On my gen 2, I had SVC bump stops installed and they kept the truck safe and controlled on bottom outs. I see there are a few less options out there for the gen 3. RPG and Foutz offer bump stops. I don't see any posts on here about folks installing bump stops. Can anyone weigh in on whether these are a good idea, and which one to get?

I'm sure that SVC will co.w out with their option soon. R&D and testing takes time. And I'm sure that they had to wait for a truck like everyone else before starting the process.

New truck has much better rear suspension with more travel, so it isn't quite as necessary to have hydraulic bumps as before. However definitely an upgrade. If you want something now, why not just get the RPG setup?

Definitely curious what SVC will come up with. That said, I would love to hear now from anyone who has run the existing offerings (RPG, Foutz, etc.) and can comment on improvements. Or, curious of guys who had air bump stops on prior gen 1 and 2 trucks, have run the gen 3 hard, and have decided to not get bump stops for the gen 3.

I'm running the RPG frame support kit with FOX bump stops. The bumps move when doing track days. I can tell by the dust lines on the bump shafts. I've got mine set to 100 psi and I'm still only using about half of the 2.5" travel of the bumps. They really take the harshness out of landing. I recall jumping a stock truck at Raptor Assault on a pretty mild jump and feeling the landing. It was still smooth, but you knew you were in the air and landed. The jumps I've since done in my truck are bigger, where I'm jumping higher and further, yet they don't feel as harsh. I chalk that up to these bumps slowing things down before reaching full travel. I should add that my first track day was after I had the bump stop kit installed.

Some more info on this topic in this thread:

Thanks @dirtlvr that's good info, and totally lines up with my 2019 experience. Do you have stock coilovers and rear shocks on your gen 3?

Hoping others still chime in with their thoughts and experiences!

Yes, stock coil springs and shocks in the back. RPG 1.5” collars up front.
