I have the exact same set up as you (Tanabe springs, TRD shocks). I used the stock bump stops, and I didn't cut them. Even though Tanabe says to cut them I wouldn't because you need that extra cushion for hard bumps...... :P

By not cutting the bumpstops you are limiting the travel of the shock body to only a few inches, if that, and it could become a problem once the springs settle and when you have a heavy load or multiple passengers in the car. Cutting them allows for more dampening of the shock over bumps. I've cut mine, and I would reccommend having them cut, but it is a matter of personal preference.
My DF210's did not come with bumpstops either. :ponder:

ill leave mine uncut... doesn't make a difference on the drop but it will when a nice pot-hole comes around gives you a lil more flex room.... its not like the bumpstop is made of metal it will flex... but yeah personal preference...
