Last week I purchased JcrOffroad's stage 2 rock sliders. The fit and finish of these are great. Lined right up very tight to the body!
They got broke in saturday at Wa****a offroad park in Missouri! They held up great with a couple hard rock hits. I actually was trying to find rocks to test them on which proved a challenge due to how close to the body they mount and how the extremely low amount of ground clearance you loose with them (1/4" maybe)
They took about 3 hours to initially install then a few more to paint and re-install. I highly recommend using an impact driver of some sort for the nut-sert installation. It made the install much easier and faster.
Heres how they showed up:
Heres a few install pics:

I would Definitely recommend these sliders to anyone wanting great looking, very strong, high clearance, and reasonably priced sliders! Another great JcrOffroad product added to my jeep
Typically these kits (JCR, Poison Spyder,Genright, etc.) have gaskets and/or you can buy rubber gaskets for in-between the body and the plate. I don't think that would keep all of the water out anyways - you could alway coat the body/gasket/protection in grease before slapping it on or even silicone the top.
Personally, I plan on getting the Poison Spyder body protection and rock sliders this spring to match my bumpers. Oh, and flares...
