I'm not sure about the bumpstops, but how wide are your tires? That'll determine wether you need spacers or not. I know if you have moabs and 33's, you'll rub at full steer, but of course it varies for every Jeep.

10.50 may clear but 12.50 will probably rub (mine did). The spacers are cheap and I like the slightly wider stance so I'd recommend installing them when the tires are put on. My shop actually threw them on for free when they installed the tires.

edit: It only rubbed on the passenger rear coil bucket so you could check there first. And if you have coil spacers for the lift, the bumpstops should just be relocated and you won't need new ones.
