I don't completely understand control arm skids. I ran stock control arm mounts on the axles for a few years and crashed, slid, and beat on those lower axle mounts countless times. One mount bent a bit at some point. There were no problems.
Sure there is some small probability you will rip off a mount or something. But in my opinion unless you already have a full set of skid plates all around, evap relocation, rock sliders, good bumpers, etc. then there are much better uses of your money to increase the durability of your JK.
On a light use exploring vehicle that's not really your trail vehicle, seems like a complete waste of money and weight to me to put any skids on control arm mounts.
