The body mounts are too soft and flex on hard hits. The tub will move as much as 1/4" or more on compression of the mounts on a hard hit. The tub sheet metal is very thin. Combine the effects of the soft mounts and thin metal, and you've got bad body damage with hard hits.
I've had to repair both sides of my tub from running tub/bolted to body mount sliders.
For anyone who has the potential to take a hard hit to a slider, they need to avoid anything with a tub mount and anything that bolts to the body mounts.
Really, the only viable option for these jeepers is a weld on frame mount like EVO, VKS, etc.
I like JCR stuff, but there needs to be more competition for weld-on 1.75" or 2" DOM tube built sliders.
I used Poison Spyder body armor to cover the tub damage that I had fixed as good as possible, and then I built my own sliders out of 1.75" DOM tubing.
For guys who don't risk hard hits, this isn't necessary.
