Right now and for the past year, I've running w/o front bumps stops.
So from a normal stock zj, I'm sitting at 3" of lift from my upcountry package and 2.25" coil spacers.
I bought some daystar front bumpstops, and I am wondering where should I cut them?
I have stock size tires now. Now with my rusted out rockers, I'm cutting the rockers out and installing some homebrew rock sliders to fit in their place. I have a friend, who does rat rods and custom fabrication on anything. He is going to be helping me with this project, and while I'm there, I am going to do some fender trimming. Ultimately, I am going to be getting some 285/75/16s in about sept. So I don't want to cut off to much off of these and have to buy new ones.
The red line would be about stock.
The green line is about 7/8" longer
The blue line is 1 5/8" longer then stock
If left uncut it is almost 2 1/2" longer then stock. Which If I did that I would only have about 3"(if that) of up travel. I have 8" of space from the mounting point for the bump stop cup to the spring mount.
Also should I use the stock 1/2" spacer? Purple arrow
