Removing bump stops

I'm trying to install my 2" bb but cannot get the bump stop off to slide the spacer over. I tried grinding in some and prying it, it seems to move, which makes me think its not welded in, but I also cut out the rubber (because it wouldn't come out at all) and don't see any bolt or anything to remove it. I can't get the best grip on it but I dont see it moving. Short of cutting it, how do you get this off?

edit: using bottle jack to press spacer over stop isn't an option, the bottle jack is too tall and no room for the spacer or wood

A pipe wrench is definately the tool for the job.

BB IS worth the time if you do not have the money for an expensive lift. Plus with a more expensive lift there is a lot more work to be done. Many of us use our XJ's for daily driving as well as mild wheelin'. To do a 6" lift with 33's is a bad idea for someone who uses their XJ for freeway etc. Everything has it's place.

Re: Removing bump stops

mine is 94 XJ & the bumpstop tower is welded on.

If you cant get a grip of the rubber bumpstop cut it off then get whats left of it with a drill

Re: Removing bump stops

The older ones just screw on, and as mentioned a pipe wrench is your best friend.
The newer ones have a bolt running up from the bottom. You need to remove the rubber to access it.
However, you only need to remove the older ones to install spacers, the newer ones don't have the lip that hangs them up. My 89 MJ has the older style, and my 90 XJ had the newer, so I'd guess that's the transition period.
BTW, don't try to remove the rubber on the older ones!

The tower itself is welded, but the bottom section with the rubber is seperate... unless someone welded it for some reason.

Re: Removing bump stops

2 mj's in the family 90+92, both appear to be welded on, is this the ones w/ a thru bolt you are talking about TRAILREADY? or is there a third style?

Re: Removing bump stops

I already removed the rubber on the one lol. I ended up just getting pissed and grabbing it like a babboon and got it off. Other side came off like butter in comparison. Other side took 30 mins including drilling new hole for the brake braket

Re: Removing bump stops

I actually didn't put the bump stops back on, because visually it looked like the distance between the tire and fender and bumpstops looked about the same. Next time I'm at the junkyard I'll pick one up.

and to XCM. This is a real lift for me. Right now the jeep is both my second car and my girlfriends car when she gets a job. I dont want it to be too lifted, but this satisfied her need for a lift. When I get a real job I either plan on getting her another car and lifting this one further, or getting my own and getting a 'real' lift. Right now I'm satisfied with my now slightly more capable offroad jeep, and my on road beast. Been putting mods on her off to get this jeep in good condition

Re: Removing bump stops

thanks Love spending money, dont make enough. Jeep is basically done now though, and is running 100% (for the time being) Jeep has a really nice stance now, might look into an add a leaf (I know its not the best idea) or adding more stock xj leaves to get it up another inch or so in the rear, but not for a while
