Rear Bumpstop Issue

Hey guys, I’m running a 3” ish lift in the rear and still have not extended my bump stops. Just noticed that the ublots from the flip kit is hitting the bump stop as shown in the pic. I know i should probably get the timbrens, which ones do y’all use? Is there any modification I’ll need to make because of the lift? Alternatively what solutions have you all used for this issue. Thanks chase!

You need to trim those u-bolts for one thing. That length of them is probably all that's saved you from crushing a shock though.

They make spacers that install under the stock bumps to protect the shock on compression.

I'm running Timbrens SES bumps and I'm really pleased with them. They greatly improve the ride when you bottom them out which is rare with my Alcans in daily use.

Did you get the harsh rebound that some have reported? Why did you choose them over the Active offroad version

I got them for a good price is why I got them. As for harsh rebound, I've never hit them in daily use that I'm aware of. Even fully loaded with the amount of gear I carry ( PAGING @IssacHunter ) I don't think I've ever touched them (+500lb Alcans). As for off-road, I'm not doing high speed work so I don't really notice hitting them. Also since I'm running stock shackles and Alcans, I don't have to run the spacer with them to prevent inverting my leaves and I'm not constantly contacting them to use them to add capacity. I guess "it's not noticeable" is the closest answer I can give.

Well I do notice when we wheeled that your rig lands much easier than mine....but I did order the Active Offroad versions so maybe we can do a comparison someday lol. I also need to get some Alcan's at somepoint as my OME HD packs can't support my current fully loaded out weight anymore and Terry can tell you that I HATE the concrete oem bump stops.

You need to trim the excess unbolt thread. Only need about a 1/8 to 1/4” if threaded length past the nuts.

What’s the consensus on whether Timbren active off roads are tall enough to run longer shocks (like for 2.5” lift+)? In other words, just use Timbrens instead of extended bumpstops. They squish down quite a bit, so it is hard to directly compare the compressed height to the stock hard bumps.
I haven’t experienced any issues that suggest my shocks ever get fully compressed. They are the 5100 bils length for 2-3” lift (according to nisstec). The reason I ask is when I installed my lift shackles, I noticed that I still had at least an inch more downtravel in the suspension than the shocks allowed at full extension. Brackets and lines still seemed ok. Might get a size longer when I replace them to get additional travel.

Not sure about the Active line but I use the SES with a 4" lift with no issue.

I noticed the same in my Radflos from PRG and will be going with longer radflos in the rear next time around, as for the timbren questions i talked to maxterra and they should be good up to 4” easy. He said he’s run them for 3 years with no problem
