    I'm running them, but honestly I dont fell like I've hit em. I need to crawl under there and see if there are any bump marks. Put those 35s to work this weekend too.

    I was about to click "buy" until the wife made me feel guilty for buying stuff for my truck all the time :(

    I did just give her 700 bucks so she could pay off a loan. I think I will be getting these very soon :D

    Armour: All-Pro Skid plates - IFS, transmission, and transfer case. Front Suspension: Revtek 3" lift replaced with -> OME 885 + NitroCharger 9000 shocks + 1/2" spacers for a 3" lift. Superbumps replacing stock bumpstops. Camburg ball joint UCA SS braid brake lines Rear Suspension: Revtek blocks replaced with -> All-Pro Expedition rear leafs, Walker Evans 27" rear shocks, extended rear brake lines (Wheelers Offroad), U -bolt flip kit, rear Timbren bumpstops. Interior: Weatherteck floor liners - front, Wet Okoles- front, ScanGauge, LED interior & map lights. Power moonroof. Exterior: Raider Cobra canopy, PIAA bulbs, LED bulbs all around, modified flasher unit for LEDs Rear diff breather mod. Front diff vibe problem, driver's side needle bearing replaced with ECGS bushing. yet to install: HID Blazer Fog Retrofit, LED Flood & Spot, + switches, fuse panel. Metal Tech Sliders w/ kickout and dimple die filler plates. swaybar relocate blocks (build my own)
    just installed Wheelers Superbumps on the front. For the install the supplied allen key was too long to get it to fit between the lower arm and into the bumpstop to tighten the bolt. I cut the Allen key shorter to fit. Also used locktite on the threads to secure the bolt from loosening under vibration.

    Tested the bump stops after at a neighbourhood large pothole at 40km/hr. YES, much better. A hit on the stock bump stops is a sudden jarring, that makes you think you hit metal on metal. With the new Superbumps, there is no jarring at all, makes you think you didn't even bottom out.

    Much more controlled with the Super bumps, and for such little investment. Gives me peace of mind if I miss seeing a sinkhole in time like what happened to me before. That hit on stock bumps makes you think something was bound to break!
