    I would definitely get longer bumpstops or atleast lower your factory stops. I've seen 4" urethane stops as low as $50 a pair - It all depends on who you go through.

    The rear is usaly not a problem but the front with larger tires will have scrub poblesm. lowering the bumps will help from really jamming a tire in. you also need to get it flexed with passenger front stuffed and check driveshaft length. Lift springs change the arc the axle cycles at and as crazy as it sounds sometimes with a 4 inch lift your front driveshaft is 2 long. If it bottoms out you can rip the transfer case right off the back of the tranny. I have seen it happen and it aint pretty.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!
