Wouldn't the coils bind before the shocks bottom out?

No. If you have more distance between your bump stop and where it meets the axle vs the length of your shock piston your shock will fully compress before your bump stop can stop your axle from articulating causing damage to your shock.

so with the RC 2.5" lift and 2.2 shocks do you need extended bump stops running 31s??

its all going to depend on the compressed shock length...you need to find that out for front and rear. my suspicion is rears definitely will require at least 1-1.5" and the fronts may require 0-1.5"...again it depends on the compressed shock length.

in front, 13.5" compressed length shocks will fit into the stock location, without bumpstop extensions, with 31s. 14.5" requires 1" extensions, 15.5" requires 2" extensions, and so forth. In the rear 12" compressed length won't require any bumpstop extension...13.25" would require 1.25" bumpstop, 14.5" would require 2.5" bumpstop...and so forth.

If you have the Jeep in your picture, you can run them without a lift with the right back spacing, but they look sweet with a small lift.

I have a 1998 TJ with 2.5" Rancho lift and 32's... works great. Perhaps a little sluggish getting up and going in comparison to stock, but no issues at all.

Don't forget guys that the bigger the tire, the more strain on the weak D35 rear axle. I'm putting 33's on mine but am always going to have to think about how I use the throttle in fear of breaking down on the trail.

I have a 2" BDS spring/shock lift and a 1/2" Rokmen body lift (to fit their gastank skid) and I like my Wal-Mart Goodyear Authority 235/85R-16 tires that measure out to 32". Works for me.
