Did they tell you to cut the bump stop?
Don't want to bottom out the air bag or the shock when you are running no or low air.
No good for the air bags if they bottom...or the shock if it reaches it's down travel limit.

Tyger makes bolt on mirrors for all trucks I think. Here's the Search link for Amazon, just enter your truck make model to filter for your vehicle, if you're interested.

Joust Bumpers

TotalLoss, with the Siverado and Sierra, the joust bumpers are totally removed and the Ride-Rites attach to the frame at that point. As long as minimum pressure is maintained in the bags there is no problem. Apparently this varies per vehicle manufacturer.

They have joust bumpers built inside the bags now so pressure really isn't an issue
