110 slider jack points

To follow on Ron's 110 slider thread, I had a related question for debate. I have seen 110 sliders with 2 jacking point (tunnel holes) on each side, and other that haven't. I have seen the same on 90 sliders. I also read somewhere, or on some slider company website, that the 90 can be jacked with a hi-lift on the side, but the 110 cannot (no reason given).

So, has anyone had 110 sliders with integrated jack points, and is there a REAL difference in jacking a 90 versus 110 on the side?

I'm of the mindset that more options is always preferred to less, so I would prefer jack points, but if there's a downside, I would like to know. (and yes, I have jacked vehicles from the side before with a hi-lift, and know the general challenges to it).

I've only seen a few 110's with sliders. I would build a custom set so that you have the accessories that you want. Putting a sealed hole in the sliders like the Mantec sliders on a 90 would be very helpful. It will give you a good jacking point for on road or off and it is pretty easy to recreate.

I have jack points on my 110 sliders and use them all the time with no ill effect. I like the fact that you can jack from anywhere around the truck.

Yeah having more options is always good, I am also hopeful that the tree nerfs on mine will be strong enough for sideways winching, there are just too many situations where I find I need to swing one end or the other around with zero chance of turning under power.
