    It just softens the impact when you bottom out. They are designed more for higher speed applications. And properly adjusted they do not limit flex at all

    as long as you cycle your suspension and adjust the bumps and/or bump extensions, you should not loose any travel.

    I came to the decision that I am going to get these. What's the psi ran in them?

    I installed both the king 2.5 bumps as well as some 2.0 bumps in the rear using the Evo Brackets...Thanks Drew for taking care of me.


    The front install is easy. The directions from king are horrible.

    Basically remove the spring and measure 3" from the bottom of the stock bump mount after you remove the factory urethane bump.

    use some blue tape as a guideline going around the round tube.

    I did the passenger side first using a 4" cut off wheel and it was a pain to cut the rear portion. I have two sawzalls but I didn't have any straigh/good blades so I just made it work and it took some time.

    I bought some blades the following night and was able to do the drivers side in probably less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
    You will need to sand the inner part of the upper tube to get the blue ring to seat properly. Thread on blue billet deals and make sure you get two solid threads on the top.

    I than used a screw driver and a dead blow to tighten the bottom collar and followed that up with blue locktight on the set screws.

    reinstall the parts you removed and enjoy.

    FYI only one of my bumps came charged

    I have access to a nitrogen station so it wasn't a big deal but it could be for some people. I found that I like them at about 110 psi both front and rear

    more pics...

    Another thing I just thought of. My RK front billet bump extensions called to be drilled and tapped when installed on the lower bump pad. I did mine this way and its a pain. I have since done two more installs for friends and just had them buy longer bolts with nuts and lock washers so you can through bolt them.

    First day out at moab the stress from the kings caused my bolts to come loose. It was a easy fix after a trip to Ace for some longer bolts and a bag of washers and nuts.

    basically save time and bolt on the lower bump extensions

    You will need a little more skill for the rear...lol

    I'm not afraid of cutting and I do all the work on my jeep but when it comes to welding I leave that to friends that are actually talented...lol

    Over all I would say the bumps are pretty cool. They are deffinatley not a game changer as you are limited by the solid axles. I will say that it removes alot of the harsh teeth breaking hard hits when you come off a rock and it deffinatley stabalizes the jeep on off camber situations (this is cool). Doing the front and rear is not a cheap deal if you don't have friends and parts hook ups and I would say that most people won't take full advantage of the upgrade.

    Figure most will end up paying $1000 for front and rear bumps plus $500+ for installation.....Thats a big chunk

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
