Body Mount Removal

I'm trying to get the rubber pads for my body mounts out and I'm having some issues doing it . It doesn't seem like I can get the body far enough off of the frame to get the metal parts out that run through the centre of the rubber.

Judge me if you must but I need them out to cut them off to mount my Smittybilt XRC sliders. I trust everyone on here but at the same time I like to form my own opinion on things so I'm going to see how Smittybilt works out for me. According to the instructions I need to cut 3/16" off of the rubber to mount them and can't get them out.

I feel like I would be able to cut them while still on there and lifted/spaced out from the frame but it would be easier if I could get them off. Thanks guys for any advice.

I had this same problem when I was doing it but I also had to small of a jack and it was maxed out just short of what I needed. I just wrestled the shit out of them and they came off. Try loosening the mount towards the rear of the Jeep as well.
