I can drive mine on the road but dont like to much. I dint build it for the road, thats what my CJ is for.
Hydraulic bump stops arent going to do anything different than a normal poly bump stop for your application. If you dont have enough room for 40"s with over 7" of lift, youre doing something totally wrong.

Why do you need more? Cool factor? "Flex" isnt the end goal

hate to break it to you, but for 40's, thats not very good flex. in fact, I can think of a few rigs on 35s that flex better...even 33s.

I'll bet that's got something to do with the 4" suspension lift and 3" body lift instead of proper suspension components, at least for the desired effect.

The lift is all custom other than the shocks. Way stonger and better than anything you buy at the store. The main thing that limits me is the shocks. The guy that builds the supension said main thing limiting it. My buddys CJ 7 flexs way more with same size of tires and this makes a big difference in competion and on the trail. he goes way more places than anyone else because tires on the gound where they should be. We are both running 38.5" tires not 40"s. So we are going to do some measuring of travel and upgrade my shocks. Probally buy them in Moab, because your prices way cheaper than ours.
