Home Brew Bump Stop Extensions For BB

Search did not yield any direct results. Can anyone point me in the right direction with fabricating bump stop extensions? I have a stock TJ and rounded up a pair of 2" spacers along with a pair I had leftover from an old XJ project. The extensions are cheap enough to buy, however, I plan to install the lift on Sunday and don't have time to wait a week for a vendor to ship to hickville. Has anyone found usable materials at Lowes, etc? Thank you in advance for your responses, links, etc!

completely different animal, but, to get your mind going, i welded a piece of 2" square tubing under my front bumpstops to compensate for my SOA lift on my yj. if you're not going wheeling in the week it'd take to ship, id just run without, it wont hurt anything

I used the hockey puck method by mounting them to the lower spring mounts. I drilled/taped the bottom mounts to accommodate a 3/8" bolt and then drilled holes in the center of the pucks to allow me to bolt them in place. Some people just glue them in place and they seem to hold fine that way too. I'm sure if you do a search for hockey pucks, you find more info.

I just use washers most of the time. 3/8" washers stacked as long as you need to adjust for, then just put in a longer bolt if needed...

Thanks for the input everyone. I picked up a few hockey pucks today for $1.49 each. I also have plenty of washers in the hardware drawer. I think I can make something work.
