    I have been looking at getting some bump stops for my rig. Its a DCLB 4x4 with Icon C/O's in the front and Icon rear resi's in the back with Dakars.

    Im not sure if I need the bump stops but I want to be as safe as possible with my stuff.

    If I do need them I am going with the wheelers super bumps.

    Let me know what you guys think?

    Truck looks great. Have you taken that beast offroad yet? I have the same setup as you in the front. My coilovers are only cranked up to 2" of lift and I keep smashing my front fenders while wheelin. For me the purpose of superbumps (when I get them) is to limit the amount of fender smashing...gonna wait until I get an alignment before the new bumps because I'm gonna crank up the coilovers to 3" in front for more fender clearance.

    off topic, but is that a 30" light bar in the lower grill area? Looks awesome.

    Thank you!

    Thanks....unfortunantly I haven't had the chance. Its still in the new phases so I didnt want to risk it. But in the near future yes it will be going with me where I choose. The closest place around me is probably 2 hours so it kind of hard for me.

    with the superbumps you can get spacers too depending on your application. you may or may not need them depending on wheel backspacing etc.

    I have a similar setup on my truck except with Foxes. In the rear I have an extended bumpstop. Probably about half an inch longer than stock to keep my shock from fully compressing. Not sure where they came from I swapped my old leaf pack with a buddy who already had the Dakars and was going back to stock. We swapped bumpstops while we were at it.

    I ran the stock bumpstops on the front for a couple of wheeling trips. Got tired of the harsh thunk on the bumps when I hit the stops so I switched them for some superbumps. Much better! I recommend them for the front. I am sure they would be nice in the rear and might get some someday.
