      Will these fit a 2018 JLU? If not do you know any that will?

      • We do apologize but at this time we can only confirm fitment with the JK models and we do not currently carry any for the JL.

      Will these be long enough to touch the spare tire if I am using a spare tire relocation bracket?

      • The Daystar Tailgate Bump Stop Kit will work with most spare tire relocation brackets, however since final fitment will depend on your wheel offset, tire size and the specific relocation bracket you choose, we cannot say for certain without more information. Please contact our Customer Service Department for further assistance with this.

          Horrible product

          Stay away from this item! It’s made of a soft material that doesn’t provide much/any support it doesn’t fit inside the holes on the gate of the JK

          though these were a little hard to get into the tailgate. they work very well and keep the tire stable.

          Adequate

          Just like all the other reviews say, the threads on these are completely wrong. The primary problem is that the diameter of the threaded portion gets bigger, so you have to dig into it with a knife or hacksaw to get the threads to fit. It can be done, though you will still have to push inward very hard while threading it in. The second issue is that the thread pitch is completely wrong, which causes it to go in at an angle. In some cases with larger diameter tires you can use this angle to your advantage, though.

          Stop the rattles!

          Product works pretty well. It doesn't totally eliminate all rattles, but 90 better. Using the stock opening with a 35" tire, means that the bumps don't actually line up with the tire. I set them at a angle to rest on the tire half expecting them to fall out. Still there.

          The holes are oval and I could not screw them in. I had to use a razor knife to trim the screw threads until they fit. Terrible fit.

          Bad Design

          The tabs don’t fit the holes in my tailgate. I had to trim them down to get them in. The stops are made of dense foam, and the mounting tabs have some kind of hard coating. So when I trimmed them down they were no longer rigid and didn’t hold very well. Also, when I mounted my tire the bump stops didn’t compress, they just moved to the side and didn’t hold the tire at all. I tried to move them back against the tire but they just popped back out. This was wasted money.

          Bump Stop Replacement

          Easy to install. My installed spare tire bump stops didn't even touch the new 35" spare tire. These did and reduced the noise when hitting bumps and the tire moving around.

          They’re not designed well.

          There’s no way these will work as is. I had to trim down the threaded part to fit. If you don’t you’ll destroy them. Once you get them in they’ll be ok.

          bumper stops with a twist

          tailgate bump stop kit did the trick, I did not know they made such a product. only problem is you need to deepen the threads on the plastic ends that insert into the existing holes in the tailgate. plastic end ( inserts )are larger than the ones from the factory, which are rubber and are pushed into the existing holes. I used a small hack saw , deepened the threads, a little grease and they screwed in with no problem. good product

          Pour quality

          First one ripped in pieces trying to install. Second one won’t fully insert into the hole on the tailgate resulting in pour performance.

          Ripped when instaled

          As soon as I start to install, twist into tailgate, it ripped right in center. Maybe it's just this particular pair, I have other products from Daystart and never had a problem. The original tailgate bumper stop is made out of thick rubber, the Daystar is made out of spunge.

          The Bumb stoppers are great but they still not strong enough to stop the rattling. I don't hear it like I use to but hear and there it makes the rattling noise.

          Bummer Bump Stops

          These were supposed to fit my 2013 JK Wrangler, but could never attach them. I tried lubricant, shaving the width a tiny bit, and nothing. My son tried, had the same results, and then one tore in half. From an engineering design, I don't see how they will last if you could get them on. There are 3 control points that don't add but take away from the strength. I would not recommend this product.

          DAYSTAR BUMP STOP

          Both went in easily, I did lube the nipples a little with Extreme Armour All first though, I had to trim the first rib off for my set up but that was super easy with a cerated knife and then I sanded the cut smooth. Highly recommend this product.
