Thank you guys for this thread, I was having the same issues with the rear chewing up my tires on the trail. I have the IRO 3 inch coil lift with General Grabbers 265/70R17 (32s) and saw the bump stomp extenders and was researching them. The guys that have them are you running the 3 inch extenders I was going to go with them so my wheels do not rub on the trail anymore? I also already have all new four lower isolators and some OME 10mm spacers from Kolak waiting to be installed as well for my setup.

Here is a link to the pictures of my setup my jeep is the white one with all the pictures on this page. I cannot upload my pictures they are too big I guess the changed some settings on the site:

Correct but I only do light wheeling and some rock but nothing big. I just want to prevent my tires from getting chewed up in my fenders especially in the rear.

Good grief. I'm on an IRO 3" lift and am headed out wheeling this weekend and haven't trimmed or bump stopped anything. On 32" tires as well.

Sounds like I will see what all I need to modify pretty quickly.

Take off your front bumper and youll be fine. Light rubbing in rear but that's fixable. Just went wheeling last weekend and forgot to take mine off........ I'm now in need of a new bumper. Oh well upgrade time. 3" bumpstops that's crazy! I measured at close to 4" of lift and only got 2" bumpstops.

I see everyone has 16" rims, I just installed the 3" IRO Lift too but I have the 17" factory rogues and was wondering what size tire I should get for them. Right now I just have 235/70/17.

Are you sure your bumpstops even work at only 2" extension? How much are your tires???

Are you running with disconnected front sway bars?

Wanted to add my experiences here if I may.

Went wheeling for the first time this weekend since my 3" IRO lift. Rubbed pretty badly in the rear but not horrible (not bad enough to break something) and had a front spring come unseated on the trail...not cool but caught in time it wasn't a huge deal. Backed down slowly and had a buddy pop it back into place before backing all the way down the obstacle.

With front bumper removed(painless and WELL WORTH IT to save your front bumper + additional approach angle) I did not rub anything in the front at all. My plastic fender liners are completely removed front and rear and my windshield washer fluid reservoir has been removed as well. Getting this out was more of a PITA than anything else really.

If you are gonna wheel like you've got a pair while disco'ed then I recommend installing spring retainers be added to your build sheet as well. I didn't plan to go disco'd that day but when I lost an endlink bolt I really had no choice but to disco both sides.

As a result of this past weekend of learning experiences I now decided I need...JKS QD's, rear bumpstop extensions(1.5" maybe? Running 265/70/17 tire), and front upper and lower spring retainers.

In this pic the spring is unseated though tough to see, I was further up the rock face when it popped out. Pic was taken after I had backed down some.



You can hear the rear rubbing in this video but the quality is horrible. I will run this again and shoot it with a real camera. And oh yeah, be prepared to crane your head 90 degrees to watch it haha.
