How much extra bump stop

Finally ready to lift the Jeep and I need some advice on bump stop extensions. I didn't buy a kit, just hand-me downs and some stuff I've bought. The goal is to stuff some 33 x 10.50 BFG M/Ts with a 2" suspension and a 1.25" BL, under my ride. I've got soft 8's w/4" BS, rear trackbar bracket extension, front adjustable trackbar, some 0-3" shocks, and the coils and BL. I've already got front disco's. I'm pretty conservative off-road, but I don't want to loose a coil w/the longer shocks...and I'd like to not rub too much. Do I need extensions for the front and rear, or just the rear...and I have no idea how much extra to add..1" or 2". Thanks!
Bert

i have a 2" BL and 35s and i need 3" BS extensions in the front and 2" in the rear.
you have a 1.25" BL and 33s. IMO 2" in the front and 1" in the rear should be ok for you.

if that isn´t enough you can add some more BS on a cheap way. just glue some hockey pucks (or cutted hockey pucks) on the lower spring mount.

I'd suggest putting it all together first and then measuring it for extra bumpstops. You want your bumpstop to make contact with your spring pad about a half or quarter inch before your shock bottoms out. You aren't going to have to worry about tossing coils with the setup you are doing.

+ 1

Make sure your stop makes solid contact .50" before shock bottoms.
