear with towers and 6, 3/8 spacers. My last offroading trip last weekend I nearly ripped my fender flare off from up travel. Will the towers themselves reduce up travel or will I still need to use the spacers I ordered in case as well?

You are going to need to measure bump travel numbers and adjust your bump stops accordingly. Every setup is going to be a little different. I have some 1/4" spacers in the front and it helps a little with the harsh impacts on the fenders from the up travel.

Definitely. My rears are where the problem lies. These towers physically place the bumps a lot higher than the factory ones. I'm not sure if these are intended to decrease up travel or what? What's the reason for the towers?

Thanks!

Thanks!

When you see them fully compressed, it's about the same as the rock hard stock bumpstops. They hold the weight of the truck, with the opposite wheel off of the ground, at about half compressed. But when you make a hard landing they compress even more.

Yup.

Fivespeed, look at how much they compress on the front. The rears behave similarly. Compared to the OEM bump stops, SuperBumps can really take the edge off of full compression.

Just ordered some for the front, stoked to get them installed and see what a difference they make. Might end up getting the rears when I change my leafs out at the end of the year.

Just ordered superbumps for the fronts... along with a pair of 1/4" spacers for the bumps.

Can't wait to try them out!

That's funny. I just ordered a pair for the front and a set of 3/8" spacers for my Timbren SES bumpstops on the rear. I installed the front tonight. One thing that helped me with the front install.... I cut an inch off of the allen key provided so I could get it on the bolt without the LCA being in the way. I didn't have any combination of allen key, sockets, extensions etc that would get the job done otherwise. I got them to keep the truck a little more stable with the slide-in camper on. A $2000 suspension upgrade is not in the cards right now.

On the front, the bumpstop sits only about 1/4" from the LCA on the inside. Make sense? Stock TRD Sport suspension.

Tomorrow I will be pulling the Timbrens off the rear to add the 3/8 spacers so it will sit just a little bit higher when the camper's on.

@ Wheelers...I suggest you start including allen keys that are 1 inch shorter. Makes for super easy install.

Edit.. looking back I see this has been suggested a few times.

Just installed mine.

Up front with icon extended travel 2.5s (waiting on upper arms)


Out back with OME Dakars and allpro u bolt flip kit (waiting on custom rear icons).


I "tested" the front end a bit before installing the rear, and I was amazed how smooth it is. At about 30mph the front smoothly and quietly soaked up quite the dip and bump like it was nothing, the stock rear bottomed out HARD. Can't wait to get the rest of my parts, align the truck and install the new tires!

Question, I got the AllPpro hd leaf pack, running 5100's with the top shock extender bolt (1.5") for the lift of these leafs, Should I consider adding the spacers to my order of Superbumps? If so thoughts of size?

Already placed and order for front and rears

Measure how much shock shaft is visable then measure your bumpstops. If your bumpstops are shorter than your remaining shock uptravel, you need some spacers. It is said the superbumps compress to stock height, so you can use your stock bumpstops for measuring.

Also, just ordered my Superbumps front and rear last night!!

BRJW, what U-bolt flip kit are you running that you have the bumps mounted to? did you customize them?
