What the heck do these do?

On my Jk body mounts, on either side of the mount bolt, two little nuts and what look like studs. Can I lose these? Working on a design for rock sliders that mount to the body mounts, and these seem to be in way.

Do those hold on a heat shield or something what's on the other side?

Nothing, far as I can tell. Flat heads of some kind.

Is there a disc on the other side? They appear to be connected to the rubber holding it down. I think you need them.

I think they hold the body mount to the frame.the large bolt and safety washer hold the body to the mount.

Thanks for all the replies! Went a different route with my design...the bolts stay.

I helped a buddy remove his tube sliders and they were attached using those studs. They are pressed in from the top b/c there would be no way to hold them in place once the sliders was installed.
