Timbren Bump stops on 2002 Dakota Quad Cab

    Hello,

    I have a friend that is putting a 7.5 Western plow on his 2002 Dakota Quad cab.

    He wants to put Timbren Bump stops in the front end help handle the extra load of the plow. He was wondering if he would need to put the bump stops in the rear? We feel the rears would not be needed. He's not going to be putting any spreaders in the rear.

    Any comments on rear bump stops or on bump stops in general for the Dakota and a Western plow?

    Thanks.

    I have an 02 quad cab dakota with a 7.5 western and timbrens in the front. No need for timbrens in the rear just the appropriate amount of ballast.

    Agreed. I only did it front and rear if I ever have a heavy load, tow, etc. I mean its not pricey for the added capacity it adds. Also a Tailgate Spreader is a great way to add ballast and functionality at the same time Thumbs Up
