Just so that it isn't missed, the point of bump stop extensions is NOT to prevent rubbing of your fenders but rather, to prevent the over compression of your coils. As in, they prevent them from getting compressed to the point where they do not return to their original height.
Understood, I thought it was to keep the tires from hitting things. Learned something new today! Thank you.

I feel like it's worth noting here that the factory bump stops do compress so that tire can still go up almost 2 more inches.
Thanks! Didn’t know that either. I stopped when the tires started slipping on the concrete. It had been raining and everything was still slick.

Looks great.

Would like to hear your opinions on Bridgeport sometime.
Bridgeport was fun, it’s a different type of terrain and rock than Hidden Falls. There’s more mud, too (which I’m not a fan of) but most of it is avoidable. It’s worth the 4 hour drive for a day of wheeling, but I doubt I’ll ever go there again, I much prefer the Falls.
I’m heading back to the Hill Country for a New Years Eve run with my local shop, then we’re going to Hot Springs in March for the owners birthday. I really want to get out to K2 and Wolf Caves, also.

We will be in Hot Springs between Christmas and New Years.

I am wanting to hit Hidden Falls sometime in January before my JT goes under the knife for the motor swap.

K2 and Wolf Caves is on the short list also.
