Smittybilt XRC Rock Sliders- Will TJ version fit?

I've noticed from several pictures on the web that the YJ XRC sliders have a weird cut out for the front fender. I don't like the way the cutout looks, nor the lack of coverage for that area, nor the possibility that it may hang up on something.

I'm also planning on running a set of TJ flares in the next few months.

I was wondering if the TJ sliders would still bolt up to the YJ tub and play nice with the TJ fenders. I'm more concerned about them bolting up however.

I appreciate any insight.

Smittybilt will not because it attaches to the body mounts and not the tub itself. Trust me when I say that it won't even bolt up to most tjs. It took three hours and the use of my grinder and blue wrench to get it to fit. The side armor on the other hand is interchangeable.
