I was assuming thats what it was because it looks to lift the tub off of the frame and I didnt see it on any other install picks. You can see what I'm talking about in the first picture of the bushing.

Its entirely possible I'm wrong. I really know next to nothing about anything underneath a car body - this whole thing has been a learning experience.
Alright, turns out that google was my friend on this one. I guess thats just a stock body mount.

So, dont need bolts, but am still no closer to figuring this out because Im coming up massive short on bolt length.

Sccrbrg this is my best guess as far as install goes.

but im not sure if the bolt will reach in far enough.
Attachment 159899

is there a safety factor here or is it good to go as long as it catches and tightes down?

Sccrbrg Just realized the PO put in a body lift

Didn't realize that when I bought it from the dealership.

Now I really have no idea how to install these, I'm guess I might need a longer bolt?

Any help would be appreciated

Sccrbrg but seeing as this is how it looks without the bushing im assuming you use the bushing in the install. that just seems like it would lead to a less than solid mount.

ACE Rock Slider Install Help

I know that there are several threads about these, some with install help. But so far I havent been able to find an answer to my question.

Installing on an 06 Wrangler X.

First where do the spacer pieces that come in the box with the rails go?

And secondly, do these mount via the bolts that hold the tub to the frame? If so, mine have bushings between the bolts and the frame, do you leave the bushing inbetween the rails and the the frame when installed?

Looks like a quality product, I just wish they came with/provided some kind of instructions. Not even available on their website.
