Extended Bumpstops

I have an '03 sahara 4.0 5 speed with a 2 inch BB. I ordered a 1 inch BL and MML and am going sunday to get a set of 33's to run on my stock canyons with 1.25 inch spacers to clear for steering. I was wondering what length extended bompstops I needed to get and if it would be something I would need to buy or something I could easily make?? It seems that all I would have to have is a piece of round bar the right length with a hole the size of the bolt throught it. Is there more to it than that or is that about the jist of it? Thanks

2" or so. I'm running 3" in the front with 35s. You might be able to get away with 0 to 1" in the rear. You can always use hockey pucks for bumpstops. Cheap, effective, and easy to install.

brings up a good question cause i have been wondering about this..hockey pucks can only be used for the front right? because there is a little hump on the bottom spring pad in the rear.

I've never used them in the rear. I always put the extension in the frame side.

Height does not affect how much bumpstop you need. With a 2" body lift you can probably ditch the rear bumpstops depending on what shocks you have. If you have the N67 rear OME shocks then you can ditch the rears. But to be sure you should compress the shock the whole way and make a mark at the bottom of the can. Always triple check your bumpstops and stay on the conservative side.

What do you mean a hockey puck for an extension? A spacer like used to lift it, or what? And also where could I get a set for a good deal?? Thanks

I put the hockey puck on the axle. You can either drill and bolt them or just glue them on You don't even have to pull the coils to install them. They should fit

yeah a lot of people just glue them to the bottom spring pad using a gorilla glue or some kind of thick glue from home depot or something
