    Default Body mount rockers - rubber gasket really needed?

    When installing body mount rocker/sliders, is a rubber gasket between the rocker and body really needed? Or just mount them and run a bead of silicone around to prevent water and debris from getting between them.

    Poison Spyder sold a 'Slider Liner' preformed rubber gasket for the rockers, but they wanted $60 for them. They went out of buisness before I could afford to buy them. I just bit the bullet and spent the $75 for the stock body mounts and I need to get these things outta the garage and on the Jeep.

    I would just run a very thick bead of silicone around it before install about a half inch below the lip. Then after install, use a nozzle on the bottle and a straight edge to kind of grout it like the tiles in your bath tub. Tight and reinforced with more silicone
