No. I got them front and rear. 4 wheels parts has this for the front and then a 2" one for rear as well. Is the what the proper bump stops would be?

yes, there is.

in front, you can bolt 1" on the upper end, since you won't have to worry about the bumpstop cup rubbing the spring since the BB spacers push the springs down. in the rear, you need bumpstop extensions which go on the frame and push the cup down below the spacer.

like this Teraflex kit: Teraflex 001341200 - TeraFlex 2" Budget Boost Lift Kit without Shocks for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

don't forget you'll need new shocks.
