Hi guys. Stupid question...if I'm adding stock-like SS rocker guards to my CJ5 do I need anything behind it like the gaskets they sell at Quadratec to prevent rust, etc.? Many thanks.

Sorry to be posting only questions...but I don't know any answers yet! :chug:

That's one of the many rust prone areas on a CJ, as to whether or not Quadratecs gaskets actually prevent any rust.
I cannot say, as that information is above my pay-grade.:rolleyes:
 
Most people use them to cover up body damage and rust, so no gasket needed.:laugh:
But if you don't want to damage to the paint underneith than you should use something so it doesn't scratch the paint.:D

you can buy a few things that will help, I have see all kinds of rubberized pad used. I personally go and get a ruberized shelf pad like you put in cabinets, some have adhesive backs so you can make sure it stays in place during installation.
 
I mounted my rocker guards up against the body. Then I used silicon seal along the top to keep water out. I didn't use any on the bottom so water could get out if it ever did manage to get in.
