    Looking to put 35's (technically 34.8's with 285/75r18) on stock Overland wheels. I will be adding the 1.5" level kit to the front, with the shock extensions. Will also be adding a 3/4" spacer to the rear. I do not plan on doing too much wheeling, however don't want a nasty bump to cause any damage: SHOULD I put a bump stop extension on the front and rear? I am willing to DIY as in a hockey puck in the front, and maybe get something for the back as it seems a little less straight forward. No plans on any other suspension mods. Overland with Tow Package (Not sure if that changes anything like the Max Tow though).

    Installed the Daystar 2" spacer lift (2" spacer front, 1" spacer rear) and it only came with bump stops for the front. Also came with shock extensions for the front but the rear shocks bolt back up to the stock location. If you are only adding 3/4" spacer at the rear should be fine as is.

    Does the Daystar 2" kit come like that (2" front 1" rear)? The description on the website says 2" front and rear.

    It’s 2” front and 1.5” rear. It also now comes with shock extensions for the rear too.

    The kit might have the rear shock extensions. My kit came with them but no instructions on how to install. Received updated instructions for rear shock extensions and have installed. The original kit came with .75" rear spacers but have since received 1.5" spacers for the rear.

    I made my own front bump stop extensions using PVC conduit end caps and bolts. Total was $5 bucks or so. I think I have a video of them somewhere...
