The bumpstop? The 2 WJs that I have worked on required minimal trimming with a knife to have the bolt clear. It is possible to pull the stop out, but there isn't enough space to proper grasp it. Cutting is effective and pretty harmless.

Just done mine,lever the bump stop out with a screwdriver,I had to remove the cup it sits in aswell,with the bumpstop removed you can see the two bolts that hold the cup in place,remove the rear bolt & loosen the front & the cup will slide back enough to remove the bolt.cheers.
When I removed mine I just used 2 large slotted screwdrivers as prybars and one at a time pryed them up and in between the metal cup and the rubber bump-stop. each screwdriver will stretch and pry the bumpstop out little by little.
the sides of the metal cup that holds the bumpstop has two formed notches that bite into the left and right sides of the rubber bumpstop and they are just as effective after you reinstall the bumpstop.
Yes, it's completely replaceable. I actually had a hell of a time getting mine out the first time and I keep them lubed slightly just so I can quickly pull them out for track bar adjustments or other lift/suspension related stuff that requires it getting out of the way and I've put it on and off many times and it sits in there with grease, always easily removable, yet never falls out on it's own or anything. It's poly or something similar, it's not really going to wear out. But if it did, you could just bang the tabs in a little deeper to tighten it up, or buy replacement ones from Crown, which I never expect to have to do.
