Anybody using the Daystar Stinger bump stops?

Our broncos are pretty heavy so I am curious how these will hold up. I have already ordered them so maybe I'll be the guinea pig.

Have been wondering the same. I could not find a really good answer when I looked as to how these do. I think in theory they should be fine, just maybe need changed out on somewhat regular basis.
If you run them please post how they do.... I think they maybe a good alternative to those of us that do not really pre-run but still want something extra for those bigger hits or un planned air time. I was considering these instead of real bumps with the expectation of replacing them every year.

Yup definetly planning on some sort of suspension limiting devices, not even close to that point yet though. Some bump stops are like crazy expensive for off food racing use, others are just urathane bumpers.

These are 'poser' bump stops meant to look like hydraulic ones. My bet is the traditional style while not as sexy would be a better choice. That or save up for the real deal.

I must have gotten them on a sale or something from Amazon because I got them for $150 for the pair. Now I see they are $220. I have already started on some of the fab work so I'm thinking I'll have them done this weekend. I'll post all that in my build thread.
I am a little worried about how the foam will hold up, but I will be putting them through their paces at Silver Lake Sand Dunes on Memorial Day weekend and will report back.
