    Depends if you think you will bottom your shock out. You can reuse the old bumpstops but you need to do a wee bit of modification. I would just go ahead and buy them, it's not worth the headache to me. Plenty of people run without bumpstops though..

    You only need them if you plan on flexing the crap out of your rear axle.

    They (Timbren) will get used eveytime your weight, towing or bed load bottoms you out, and depending on your trucks use, that could be often enough.

    They are an excellent upgrade for any towing or expedition trips. Check out the towing forum to learn more.

    An option are these from Wheeler.
