Even if you did somehow manage to hit the tub, its not gonna hurt anything. It is double walled there and isn't visible.
Apologies for not thoroughly explaining myself.

The idea behind bringing the slider closer to the framerail is more to negate the prying force from a step recieving resistance from a rock. If you don't include a step in the design I assume its not as important.

Probably the same stickers that came with my steps.

That's what I figured because the steps come raw. So I wouldn't imagine they'd put a decal on it...

I suppose that could be an issue depending on design, but it would take one helluva hit to damage the slider in that way. My MetalCloak sliders don't attach under the tub at all, and they've taken serious abuse with no deformation to them or the tub. In fact, Ive watched the guy in front of me hit his Savvy sliders hard on a rock and dent the chromoly step thing, and my MetalCloak sliders took no damage from the same hit. Not trying to say anything bad about Savvy sliders, just saying you are gonna bend the slider before prying it loose with a hit that hard.

Sticker is separate. The gasket helps seal the slider. Not needed but for $30 I opted for it.

A lot of people just run a caulk bead across the top after install to keep water/dirt out.

Quick question. I believe my steering stabilizer is leaking. And I have JKU shocks just sitting in the basement. Could I use one as a stabilizer?

I know they're cheap and a dime a dozen, just curious if it would work.

Does it have 50/50 valving? Probably not

It won't be the same valving as a steering stabilizer, so it probably won't work. If you really want a new one kyb makes a stellar one for 30 bucks. But you really don't need a steering stabilizer for your jeep to drive good. I haven't ran one in about a year now.

Also aren't stock jku shocks charged? If so that would make your jeep pull like a mother****er.

I have no idea about the valving or anything. I know I don't need one, I just figure if I could do an easy solution I would. I'm guessing a TJ shock wouldn't work either? If not, **** it. Not a big deal.
