The bump stops are adding a certain amount of progressive spring pressure. As far as how much, it depends on how compressed they are. There is a approx 1" difference between the top and bottom setting on the Bilsteins, so on the bottom setting it's safe to say they are compressed a bit. I don't know anyone who has had them on then took them off to comment on the ride quality change so it's impossible to say. But they can't be so soft they don't affect the ride yet actually protect anything.
I don't have any experience with a tune on a 2014+ truck..but I'm wondering, do you have stock wheels and tires? 2wd or 4wd? I assume 4wd because of the Z71 but I'm not sure if that was 4wd only. I think your best bet is 4.10 gears with a tune. Hopefully others have more experience towing in a tuned truck.
Any updates on these? Are you still liking them? I called Halo last week and found they use 700lb front springs. I think I read stock is 560. Seems like they would ride pretty firm.
