what concerns me about running without bumpstops would be that every time you bottom out your shocks all the impact will be against your shock mounts instead of the much heavier duty axle to frame bumpstops. i am facing the same issue as i recently got new shocks that are a bit longer than what most would run with my lift. i did this so that i will have massive droop. i wheel pretty slow for the most part and dont need the compression. plus this will allow me to run a larger tire with less lift.
just my $.02
