Rear Bump Stops... how did you extend yours?

My Jeep is back together after the 8.8 install, regear and now 35's. I've trimmed my rear fenders as much as possible, and am still rubbing on full flex. It's time to measure and drop my stops. I am thinking about welding a piece of 2x2" tubing to my frame, and bolting the factory stops to the 2x2. This will give me 2 inches of extra stop. Any other thoughts? What's worked and what hasn't?

I have a big three day wheeling trip coming up on Friday. Please send me your ideas with pics if possible.

PS... Front is fine since I flat fendered the front. Just the back has issues.

You could leave the pad alone and raise the axle bump point. Many SUA lift kits come with towers you clamp under the u-bolts. I have SOA and welded up a 'landing pad' on top of the u-bolt plate. In my case I had to do something, since the rubber would have been hitting the threaded ends of the u-bolts.

I did an 8.8 but did my own u-bolt flip during the process. I extended my bumpstops by cutting a piece of driveshaft tubing I had laying around. Cut it to length, welded a cap on it, then welded other end to top center portion of my ubolt plate. A little black paint and done.

That's not the best approach for two reasons, either 1) the tub sheet metal becomes the compression limit, resulting in bent stuff or cut tires, or 2) The shock becomes the compression limit, resulting in broken shocks or mounts.

Thanks for all of the responses. I welded a piece of square tubing to the frame and bolted my stop to the tubing. Havent flexed it yet, but I will try it tonight.
