Looking for pneumatic/hydrailic bump stops that would replace the factory front 392XR ones. Would like to slow down the impact.

Any input would be appreciated.

None of the JL options available that I have seen will work on the 392 without modifications. The tube that they install in is longer on the 392 making them non adjustable. With the short up travel available on the 392 the pneumatic bump stop would have to be almost touching the coil pad.

The fox hydros work great, and you do end up needing to cut off a greater length of the bump tower compared to what you’d cut off for a non 392 / non XR. Said another way - You need to end up with the same length of remaining bump tower to accommodate the hydros , regardless of whether you’re starting with the standard JL rubi or an XR / 392.

From there, you want to cycle your suspension and add bump pucks to the point where your hydro bumps reach full compression before bottoming out your shocks or knocking off your fenders.

I have them in combo with MC 3.5 lift and fox 2.5 resi shocks. I probably only have a couple inches of up travel before the hydro bumps make first contact, but then there’s a couple more inches of travel before the hydros fully compress. I think I’m around 4” or maybe 4.5” of uptravel total.

It’s a pretty smooth transition from shock-only compression to shock+bump compression. I sometimes hear the initial “click” contact (if windows are down) but I don’t feel it. Full bump compression feels like a super mild and controlled non-event.
