Mine is a few inches. I thought for sure that I was going to get some rub out of it, being a D44 and all. But I dont have any rub. Its a few inches forward too, helping it out some.
lifting only pulls the axle back at ride height. on compression it will still go back to the original geometry.
bumpstops need to be utilized to keep the shocks from bottoming out, not stacked up to keep a track bar from hitting the differential. JKS should put in a little more time and correct the problem.
not everyone is interested in having poor uptravel. it causes a harsh ride when your slaming the stops in daily driving. might as well drive a YJ.

Properly positioned bump stops actually improve the ride.

yep. a 4" lift can use 2" bumpstops... the reason manufactures recommend 33" tires max for 4". it gives lots of uptravel in that combo without over compressing the spring.

right, because they are keeping the shock from bottoming out, not ridiculously long to keep something else from hitting, in that position, you have maximum up travel.

I have a few...

tj app...



wj grand cherokee app.. this is on my rubi with a nth degree frame brace, it has tons of clearance with my 2.5" lift, the bend is away from the diff instead of over it... the wj bar will work in the RE and clayton type front relocation brackets also. it'll work with the procomp bracket also.

without looking it up, I'm pretty sure they are RE1380.

here's a couple pics of stock bumpstops getting pushed out of the bell sockets.. they get hung up on the coils as you can see. longer ones are worse yet.

the shocks that come with a 4" lift need 2" bumpstops to keep em from bottoming out... without the bumpstops the shocks are your 2" bumpstops.

i'm gonna put these http://www.rubiconexpress.com/Search...px?part=RE1380 in the front and see if they help a little.do you think though that 2'' bumpstops are too much for a 2.5'' lift and 32'''s?
