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.
