Default Bump Stop Kits???
I know there is several discussion on this topic, but I was wondering which one looks like would perform in extreme off road situations if the opportunity came up? I was checking out ADD, outlaw raptor, and RPG. Below I added the links for the bump stops on their websites. It looks like outlaw raptor's look heavy duty and better from the pictures. I would like some opinions. I'm also not bashing on any vendors because they all have great reviews . I'm just looking the best off road and on road performance and comfort. Also I'll be installing them with King 3.0 with deaver.
Also do the bump stop guarantee your frame won't bend if you go balls?

nothing can be guaranteed. but if you talk to some of the hardcore drivers, sprsnk, raptor addict, chrisandalex, rpg, outlaw, etc, etc.... they, (and all the rest of us) will tell you that no matter which path you take, it will be a vast improvement, but at some point physics takes over. the big question is, how much air are you planning on catching? and how often? that will help determine what you should do

I went with RPG. I don't know if it's better than the rest but it works for me

that's the idea of a bump stop. protection! I personally am screwing with out a condom. I should buy some but if you ride the safe ones you'll be ok it's hitting the unknown that will get ya.

I also did the RPG Stage 3 kit and so far it's been great. There customer service is outstanding.
Personally I'd recommend them to anyone but I've never compared any other so it really is your preference.
There kit is extremely BEEFY and it looks like it'll take a licking and keep on ticking for a very long time.JMO

I had a set of Deavers on my first truck and on this truck I have a set of Nationals from RPG. IMO the Nationals are a better route to go. They work better with the truck than the Deavers did. Feel more progressive than the Deavers and don't blow through the stroke as quick.

I had the RPG bumpstop kit on both trucks.

Which set of springs, Nationals or Deavers, do you think were a softer ride? I am looking for a cush ride! I never plan on towing anything and will rarely have anything in the bed.
