What size bumpstops do I need?

2012 JK 2-Door
Teraflex 1.5" Leveling Kit
33" Duratracs

Been out a few times now and in some situations I'm incurring tire rub (not disco'd). Some flat flares are on my list for a future mod, but need to save up some cash first.

In the meantime, what size bumpstops do I need?

Are you rubbing when fully stuffed or only when you turn your wheels all the way to the left or right?

You shouldnt be rubbing when fully stuffed but you will if you are still using stock rims and wider tires.Usually rubs the sway bar when in full turn.

Just ruibbing the flare at the top when the axle flexes too far. I'm fine when turning.

You should be fine with 1" but if you have any plans on going with 35s later on go with 2".

FWIW i have 2" front and 4" rear plus flat flares on 37s and its perfect.
