Since I live in the desert, it would only make sense to build my bronco up as a pre runner . I'm still deciding what I want to do with the front end...The southwest performance bolt on DD looks sweet, and Threat makes seems to make some very reasonable C&T setups. Decisions, decisions...

The bump stops definitely stop the big hits and although with the shock tuning I am not hitting as hard or as often, I still feel that they are important to have.

I raced for several years in both stock mini and stock full using Deaver race packs and two bypass shocks on each corner on both trucks. In those classes, hydro bumps are not allowed and I can tell you it was a huge disadvantage. I used to replace the blown out rubber stops every race, by the end all that would be left is the plate and bolt. I tried to set up the bypass shocks on the stock full to work as a bump with a ton of compression in the final part of the stroke but it was not nearly as smooth as having the hydro bumps.
do you have a build thread on your rig? would be interested in reading it and seeing what went into your build as i have an 84 and my plans for it happen to be along the lines of what youve done with yours.

2000 F250 XLT CCSB: 4x4, 7.3 DSL, GT38R, DP-Tuned, Banks Exhaust, AIS Intake, Ranchand, Bushwackers.

1984 Bronco: 302, C6, needs a ton of work.
