This works too. These are the numbers you should use to set up mounts.

Let me rephrase that. Measure your mounts on your Jeep at full droop and full bump. Then look at fully extended and fully collapsed measurements when looking for shocks.

Yeah you don't want your shocks bottoming out...you bumpstop until the shocks almost collapse.

Im trying to think what all was holding me back, It has to be the shocks bottoming out. Im at 3.5in of lift with 31x10.5c15's. I trimmed the fenders and the front inner fender seam. I drove up the rti ramp until one rear wheel came off the ground, or until I was at full flex. The tire that was stuffed up front had more room to go so If I were to add extended bump stops up front It would be to keep the shock from bottoming out, further decreasing my flex.
My shock specs are:
The rear are about 23.25" extended, 15" collapsed.
The front are about 22.75" extended, 14.75" collapsed.
I most likely have to pull a coil and jack up the axle to see how much bump stopping I need.
