    Maybe? They are probably a slightly different length or something.

    I mean, If someone is putting 35s on, I don't see why thunder bump stops wouldn't work

    Edit: Tundra* but.... Thunderstops sounds effing cool

    Seems like there’s good framework for a removable canvas cover.

    edit: apparently you already thought of that great idea lol

    If the shoe fits, wear it!
    I ordered them last night. :D I have to get a closer look at these bumps...
    If they look like they won't work I'll send them back.

    Have you done front bump stops? I don't notice the front banging except at full extension coming off things. Might need straps for mine rather than bumps...

    I don't notice any bottoming out, per say.
    My thoughts on a progressive bump like that icon or a sumo, that will or almost touch the lca, is to help slow the impact and decrease any roll brought on by removing swaybar.
    More cushion for the pushin' ;)
    Never heard of straps.

    My CB antennae is still wired back to the tailgate. Can I use the same antenna or would I have to buy something new?

    I like mowing grass.
    Gotta keep that lawn golf course quality. :)
    Thought I barely made the last winterizer before Thanksgiving and the weather has been good since.

    limit straps limit the travel so you don’t slam the shock at full droop

    Possibly. Cabling is usually fairly standard / interchangeable. Connectors on end are probably different though

    Without seeing what you have, the antenna end of your cable is most likely a PL-259 connector. Most GMRS antennas use a NMO mount. So you'd need a PL-259 to NMO adapter. Also if you plan on still using the tailgate mount for the antenna it'd be wise to get a GRMS antenna that doesn't need a ground plane since there isn't much metal under the antenna in that location.
