    Okay,

    So I've been trying to make a decision on what to do for my rear bumpstops.

    I've done lots of research, spoken with people who have different products and can't come to a conclusion.

    My truck, more of a expedition/trail rig, with the odd blast down dirty paths and such. So what I've come down too is the following...

    Timbren's - Good for extra load capacity and supposedly smoother ride. I know quite a few people are running these. Read some where that at the rebound from them is bad?! (Can'f remember where)

    LR Jounce stops - Hydraulic bump that requires no custom fitting, bolt-on design, but not sure how they handle weight, been told that the ride improvement is amazing though.

    Wheeler's Superbumps - Similar to the Timbren's, Cheapest of the 3, not sure how I like the mounting tree on them, still looking for more reviews on them.

    ANY input anyone has on the 3 listed above is appreciated, I know that the prices between them all differs quite a bit (not considering that) I would like reviews input anything at All thanks!

    The jounce shocks handle weight fine. Their primary downside is that you can't run them with a u-bolt flip.

    I have the front as well but wasn't sure on the rears so I held off on them.

    Boyd, what would you have went with instead?!

    Oh okay, yea using some sort of universal polyurethane bumpstop custom fitted, I actually think Defined engineering makes some mounts for our trucks for them. I'll look into that!

    Will do! :thumbsup:

    And yea, they're way to expensive that's why I looked in to the Wheeler's Bumps in the 1st place!

    And as Mike pointed out the LR Bumps can't be used with a U-Bolt Flip, which I don't know about, I don't know if the clearance is that big of an issue with stock style U-Bolts.

    I got the Wheelers Super Bumps in the front. Can't speak to the rear.

    Here is a video of them in action.
