    Bump stops are always nice to have. If you don't super flex your rig I'm gonna say no. But if you do some offroad stuff and disconnect the sway bars then it's always good to have the extra protection from slamming your suspension onto the axles. I'm still running the stock bump stops even tho they are rotted and junky. Better than nothing haha. As a matter of fact one of mine is completely rotted away and it's just a bolt with the bracket underneath hahaha. I havent wheeled my rig in a while so I havent thought nothing of it

    I agree with Boondoc. At only 1.5in lift your factory bump stops should cover you.
