there are different products out there that suppliers offer, but they go on pretty flush, so I wouldnt worry too much about it, if it does worry you, just line the sliders with an apoxy or soemthing before you stick it on.

Instructions seem lengthy. I am curious as well.

Holy dead thread, batman. The post you quotes was over a year old lol

But to be somewhat constructive...

I loosened all the body mount bolts when doing mine just to prevent over stressing anything. Made for an easy install. Oddly, the most difficult part was shortening up the body mount dampeners (or whatever they hell they are.) The best method I came up involved an angle grinder but damn, those things sure gummed up a lot while cutting/trimming them.

Also, they now include stainless hardware with them, so that's a plus.

I put these on a couple months ago. I did the install alone in a cramped garage with minimal knuckle bustin so it can be done. As far as how I did it for the most part i just did what the instructions suggested. But I do agree with the previous post, cutting those rubber body mount spacer thingys took a bit of patients. Personally I tried to b as precise as possible when following the measurements that came with the instructions (OCD) so I used a hack saw. Gave me a pretty straight cut in the end. In conclusion I like the sliders. Seem solid, powder coat is holding up and deff covers a vulnerable spot on my TJ
