I got the JCR's because they only have 2 kickers (I have a KOR t-case skid so the bracket would get in the way of a middle kicker) and they stick out past the doors for more lateral coverage.
The front kickers were about 3/4" too short. The sliders flex a lot when you support the weight of the Jeep on them. They are stout and built well, they just need more work on the R&D to make them fit better.

some people have that problem and it might be the way the the rail was jacked up during the install, there was a tread on it.

i picked up a used set of there stage 2 and just have to finish cleaning and painting it before i can mount it.

installed Rusty's 2" BB.
Customer service was great and shipped fast
1hr and a half worth of work, rear coil spacer goes below coil ( sits on top of axle)
hardest part was removing rear coil isolators without damaging them.

The spacer goes on top of the coil.

I have their spacers as well. All spacers go on TOP of the coils.

I had a harder time with passenger side. The piece that bolts to the pinch seam is most of the problem. It was all wonky and bent. The other problem is the thin, weak metal of the Jeep's sub frame does not like the self tapping bolts.

I had a lot if issues with mine too - the passenger side was worse than the driver side for me too....... Crazy! I spent a lot of time with them and talking with JCR to get it resolved.

You should post your comments on the sliders here for others:

That's funny at 9AM this morning I had 2 different people at Rusty's tell me that it goes on the bottom and gave advise on how to remove the lower coil isolator without damaging it. Must have changed the setup since you did yours.

Don't ever flex it. If you do, be careful when your rear spring falls out.

What holds the coils on? The bottom spring perch isn't tall enough to go through a 2" spacer and up into the spring....

I'm not saying anyone is right or wrong, that's just what i was told by Rusty's and Fatbob's is the same. Here's the FB install:
