Air bumps

Looking for your opinion.
I really like the way my jeep rides on road. Off road it is good except where I live we have a lot of deactivation ditches. When disconnected and I run through them at a speed faster than a crawl I bottom out hard. I was going to buy some air bumps for the front but the price has got me thinking. being that these are Canadian prices they will be more than what you can pay but the price difference is comparable.
fox bumps $905
King bumps $623
Dv8 bumps $405
I have considered sumo springs but I believe in buy once cry once. Would any of you buy the DV8 ones? Are the fox or kings comparable?

The DV8 look like they might be made by king or the did a nice job copying kings. Profender may be another brand to look at for a better price. I have never meet anyone running the DV8 and have heard nothing bad about profender. Fox and King are proven race shocks and would be the way I would go. Check the air pressure ratings as it may give you an indications of the quality of the seals.

In addition to the air shocks you should make sure you have some decent up travel in your suspension. Even with air bumps, set ups with 4" of up travel are still going to bottom out but it will not be as harsh.

Some build info here:

I got the foa 2 inch bumps. In my eyes a bump is a bump and I spent the money on my fox coilovers.
