Bump stops

I have a 97 Wrangler 4.0 auto with a 3.25" lift riding on BFG AT 32x11.5x15 tires. What is the proper size bump stop I should have installed?

No one can answer that. You need to pull the springs and cycle the suspension. See the faq section for instructions.

X2 on this. Every Jeep is a little different from weight to lift and everything in between.

You'll definitely want to get the proper bump stops in place to ensure that you don't hurt the shocks or have issues with the tires interfering with the body. Cycle the suspensions and see what currently limits travel, if it's the shocks being fully compressed you'll need to measure and extend your bump stops accordingly.

Let us know if you have any other questions!
