    So, after hours of searching the web and TW, i finally came up with a cheap and easy way to get the right height bump stop. I have an All-Pro U-Bolt Flip Kit and 1.5"-2" of lift with the Extended Bilstein Rear Shocks ( 3"-4" lift RCD Bilstein Shocks) I know running these longer shocks, you can bottom them out pretty easily with the stock bump-stops.

    I didn't want to spend alot of money on bump-stops, so i found some universal, single bolt, 5" bump-stops that can be cut to your desired length and mounted on the frame, the plate that the stock bump-stop hits.

    *** I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR SUSPENSION OR TRUCK WITH THIS MOD ***

    The Bump-Stops are Daystar part # KU09037BK

    Got mine from 4Wheel Parts cause i needed them in a hurry. Cost $27.99 for the Bump-Stops.

    First, figure the length you want your bump-stop to be so that you don't bottom out your shocks or damage your suspension. ( I left mine a little longer till i cycle my suspension off road and then trim them with a Sawzall if need be ) Then cut the bump-stop with a saw ( Sawzall, SkillSaw, ect...)

    Mark where you want it to be mounted on the top bump-stop plate. Drill a 3/8" hole in the top bump-stop plate, ( I was able to drill from the top down ), and bolt it on! It's that simple :D And quick too! Only took 10 minutes per side.

    Here are some picture's for reference.

    I would've got those stops but i needed 4 inches center to center to bolt it to the u-bolt flip plate. The stops alone are 4 1/2" long not including the mounting tabs. But thanks for the input :)

    Good Information

    A lot of people forget to adjust the bump stop clearance, when they do a lift.

    Day after i put these stops in, I hauled 15 -90lb bags of concrete in the bed and had 1" between bump stop and the flip plate and 2" before my shocks would bottom out. They worked really good. I plan on trimming them a half inch for a little more up-travel.

    You can add another .5" of height using fender washers over the stud to space it out and another .25" with the All Pro U-Bolt flip kit mounting plate for an overall height of 4.75".
