minimum of 2" up front, the rear depends only on the shock length to prevent them from bottoming out.

The RE BB I had came with them as well -- 2" bumpstop extensions for the rear. I didn't extend the front ones.

I have the added weight of a winch going up front so i suspect 3 up front and 2 out back would not be a bad idea...right

Flex the suspension of the jeep until the 33s are almost hitting the fender, measure the distance between the bump stop and bump stop pad on the axle, that's how much bump stop you need.

weight doesn't affect bump stop length...

33's and 2.5" lift, lift height is irrelevent... 2" bumpstops fully articulated with 25.5" long shocks...

Interesting. I am considering a 2.5 ome kit with 33's. I dont want a BL but would consider a MML and maybe a tcase drop.
