My truck has been with out bump stops and a fresh coat of paint:p after the new axle install for too many trips. So before I head out to Pismo to put a hole in my oil pan I thought I would put on some bumps. Been toying with the idea of air bumps for along time now, but not sure if I am going to tube the front of my truck out yet when putting in the new LQ4, stay tuned, so putting all the work into mounting cans correctly is a wast of time rite now
A lot of guys in my club run Bravada bumps and swear by them.
So I decided that I would head to the junk yard and find some Bravada bumps. They are super easy to pull, only bolt holding them on, and the "bump can" and bump and be easily separated to get to the bolt easier. the bump just pops into the can, also if you tear one, you just pop in new rubber. So while cruzing the JY I came across a Nissan Pathfinder and it had these perfect bumps, SUPER SOFT, I mean really soft. because of the huge holes in the pattern. So wanting to try something different I pulled them and put them on the truck hour before we left.
I was going to cut the factory mount and make my own to fit the curve of the frame, but the factory lean on the mount worked great for where my axle is( about 8-9" forward of stock).
They work awesome, really progressive, and can take a hard hit, have 5 1/2" of up travel, and these worked perfect for HARD bottom outs and jumps. I think they are better then Bravada bumps performance wise. but if i tear one, it will be PITA to fix rather then "just pop a new rubber on":grinpimp:
either way you go they are both great option for a cheap factory bump that's better then any of the poly after market ones I have used or seen used.
