The rocker panels on your truck take a beating, from daily use and from the elements. Rocker panels are some of the most vital components of a truck’s body and we want our rocker panels to remain in solid, rust-free shape throughout ownership. Unfortunately, rocker panels are also some of the more vulnerable parts of a vehicle. Rusted out rocker panels can expose your vehicles frame rails, which can accelerate rust in this area.
Rocker panel replacements come in two styles, slip-on and full rocker panels. There are pros and cons to both and choosing the right panel for your needs and capabilities is important if you are going to take on the job of replacing them yourself.
