    Sweet up travel!

    I was taking a look at my suspension the other day and noticed all the travel I have! I might have more than Eddie! (Sarcasm) awesome teraflex bumpstops on top of stock ones it looks like. IMG_4297.jpgIMG_4298.jpg

    I like to see what your insides look like, you know as in xrays, cat-scans, MRIs and such.

    Did it come with a lift when you bought it?

    Actually, I just looked at our stock height JK, that looks pretty normal. It's about 3 inches from the spring perch to the bottom of the bump stop cup. And if measuring to the bottom of the rubber (which is not accurate travel), it's about 1.25 inches. I think you'll be fine.

    This is correct ^^^^

    You have a LOT more up travel than I think you've been thinking you have.

    Gotcha because the bump stop will be pushed into the can at full compression, giving it a couple extra inches correct?

    Yes, the jounce stop will compress and give you a bit more up travel. That being said, how much of a lift are you supposed to have on your Jeep? I don't see any bump stop extensions.

    It will flatten out or compress. Sometimes even growing larger but sideways. I tried to find a pic, but don't have any right now. Here's one from online that someone put in a vise.

    I honestly have no clue as to high much lift I actually have. The lift was on the jeep when I bought it (used). I was told it was maybe a 3-3.5 inch. It's a teraflex spring and some other teraflex stuff on it.

About us
“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.
