Can I ask how much you paid for your Bump stops? Im researching the Pros/Cons of doing Hydraulic bump stops vs non Hydraulic.

Not alot of cons to hydro's as far as function. Unless cost is the factor. Been running em on the frt & definately doing rears soon.

I am looking at the Teraflex speedbumps, they do look like a good alternative. unaffected by temperature, progressive rate, less moving parts, don't need a charge, etc. Still not 100% sold yet though.

I will be interested to hear over time how you like the hydros.

07 Rubicon Unlimited - Teraflex 3" prerunner lift, 35's, 5.7 Hemi using AEV kit, Teraflex CRD60 rear with 5:13 gears all around.

This may be dumb, forgive me, can you explain the difference of the teraflex speedbumps over one that needs a charge? what charge does it need?

Air bumps use nitrogen gas as the spring and you can adjust the pressure to make them soft or hard and some may leak a little over time and need to be recharged where the TF bumps use a composite material as the spring to slow down the axle as it bottoms out...

I love em. Not really sold on the stinger design. If your going to step up, Id go with Hydro's. Id rather stick w/Hydro's. Especially the rear, not a big fan of two collapsible bumpstops for a bumpstop.

Theyre like everything, if not maintained theyll leak. Otherwise they dont need constant recharging. You will need to go w/a quality gauge set-up for checking PSI. KarTek sells a great one. All kinds of stuff can leak, shocks, tires, etc, I definately wouldnt let charging be an issue of not going w/Hydros. They rarely should need charging, unless something is worn.

Im running JKS ACOS PRO in the frt. Ill probably get the mount plate from EVO & keep scouring classifieds for bumps in the back.

There is no match for hydraulic bump stops imho. No you do not need to recharge them on regular basis i have been running them for almost a year with no gas leak or anything same as my king shocks nitro filled
I dont do rock crawling so hydro bump stops are essential for my kind of trials and driving.

Teraflex are not hydro bump stops they are just another foam filled bumpstops and i dont see any reason conpared to stock.

You need a custom job to install hydros in front and rear and cutting and welding is reqd also you have to loose or cut modify the windscreen washer bottle to clear the bump stop on left side

The tyres are Maxxis Trepadors 37."

There is a difference in the stock and TF bumps watch the vid! yes hydro's are better but some don't want to hack up the frame to install the rear bump cans so the only other options are the TF and JKS bumps the problem with the JKS set up is you add 1.5 in of lift in the front and i think it was 2 in of lift in the rear so to keep the same amount of lift you will have to go to a shorter spring to compensate for the difference?
