1999-2007 Chevy Silverado Rocker Panel – What to Consider When Buying
Most of our customers repair the rocker panels of their 1999-2007 Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra trucks once and find that the repair lasts them the rest of the truck’s useful life. The best way to ensure you don’t need to revisit your repairs in a few years is to start with high-quality rocker panels that meet or exceed OEM quality in terms of steel gauge and grade. At Raybuck, we only carry high-quality parts that are designed to fit perfectly on your 1999-2007 Chevy Silverado or 1999-2007 GMC Sierra pickup. Whether you need 1999 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, 2000 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, 2001 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, 2002 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, 2003 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, 2004 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, 2005 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, or 2006 Chevy Silverado rocker panels, we have all of them in stock.
Our manufacturers used advanced techniques and manufacturing processes involving a 3D scan of an original part to create the perfect fitment for all of our replacement parts. That means you’ll have no trouble fitting them into place and finishing them for a solid and clean repair.
When selecting any part for your pickup, please make sure that you are selecting the correct cab style: Standard/Regular Cab has two doors and no rear seating area, Extended Cab has two rear suicide doors that open towards the bed of the truck and do not have exterior door handles, Crew Cab has four full doors that all open up toward the front of the truck. It’s important to get the right rocker panels for your truck’s cab style. For example, extended cab rocker panels won’t fit a regular cab pickup truck and vice-versa.
Slip-On vs. Welded Steel Rocker Panels for Your Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra
You have two options when ordering 1999-2007 Chevy Silverado or 1999-2007 GMC Seirra replacement rocker panels: slip-on or welded. As the names suggest, the major difference is the way in which they are attached. In general, slip-on rocker panels are best when you’re only looking to replace a portion of your rocker panels and you want to avoid welding. You simply trim away the rusted parts and cut your slip-on rocker panels to fit and then glue, rivet or screw them into place. While the repair may be more noticeable than with fully-welded rocker panels, the slip-on solution is faster and can be done without welding.
If you want a more discrete finish, welded rockers are the way to go. You cut away your old rockers and fully weld the replacement panels into place. If you’re handy with a welder and want to help your truck hold its value, the welded rocker panel option is your best choice.
Still not sure which solution is best for repairing the rusted rocker panels of your 1999-2007 Silverado or Sierra? Contact one of our sales reps and we’d be glad to share our experience and help you choose the right replacement rocker panels for your year and model of Sierra or Silverado.
