Default Change Fox Bump Stop Pad for Towing
I bought a set of used Fox bump stop pads that are purposed for increased towing capacity. The larger pad extends the original Fox bump stop by about 4". It does this by replacing the original pad. And adds adjustability to the RPG bump stop kit.

Original, off-road and daily driver fix bump stop on the RPG kit.

To remove the original pad at the end of the Fox bump is fairly easy. You Need to jack up the body of the truck to give enough room to install the new pad. I put a jack under the tow hitch and raised the truck far enough to where the wheels were still on the ground. I put jack stands under the rear recovery hooks for safety.

The tools required for the change out are minimal.
3/16" allan head socket & ratchet
(Or wrench)
7/16" socket & 1/4" ratchet

If this is the first time you are changing the bump pad, you may also need the following:
Medium flat head screw driver for prying
Rubber mallet
Anti-seize

1) remove the cap screw and nylon nut with the 3/16" allan socket (or wrench) and the 7/16" socket.

2) remove the bump pad. It is a tight fit. This is where the screw driver and rubber mallet come in handy.

To remove the bolt, I had to use an Allan wrench to help push it through. uploadfromtaptalk1412686520501.jpg

Comparison of the two pads

3) once the original pad was removed, I cleaned the receiving cup on the bump stop with some 3M pads. As you can see, there is dirt and some slight corrosion.

4) I put some anti-sieze in the cup and some on the mounting bolt. Align the mounting holes with the new larger pad.

5) install the bolt and nut. Tighten them down.

6) Repeat on the other side.

7) Remove the jack stands and lower the truck.

8) you will be able to see that the pad will be in contact with the strike pad on the axle.

Once the truck was loaded and the popup attached we hit the road. An immediate difference could be felt. With the rear of the truck riding on the bumps stops we could feel every little bump in the road. My truck already towes well with the National HD Springs. So I did not care for the ride at all. It wasn't horrible, but didn't care for it.

If I had a much heavier load to carry, I would use theses. But for long road trips with the popup, I'll probably forgo them.

Once we got to camp for the Havoc in the Hills II run, I changed the bump pad back to the original. It was quite simple and took me about 15 minutes. Including opening a beer and getting the tools out of the off-road tool box.

I'll load more pics once this is approved and I can add another post.

RPG is who I'd contact.
I don't have part number or know exactly what the extension is called.

Here are some more photos from that weekends install and prep for Havoc.

Nice! You'll have to post your thoughts on them once you get a chance to tow with them.

Question, does this help with the excessive sagging? When I load my vette on a Uhaul car trailer the truck dropps right down onto the bumps and is crazy nose high. I'll be doing more towing once racing season starts so if this will help the truck ride level I'd be all about it!

Curious how you like it 2 years later?

So thinking of getting a 9500lb travel trailer would this be an option could I tow it without killing my suspension?

Do you have a link to buy them?

Thanks Justin

Hello @Justinb
I didn't like the ride with these installed, but most of my travels are more than a few hours.
If around town, or a heavier load, these are ideal.
For now, my National HD +3" springs do what I need.

If you are interested, I'll sell you this set. $50 out the door.
