help!!!! bodylift and slider

on my 99 tj, i have a 1 1/4 body lift, my question is. how do i mount my smittybilt sliders. they tie into the last 2 side body mounts, the issue is that with the sliders mounted to the tub it sits in the middle of the body lift puck.

would it be safe to run 2 (1/2) pucks on each body mount instead of the 1 1/4 inch puck. the slider would be sandwiched in between the two 1/2 pucks

What I did, and I wish I had some pictures, is drilled out the pucks to accommodate the body mount metal bushing. Then put the pucks on top of the original body mounts rather than underneath (if I remember correctly). My jeep is 200 miles away so I'm doing this by memory.
I installed the sliders as the directions stated; with the slider pinched between the metal bushing and the puck.
I then picked up some, what I think was 1/2 inch tubing, and cut small pieces to make up the space between the metal mount bushing and the stock mounts.
Without this tubing, the mounts cannot be properly torqued without squashing them down to nothing.
Hope this makes some sense. When I get home I'll snap some pictures.

I have a 1" bl and the smittybilt sliders and I had to trim 3/16 off the rear two body mounts. This made those two mounts 1" with the sliders. Then I sandwitched the sliders between the big curved body mount washer that fits inside the body and the body mount. That tucks the sliders up tight. So mine is stacked body, curved washer, sliders, body mounts, frame. Hope this helps.
