Replacement Rockers

My truck is starting to rust on the rockers. I want to find some top quality replacements, so I don't have to do this again. Had a guy trying to order some for me, but they back ordered them for months and then apparently forgot me. Who makes some good rockers for a '93 Dodge? Searching the web isn't getting results.

Re: Replacement Rockers

Have you checked JCWhitney? I bought some replacement floor pans from them a couple years ago and just got around to installing them a couple weeks ago. They fit good. Fortunately, my rockers were in excelent shape, but the floor rusted through before I bought the truck in 1990. It's been parked a while and I just got around to doing the floor.

Re: Replacement Rockers

Will, JCW had crossed my mind, but I'm not sure what level of quality to expect from them. I want to do this properly, once, and want to stay away from low quality parts. Were your pans the same guage as original? It's good to hear they fit OK.

There's a can of Herculiner ready to coat the whole lower third of the body sides after I weld in new rockers. Hopefully, that will protect it from rust for a good while.

Anyone heard of Keystone body parts? Know where I can get 'em?

Re: Replacement Rockers

They were either the same gage or a little thicker. They were also galvanized. Here's a shot of the finished fitment before wire brushing the rust, priming and painting. I have some other pictures of the finished project and the beginning but they are too big to post and I don't have software on my computer at the moment to resize them. I can email them to you if you want.

Re: Replacement Rockers

'78 W100 (or 150, I don't know which). I'm the second owner and have had it since 85k miles/1990. I'm fixing it up to use to haul my CJ around. This winter I'm going to fix the sheetmetal and paint it. Then take the A/C out of the CJ (minus the compressor) and install it in the Dodge with another compressor. I'm thinking about swapping in a pair of 3/4 ton axles that my father-in-law offered to me. They have 4.10 gears so that would mean I'd need to get an overdrive trans.
