Bumpstops...How Big?

I installed a 1" BL and a 2.25" BB last week. The front bumpstop went back in its original spot without modification and the rear bumpstop went in after I put the spacer block between the bumpstop cup and the mount. I followed directions that were included in the kit.

My question is I have picked up my wheels and tires (33") and am getting ready to put them on but they look REALLY BIG off the Jeep. Do I need to purchase longer bumpstops? If so how do I determine how big I need?

This is strickly an on road driver. Thanks

Strickly onroad, you dont need new bumpstops. If you ever go offroad, you will want to put a 2" up front to stop the 33's from contacting the fender.

As stated above, strictly on road is fine. If you do decide to take it off road, you may want to mount a hockey puck in the coils on top of the axle. It's a really cheap bumpstop extension.
