Does anyone know how much the factory rear bumpstops flex? Are they pretty solid or do they just move right out of the way?

The part sticking out of the cup is the jounce bumper & it compresses all the way...when setting bumps, you set them to the cup, not the bumper

Went on a nice trail ride yesterday and today All pics are the same trail. Nothing too serious...yet.




This part, you can't see too well, but the only way to get up is to hug the far left. The hood is blocking what is actually a really deep washout. The left is the only way up and down. Ofcourse pictures don't do it justice.



Here's where things went bad. I tried to get up this ledge and failed, then my buddy tried. The thing is, it's washed out and the ledges are too high for a non locked Jeep. Pictures never do anything justice...anyway backing off of it. His pedal got jammed on his carpet or something and in his panic he through it too fast and it went into drive. Proceeded to break the front diff housing and shred the gears.





So that's no fun. We'll swap in a junkyard diff sometime next week.

On the way down...





All in all it's a really fun trail I've driven 30-40 times. No real issues if you choose the right line. If you don't, you can get seriously ****ed up. I've got a GoPro of the whole trail if anybody wants to see it.

You don't have any problems with your swaybar links hanging down that low?

Out of all the things.

But not really. I don't have zip ties, or care enough, to get them out of the way. Occasionally they'll hit something but they just come back to that spot. There's nothing steep enough I'm going to try that they would interfere with.
