  • Rocker panel damage

    So of course I procastinated and have yet to order my rocker panel protection and I'm sure everyone can guess what has happened. So my question is this: I have banged up both sides below the doors, and want to know if I can install rocker panels over the damage, or if I have to have the sides repaired/straightened before I do. I was thinking if I go with the 3/16th thick panels, they'd be strong enough to cover any dents. I'll post photos tomorrow so you can see what I'm talking about. Until then, any thoughts?

      Haven't decided yet. The a**hole who installed my lift was going to fab some for me, but decided he'd rather keep my money and not do it. But I digress. I was looking at spyder and warn, but hadn't got farther than that. I want beefy ones. I'm a bit hard on my panels.

            How about the new Rock-It Man rocker panels. I saw the prototypes at the Meet and Greet and they looked awesome. I wish I had them instead of my FXD guards.

                    It's not all about the photos. It's more "function over form" when it comes to protecting your body. But I think the prototypes look great!

                      In answer to your question of can i install over the damage. Ultimately it depends on how severe the damage is... However I was able to prime and repaint my scuffs and dents, then install the FXD guards.

                      Make sure you prime and paint the scratches before you install, it will do a lot to help keep the rust away. Last thing you want is a rocker guard holding moisture against bare sheet metal.

                        Yeah, I know I'll need to primer, etc before I install anything. My jeep's to young to be rusty.

                        Photos I'd like so I can see where on the jeep they come up to, and things like that. I know pretty don't help deflect rocks.

                            hold off, jeri for the rockit-man rockers. you will be glad you did.
                            these are the only rockers on the market that offer the complete coverage, and total structural backing that these do.
                            i'm sure pics will be up soon.
                            these rockers are going to have many following in their footsteps.

                              If you want buy a set of Rock-it man rockers and I'll trade you my warns

                              Honestly, I have not see the rockers but after talking with Chris and seeing his bumpers I would buy a set of his rockers in a heartbeat if I did not already have my warn rockers.
