Rock slider question

Any idea what these holes in my sliders are for?
There are actually 4 holes on each side. The two larger external and 2 more smaller diameter flush ones.
All of them have cross holes for retainer pins.

hi-lift mounts so you can jack the truck up from that point

It must take an attachment for the high lift then.
Does anyone have info on what it takes?

They don't really look like high lift jack points.. At least thats not how I'd design a high lift jack point into a slider. maybe some sort of crazy exo-cage-awesome-rollbar-garbage idea a previous owner had?

Jim, high lift made a tube-like piece that slips onto the jack for .. jacking. part JA500.

It would also work with the ratcheting screw jacks like this one:

Pedro knows because when he is wheeling his trucks real hard he has used his hi lift multiple times to jack them up and replace wheels or extend above obstacles, or remove issues whilst he is on the trail wheeling.

I disagree that those are normal hi lift points. They are too large in diameter, stick out too far, have a funky notch, and have holes drilled for a pin.

They may be for a custom hi lift mount, but it would appear they are for some random attachment.

Agree on the 2 outer ones. But the smaller 2 holes look to be perfect be for a Hi-lift mount.

Maybe a removable tree slider attachment for the larger 2? Or an Exo cage attachment like Revtor said.

My guess is the outer holes are for tube fenders, similar to the ones you se in Australia, and the inners are for the hi-lift.

The sticking out ones with pin slot are for a side bar brush/tree fender guard. I'm looking for a picture of Dennis White's truck as he had them.
If anyone recalls the white 90 with its rear wheel lifted by a forklift, you'll see what I mean. The other end of the bar connected to an ARB.
