    Debating on if the Wheelers Super bumps are a good alternative for less than half the price of the Total Chaos Fox bump stop setup. I ordered the Wheelers for the front of my truck already to replace the stocks but still debating on going with Fox in the rears. Am I really going to notice enough difference between the two to justify spending twice as much money.

    This is for my daily driver that see's occasional offroad but will push it pretty hard (for mid travel)

    Would really like to hear form people who have had both or at least ridden in trucks with both to get a fair comparison, but any good advise will be listened to.

    Long Travel Total chaos kit, fox shocks, smp fab , dmz sua, glassworks, method wheels.
    Do the2.5" hydro bumps for the rear with Total chaos makes a bolt on mount kit. Not cheap though . Mounts are about $450 bumps $375 then install.

    The superbumps don't compare to a real one. I have them and they deff don't work for the harder hits. Icon makes a bolt on too for $650 range.

    I saw the ones from total chaos. I thought it was 420 something for their mounts with bump s if its closer to 800 for the setup then it might be out of my budget for now and I may have to go with the super bump s to get me by. That's a disappointment.

    That price is just for the mounts without bumps.

    Icon makes a 2.0 rear bump stop kit that is considerably less expensive than the Total Chaos Fox/King versions.

    Looks like Icon is about 100 bucks less than the Fox setup. Part of me would like to keep everything on my truck Fox but the other side of me would like to keep the extra 100 bucks in my pocket.

    Icon- 698.20 (their website)

    Fox/ Total Chaos- 351/420.16= 771.16 (downsouthmotorsports.com, chaosfab.com)

    So do I keep the truck on pavement for a month or two until I can convince the wife that we need these or just get a set of the Wheelers Super Bumps for the rear and hit the dirt?

    Bump

    Anybody who has ran the Wheelers Super Bumps in the rear able to chime in?

    124.50 for bumps is sounding much better to me than 771.16 for the Fox's that I really wanted but if they are little to no improvement over stock then that 124.50 would be a waist.

    Im curious too.. if I keep my truck I should probably do bumps aswell... im a low speed guy with trail and rocks so I assume the wheelers or maybe the daystars would work
