Bump stops with lift and tires?

I have a 4" RC lift I'm almost ready to install however, I am fumbling around with the idea of bump stops. I keep reading how necessary they are to save my shocks, tires, and fenders. The thing is, I cut my fender flares, and will not be upgrading my tires from 31s to 33s for a couple months (unless you want to donate money to me). So with my 31s, cut fender flares, and 4" lift, are bump stops still necessary? If so, how do I determine what size bump stops I need?

Yes, i think you would still need them so you do not bottom out your shocks and the shock becomes the bump stop.

Some one else will post on how to tell how long of a stop. I have read it several times but have not personally done it. you articulate your suspension w/ springs off until the shock bottoms out and measure the distance. Search and you will find it. I read about it in several threads.
