JCR stage 2 sliders......bolt them or weld them?


New member
i find welding it scary in case you need to remove it for some reason or another, such as adding long arms or suspension stuff.

If you have stiffeners, weld them. I had them bolted originally, and they came off when I put the rock krawler 3-link and TNT stiffners on. I cut them up to move the forward arm back so that it wouldn't interfere with the 3-link mount. Also, because the stiffners moved them outboard 3/16", i had to cut off the pinchseam mount and move it in 3/16". Just keep that in mind since you now have stiffners on.

Weld em on. You should be able to cut them off faster than unbolting if you have to remove them for some reason.

I bolted mine, and stiched any spot that would be easily accessible with a grinder... I have stiffeners and long arms already, so hopefully those suckers wont ever need to come off! But, if they do, it wouldn't be a big deal
