A question about mounting rocker guards

I have a question about mounting rocker guards. I have seen where some company's use the body mounts on the bottom to mount their guards. If I used 1/4" plate do I need to trim 1/4" off the rubber mounts? I removed the factory running boards, but some of the bracket remains, I could tac weld the 6x4" angle to it instead, but I have not seen this done before. I plan on using 6- 5/16" SS screws and a 1/8" backing plate for the top mount.

My poison spider rockets required trimming of the body mounts for installation. So yes, you will want to cut them down.

My currie rocker guards do not require trimming. It does mount to the tub as well as the body mount

It is just going to be a preference thing. Keep in mind though, if you are using 0.25" plate, you will be adding that much to only 6 of the 10 mounts on the tub. The other 4 toward the rear will be torqued down with less rise in each mount. I don't know that a 0.25 difference will matter greatly, but the difference has to be felt somewhere in the span of the tub across the frame. The 11th mount at the front clip won't matter as much as the components are separated from the rest a bit. Probably more forgiving at that point.
