bumpstop question

Ok, here is the deal.

Background:
I currently have an RE 4.5 lift, 33 tires, TJ flares, track bar removed, and sway bar removed. Plus the 35 has been replaced with a 44.

Issue:
I came back from wheeling last week and I found i am rubbing on the front fenders still. I rubbed enough to actually start bending my front fenders.

How do I stop my jeep from creating bent body parts?

New bump-stops
Tube fenders
Just drive it?
1 inch body lift

Increasing bumpstop height will sacrafice up travel. Alot of tube style fenders actually reduce tire clearance. I'd look at a small BL no greater than 1.25". It would also allow space for other mods to maximize clearance.
