How many of you are running the bumpstops? I'm looking in pictures and can't see anyone with them. I am not running them right now because they look huge and hideous (also seems like it will be a pain to get something so huge to center on the flip plate) but my drag link is starting to look rubbed on. So who's put them on or done something else instead. All input is appreciated.

Right now i have the stock U bolts so i use the stock bump stops from the 81 i took the axle from when u flip my U bolts ove im just going to attach the ols bump stop the the bottom of the frame with some regular bolts and a plate on the top of the frame( so i dont drill into the frame) I mounted my shocks alittle different so it will work for me. I hope this helps

I run the stock ones that I modified a bit and welded to the plates, but I do not give a shit if something looks lame as long as it works. Must be an old man thing!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/fj.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/trooper.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/smokin.gif" border="0">

It all depends on how far your springs go into a negative arch. And whether they hit the frame, or the pitman arm, or the drag link, in your case. Some need to run them, some dont. With my 44044's, they dont run to far into a negative arch and I have plenty of room between the spring and pitman arm, so I dont. A buddy of mine put a rubber bump stop on his shock, seemed to work good.

You must run the bumpstops of some kind on the front end! Personally I like using stock rear bumpstops up front. I weld them to the perch kit then run a tube down from the frame to meet the bumpstop. We recommend 2"-3" gap between the bumpstop and whatever it's going to stop on.
