    One thing that I just realized I’ll be needing to do is bumpstops... with the RC shocks, they were internal on the shocks so I never had to mess with them.

    Nice upgrade with the gears and stuff!

    A good place to start is lift = bump extension length.

    From there, you can make adjustments to allow maximum up travel to keep the tires from rubbing the inner fenders and shocks from bottoming out.

    The Build and Adventures of Bearbait

    I’m looking at the evo bumpstops, I have a 3.5 inch lift (yields a little higher I think) should I go with a 3 inch or 4 inch bumpstop

    Edit: just found Clayton Off Road bumpstops, trim able

    I think 3” is recommended for 37s and 4” is recommended for 40s. I believe most 3” lifts come with 3” bumps

    I run 4” Evo coils, that actually give me exactly 4” of lift on my JKU. I run winch up front and end up with a slight rake but once loaded up with tools and gear for trail running, it levels out. I run 37s with trimmed flares. Not sure what size my bumps are but, it stops my tires about 3/8” from rubbing on my cut flares at full stuff and are long enough not to bottom out my shocks .
    One tip I have for measuring bumps is to pretend the rubber factory stops in the frame are not even even there. Measure form the metal perch where they insert into the frame, to the bump you are adding on the axle. Those rubber bumps will smush all the way down in certain situations. Compare that measurement to how much up travel you have left in your shocks.

    Thank you for that knowledge! I will definitely do that just ordered some bumpstops that you can trim down

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.
