ZJ Extended rear bump stops??



I have 4.5 inches of lift on my zj i want some extended rear bumpstops!

Does anyone know where to find them? i have 2inch extentions with te stock ones but that isn't good enough to keep my back tires out of the fenderwells!

any info would be great

What you can do is buy the RE 2" bump stop extensions (they are essentially pucks that go inside the coil on the lower perch) then fix some normal front bumpstops to the rear spring post.

The puck style bumpstops are for the front. RE also has extented rear bumpstops that is basically a bracket that lowers the whole thing. Daystar also has poly extented rear bumpstops.

I know that, but the bracket is only 1.5" so he could put a front stock bump stop along with the puck to get around 4" of bump stop and remove the stock rear bump stop.

Dude, just copy the RE drop but instead of 2" use 3" or 4" tubing. We are talking a couple dollars worth of steel and 4 bolts. You will spend at least ten times that to buy something else that you will probably still need to adapt in order to make work.

So reviving an old thread here, but I need to extend my rear bumpstops 2 inches, I've thought about two ways to do it.
The way i want to do it is by a square steel tube that is 2 inches wide, cut to size and just use as a spacer between the old stop and the unibody. My only problem is I can't find anyone around here who sells 2 inch square tubing. So my options are:

1. buy the 1 inch tubing they have at Lowes and Home Depot and use two peices of metal with longer bolts.

2. Use the spare hickory that we have (VERY tough wood) and cut it to size, bedline it (so it won't deteriorate), and use it as a spacer.

3. Cough up $30 and buy RE extended rears.

Keep in mind I'm in highschool working and my budget is low, plus i have many other repairs i need to do.

Stop by a weld shop and see if they have some laying around, or go to a place that sells metal. Itís really not that hard to find!

And yes, I did have to turn that bolt around.


Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

I have about a million feet of 2" square tubing in my shop. Steel of course. If its a small enough amount and you cover some shipping, i figure i can cut what u need and ship it out to you no problem. Its just your basic steel. Uncoated stock. So it'll be up to you to coat it so it doesnt rust! Let me know.

That would be great! It's weird I'm having so much trouble finding it around here, there's probably someplace down in GA (more redneck than my city) but I don't go down there often enough to know.

I'll pm you about it if you still can

Just go to hickory farms and buy (2) of there SAUSAGES and cut them to length, They should work great. Then you can slice the cheese with a chainsaw and wax your jeep with it.

If a tree falls in the woods then farts, Do the other trees smell it?
