Can I use my factory step bars to jack up my X. If I use my front bumper, the suspension sags and the wheels are still on the ground when the jack maxes out. Can I use the step bars? If not, it looks like I'll have to get some sliders from CRL to use as a jack point.

I personally wouldn't after seeing them pretzel on many a trail run.

Yeah. They're only mounted to the body, and felt pretty spongy when I was jumping on 'em (probably not a good idea, being 230 and all... :)) If you do, do it slowly.
