Are OME bumpstop extensions needed for 2.5" lift and 31" tires?

I installed a 2.5" OME lift but didn't have the bumpstop extensions at the time of installation, they were supposed to be in the kit but were not. I am running 31x10.5 on 1999 Tj. Do I need to go ahead and install these rear bumpstop extensions for 31" tires or are they not needed unless I go to a larger tire?

yes they are needed. in fact they're a little to short. you need 1.25" in the rear. this is to prevent the rear shocks from bottoming out.

Dirk at DPG sent me 2" extensions for the kit he sent me. I'm running 31" and a total of around 4" with OME kit and JKS BL
