eh occasionally I blur mine out in my photobucket pics but never really put much effort into it. In my eyes its not something theyre sharing with you privately and its out in a parking lot for the world to see so its not a violation of privacy. Taking a pic of the inside of someone's home.... thats a violation of privacy.

Camping site is reserved for Oct 20-23, I am addicted to Moab. It looks like I will be there for work on Oct 28th also. I might have to drive the jeep down to do some wheeling after work hours.

I'll share my pics and measurements with you...but there are many factors:

How much have you trimmed?
What size tires are you running?
What offset do your wheels have?
Will you disconnect your sway bars?
Do you have adjustable control arms? If so, how far forward/backward is your axle set?

I have a total of 5 inches of bumpstop up front. I don't rub, and I am still able to tuck very well.

This pic shows that the upper bump stop is extended 2 inches (the camera angle makes it look a bit different, but it is 2 inches)


This pic shows lower bump stops I added to the top of the axle so that I could prevent rubbing problems. I just used some metal we had at our place. It is another 3 inches (5 inches total)


It tucks and flexes well with these bump stops:

I would install everything, trim as much as you plan on trimming, the measure and build your bump stops to the right length.

I installed my t-case skid today. There was a problem with fitment, and I was impressed with the response time from Kevin's Offroad. They had a new part out to me in less than a week. I will be buying from them again!

Since my long arm brackets act as a t-case drop, I needed to space the skid down. Rather than build something fancy, I came up with a great spacing solution. I just used two over sized nuts between the skid and bracket. It worked perfectly. I plan on laying down some bead to stitch the bracket to the unibody.

I took the Jeep up to hills to flex it out and measure for new shocks. I am going to get shorter rear shocks as the ones I have are too long. They actually limit my up-travel.

Since I am sick of hearing the licence plate rattle around in the front window, I drilled the front holes for the winch fairlead and installed that with the front licence plate over it...

Looking good! So if your shocks are limiting your uptravel, what length bumpstop are you running in the rear? Im thinking of my 35's again, and I was running 6" rear bumpstops with no trimming. Now that I cut out alot from the fender in the rear, im wanting to know what i can get away with for bumpstop.

looks great, im sure it will be even better with shocks. what kind were the shocks you are currently running? im assuming they probably came with the kit or something? and more importantly, what kind of shocks are you going to go with?

They look like they are about 2 inches. I will be adding more to them though. The shocks I ordered will allow an inch and a half more uptravel, which should clear everything on the body.

Do you still have those same bumpstops in, any pics?
