Rocker Panels for 1992-2012 Full-Size Ford Vans
Located between the front and rear wheel wells along the lower sides of your van, rocker panels are what you step over when you enter, exit or load and unload cargo from the side of your van. From an automotive engineering standpoint, rocker panels add rigidity to the overall structure of your van. But due to how low they’re located on your vehicle, they’re prone to a number of issues.
When you think of everything you drive over — from road salt to puddles — you can begin to imagine what types of debris and corrosive chemicals eat away at your rocker panels each day your van is on the road. In addition, it’s often a rocker panel that takes the salt and grime of winter roads or high curbstone. And once a rocker panel is damaged, it’s even more prone to rust.
The good news is that damaged, worn-out and rusted rocker panels can be replaced. And when you order from us, we’re here to ensure you get the right part at an affordable price.
How to Tell If Your 1992-2012 Ford Van’s Rocker Panels Need to Be Replaced
Some of the smartest money you can spend on keeping your Ford van structurally sound is on rocker panel replacement. Once you see signs of flaking and rust and/or holes or dents in your rocker panels, it’s most likely time to consider replacing them.
Another important point to remember is that the majority of issues with rust start on the inside of a panel. By the time rust is visible on the outside of a panel, the damage inside the panel is typically much worse. Note that old-fashioned fiberglass repair attempts do nothing for the integrity of your van — only a replacement rocker panel will restore your vehicle’s torsion strength.
Additionally, because of their location, rocker panels are typically some of the first auto body panels that need replacement. Whether it’s on the driver side, passenger side or one of the inner or outer cargo sides, replacing your 1992-2012 Ford van’s rocker panels is a smart move to protect your van over the long haul.
