I have that same Wheelers kit sitting in my room. Hoping to install soon. Everything looks solid but aside from looks I really couldn't tell you anything else about it.

I want to cut a small length off the ends of the Ubolts
I’d stay away from cutting for the sake of removal later down the line, re-threading the end can be a bitch if it’s not cut cleanly and most wheels won’t preserve a thread

I definitely recommend Wheelers for just about anything. Their CS is great, they ship quickly and they carry a ton of odds and ends you cant typically find in other places. We are running their flip with their super bumps on all of our vehicles mins the T4R (obviously).

I've got one but had my u-bolts custom made by a company in Gilbert AZ. I use the Icon top plates which double as striker pads for my air bumps. I just installed the wheelers ones for a buddy and they seemed to be perfectly fine, just not quite as heavy duty as the ones I had made.

I've run my wheeler's flip kit for about 8 years now without any issues, I think really any kit is going to be good enough!

yeah dude, they suck. Couldn't get the bolts right then didn't wanna warranty anything. Worked out in the end but would never use them for anything again
A hassle is one thing but having to deal with BS customer service on top is another thing. Glad it all worked out though!

Who is running a ubolt flip kit? I am looking into upgrading my suspension system. Looking into ubolt flip kits and bump stops and also shackle flips. Anyone running either?
Need to look into this as well, I just picked up a set of longer ARB U-Bolts, but ultimately wanted to do the flip kit.

Is anybody here running the timbren one ?thinking or know of someone that has?
The Timbrens are nice progressive bump stops but they are also really long, meaning many people find they're on the bumps before they should / have to be. The Wheeler's SuperBumps are what I'm going with simply because they have about the same progressive feeling to them without being so high that you're on them prematurely.
