Installing Rokmen Sliders-Tips Please

I am installing my Rokmen rock sliders this weekend. Need a few tips please:

1. I am removing the existing factory Rubicon rocker guards. What should I do, if anything, with the existing holes?

2. Somewhere way back I remember reading to "pre-tension" the sliders to the body. How is this done? Put a jack under the slider and lift the body slightly so the slider is tight as can be against the body?

3. Any other tips for a good install?

Thanks

Just make sure the sliders are snug when you mark for drilling or drill. Smooth out the rough edges of the freshly drilled hole and paint the bare metal. Spraying rattle can paint into it's cap and using a "Q tip" for applying the paint is my method.

Outside of that, just expect a bunch of different opinions.

For those who have fought for it, FREEDOM has a taste that the protected will never know."

Blind nuts/riv nuts for the bottom bolts instead of having a nut & shank through the floor?
