Your rear would have to be compressed a lot for the bump stops to come into play. Nor do I believe you would traveling fast enough to melt a flare with rear compressed enough to have the bump stops come in to play... unless of course you are trying to climb a obstacle and are using the skinny pedal.
As others have noted...I don't think ig it your bumpstops (although I wouldn't be surprised if they needed replacing also)... but rather weak/flat springs. Most XJs with stock leafs have such issues.
Flat springs with increased tire size means the rubbing and melting flare. Perhaps your shocks were rated for a higher weight... which may have give just enough help to your spring to prevent the now rubbing.
