Rocker panel is the term used to describe the area of the vehicle body between the wheels and below the doors. The term has its origins in horse-drawn coach building. This area of the body is exposed to damage from stones and other debris, so vehicle manufacturers traditionally installed protective panels to shield the area from impact. These panels were usually bright chrome or polished stainless steel, to create design detail and visual interest.

However, as styling trends changed and chrome fell out of favor, bright rocker panel moldings began to disappear. Today some vehicles have black plastic protective rocker panel moldings and some come from the factory with a textured coating in the rocker panel area. But if your vehicle has neither or you’re not satisfied with the OEM rocker panel shielding solution, we have the bright panels that will deliver unmatched style and protection.

There’s no question that unprotected rocker panels are a bad idea. The constant onslaught of stones, gravel, and other debris can chip and scratch the paint, exposing bare metal. This not only makes for an unsightly vehicle, if left unattended contact with water and road salt will cause the metal to rust, possibly even resulting in panel perforation. This is the reason why the rocker panels are usually one of the first areas on a vehicle to rust out. Our rocker panels will not only protect the sheet metal behind them and prevent this kind of damage, their gleam will also give your car or truck a whole new look.

Chrome or polished stainless steel rocker panel moldings are a great addition to your car or truck if installed alone, but they’re even better as part of a complete bright finish vehicle makeover. Like much of the chrome accessories we have for other parts of your vehicle, most of our rocker panel moldings are made of mirror polished 304 stainless steel, which is selected for its strength and high chromium content that makes it highly resistant to corrosion. Some moldings are made from chrome plated TPO plastic, a durable combination of impact, heat, and chemical resistant plastic and UV and chip resistant chrome.

Regardless of the type of material, you can count on your rocker panel moldings to provide many years of great looking, durable protection. Each panel is custom made for the vehicle application, assuring precise fit and style that will perfectly complement your vehicle. And installation couldn’t be simpler. There are no holes to drill or fasteners to tighten, so you can leave your tools in the tool box. All of our rocker panel moldings are attached to the vehicle with 3M acrylic foam tape, an adhesive so strong and reliable, it’s used by the vehicle manufacturers to install trim at the factory.

    One of the more eye-catching tricks automobile manufacturers have used to differentiate higher-priced luxury versions of a car model from value-priced versions of it has been to vary the amount of chrome trim on the vehicle. Base model cars and trucks (also known as "strippers" or "entry level") have little if any chrome while luxury and top-of-the-line ones have the most chrome. In years past, plain Jane cars were simply painted in all areas instead of being chromed. In more recent decades, the low-cost replacement of choice has become black plastic. This makes base models easier than ever to spot because the eye catches hard on black plastic. Completely missing is the pleasing chrome finish on grilles, door trim, mirror assemblies, light bezels, and other areas. Base models end up looking more like fleet vehicles or work trucks than anything prestigious, especially to people who aren't automotive enthusiasts.
