To people that have used sliders...whats the thoughts on how long they should be?

All of these pictures show the sliders ending right at the fender arch. I can get some scrap steel which is not long enough to go from fender to fender, its about 6 inches too short on each end. I would imagine coming off a rock, those would be the 6 inches that get bashed first, but then again most rock damage I see is on the rocker panels/doors.

So how bad would it be to leave those small areas unguarded? Keep in mind its only 6 inches...if I have enough speed coming off the rock I will have moved forward enough to crash onto the slider...:-)
