What happens to the rear bumps stops when...

....you remove the stock lift block? It def looks like the bump stop hits the lil perch on the stock block. If I were to get a set of leafs put together so I wouldn't need the stock block, how do you take care of the bump stops?

Honestly when my truck was all stock and flexing I dont think I ever made it that far to hit them. Even when one of the wheels was off the ground it didnt touch, I could be wrong.

On the 2WD XLs and XLTs without the blocks, the bumpstops hit the axle tubes. But those trucks have shorter shocks than a Ranger Edge or 4x4 does. Your RCD/Bilstein 5100's are even longer than what comes on a factory 4x4. If you remove the blocks and drive it hard offroad, the 5100s will bottom out before the bumpstops hit. That can severely damage the shocks or their mounts.

...when it was standing still, not while driving it fully loaded and/or off road.
