Any new ideas on slider mods?
Talked to LOD about it a couple times, at first they said I was screwed. Then the more we talked, they came to the conclusion that if I weld on the other two locations, then I could attach the back however I needed to, since it wouldn’t need to be structural. So I may go that route. I don’t have any plans to take them off, and if I break one, ( not likely) I can just cut it off fix and weld back on. But still looking into it, I’ll have a better idea when we put the new rear control arm brackets on.

That makes sense. I can see their point if welded. I was wondering if you could add long plate across existing two mounting points and still utilize bolt on by adding additional bolts through frame. But agree with you, utilize as is and see if issue arises after. :like:

IMO - 35s will not look proportional on Rubicon with 3.5”. To be honest not sure 35s fit 2.5” lifts on Rubis. Mainly because high line fenders. Sports/Sahara’s look good with 2.5 and okay with 3.5 but because fenders are 1.5-2” lower. Everything I read is once you step over the 2.5 line and go taller you start looking at additional geometry mods. I’m just stating what I’ve read on here.
IMHO, my rubi doesn't look too "off" with 35's & a d.5" spacer lift....

Agree Jeff. Steel bumpers also gives that little extra weight. Looks good man :like:
