    LJ w/ 3.5 Game Changer Bump stop question

    Good morning Modern Jeepers.

    I am in the process of getting my GC 3.5 system installed. I purchased the full kit, minus shocks, since I had a new set of Rancho RS9000s. I am trying to get an idea of how much bump stop I should end up with (1-4inches), subject to actually cycling the suspension. My Jeep is an 05 LJ Rubicon, running 285/75r16s. The shocks I have stats:

    Front
    Compressed - 16.110
    Extended - 25.970
    Travel - 9.860

    Rear
    15.313
    24.188
    8.875

    Just looking for ballpark ideas so I can verify where its at when I pick it up from my installer. Also, since my travel isn't nearly as good as the Rockport or ARB shocks, any thoughts on if I should look at limited straps, or do bumpstops generally cover this?

    Thanks!

    What fenders are you running? Also, how much back spacing on your wheels?

    With that collapsed shock length you will need 3-4" of bump stop to protect the shocks.
