We've been working on and playing with XJ's for 10 years. We have first hand experience with the uniframes crushing when bolted through without a sleeve.

The gains you think you are making by skipping "self tappers" is moot. The strength of the sliders comes from the winch seam mount.
If the strength comes from the pinch seam mount than mine would be stronger than the JCR mounts. The JCR only uses 5 bolts per side where mine have 7. Also my pinch weld is sandwiched between two peices of flat stock. As far as the unibody crushing without a sleeve, the backer plate is 4"x6" its not just a blot head and washer.

So, what I really mean to say is ... Will the ultimate sliders work with say a rough stuff frame stiffener and the rough country long arm? Or will these things get in the way of the mounting of the slider?

Maybe if Rough Country made a frame stiffener. It all should work with frame stiffeners. Stiffeners add about an 1/8" of metal to your frame. It will be ok.

If you know what you're doing, no need to crush the frame. Spread out the pressure, no problem

The long arm shouldn't be an issue. Our front legs are in a location to avoid interference with the Long Arm lower mounting brackets are crossmembers.

If you add or have frame stiffeners, there is a drop down box that says "Frame Stiffeners?" that you would check "yes" for. Then some extra spacers come with the sliders to make everything work together.

Hey guy and JCR..

I have the JCR Stage 3 sliders and the RC Long Arms, I had to cut my front leg off the sliders and reweld it further towards the front of the Jeep to avoid the RC LA crossmember. FYI

EDIT: I don't have Ultimate Sliders, they appear that they would clear fine.

They cleared my TNT lift. Highly recommend doing stiffeners before sliders.
