I had more time to improve bump stop Version 2.0, these should hold up a little better.

Might I recommend going straight up from the axletube with a piece of square tubing with a cap on the end? Would look a lot cleaner, and wouldn't be introducing strange side stresses into your ubolts/leafsprings.

Like everyone else has said, love the cage. I'm surprised you went that long without seriously trimming fenders. Planning on doing some trimming on the gf's xj when her stock tires wear out...
