The rocker panels are the area of the body on the side of the vehicle between the wheel wells and below the doors. Because they’re located so low on the body and out of the average line of sight, they’re an often neglected part. But if you’re interested in doing something with this area of your vehicle you’ve come to the right place. We can supply you with all your needs whether you want to replace your rocker panels, protect them from damage or dress them up.

With their close proximity to the road, rocker panels are exposed to damage from stones and gravel. On some vehicles, rocker panel drainage is less than ideal and moisture can accumulate after rain and snow storms. Couple this with road salt and it becomes an invitation for the rust bug. This kind of damage is prevalent on classic and muscle cars, so we carry top grade replacement rocker panels that will make your car look and function like new.

Of course, rocker panel damage isn’t a problem that’s exclusive to classic cars, it can also affect a daily driver, especially one driven regularly through the winter on salt encrusted roads in northern climes. Your family hauler may not be a classic, but it’s just as important to you, so for vehicles like yours we carry rocker panels from suppliers that specialize in offering original equipment quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality parts that you’d get at the dealer (that is, providing the dealer has the part) without the dealer price.

Off-roading and 4-wheeling, crawling over rocks and other obstacles, can really be tough on rocker panels. Impacts here can cause major damage, possibly even affecting the way doors open and close. To protect these vulnerable areas we carry rocker guards from the top off-road equipment suppliers. These rugged tubes, in durable aluminum or steel, extend from wheel well to wheel well to protect your off-roader’s exposed flanks. Once you’re equipped with a set of these rocker guards, you’ll be ready to take on the toughest terrain.

To brighten things up, we carry rocker panel moldings for all popular cars and trucks. Most are made from high grade stainless steel, which has high chromium content for resistance to corrosion. This stainless can be precision formed, to perfectly fit the contours of your vehicle, then these moldings are polished to a mirror-like luster that’s virtually indistinguishable from chrome. They’re attached to the vehicle with 3M™ acrylic foam tape. This adhesive is super strong and so effective it’s used by the automobile manufacturers to attach trim at the factory.

Guides & Articles

  • Auto Body Parts
    Since the demise of built-in running boards after World War II, auto manufacturers have been using rocker panel moldings to dress up a vehicle area that would otherwise be plain-looking and nondescript. Technically, a rocker panel is the section of a vehicle’s body below the doors and between the front and rear wheel wells. For decades, stainless steel molding strips were installed over rocker panels for styling purposes and to protect the body from stones and debris. Typically, a value-priced base model would have no rocker panel moldings at all, a higher-trim level would feature a slim molding strip just below the doors, and the most expensive version of a car would be equipped with wide rocker molding sets that extended further up onto the doors.
  • Auto Body Parts
    A rocker panel is a stamped steel piece that is an integral part of your car's body structure. Rocker panels are located along the sides of the vehicle between front and rear wheel well openings, just below the doors. In fact, you lift your feet over them every time you enter and exit your vehicle. Aside from roof supports, they are the only part of the frame connecting the front and rear of your vehicle. In this article, we'll discuss the role of rocker panels on your car, why they are more subject to corrosion, and best options for replacement rocker panels if that time has come.

1st Generation Camaro Rocker Moldings
I've built three Camaros in the last two years and replaced the lower rocker trim each time. The first two I used other makers product, but this time I bought the AMD units from CARiD. These went on without deforming like the others as they clip into place. I also noticed that the parts are stronger where the exposed sheet metal screw anchors the molding.
