hydrolic bump stops

i was thinking of the idea of mounting hydrolic bump stops to my stock 4x4 in replacement of the rubber ones...just wondering if there will be a advantage or just a waste of time and money...

kinda like this but with just stock suspension with a little t-bar crank

sure there could be an advantage. but at the cost of 400-500 bucks would it be worth it for your application? thats your decision...

Yea, it's worth it... but there arn't any that will fit on the stock suspension. Maybe, just maybe, one of the new short body/stroke SAW's... but definitely not a 4"...
