OK, this is a noob question, i know, but a lot of the things I'm interested in putting on my Jeep require that you drill into the body. Others like these corners, then seem to create a place for water, salt, mud etc. to be held against the body. Doesn't this create a place for body rot to start way earlier than it would otherwise? I know that for you guys who live in the desert (Cali, AZ, Utah, etc.) that this probably isn't a problem, but NH is one of the world's largest consumers of mag chloride and I don't want my Jeep to rot away prematurely. Am I worrying unnecessarily? :confused:

not at all.

When I installed a set of rocker protection on my old CJ in Maryland I ran a bead of silicon around the entire edge before I installed them to keep the water out along with making sure to paint all freshly drilled holes.

I plan on doing the same for anything I do to my JK

I use clear silicon on every hole I drill. It only take a second or two extra.
