Thread: rocker panel guards?

  1. #1

    Default Brian?

    i was looking into fabricating some sort of guard for the rocker panels today (i already smashed both of them in pretty good) and i noticed that the frame in which to weld the guard to is pretty far under the cab. too far to really have a strong enough support.

    has anyone made rock guards for their trucks? how did you mount them? pictures would be appreciated. thanks

    12" pipe is the right curve to weld on top.....

    thats a hell of a question, mine are rusted out at the corners. i would like to do what you are talking abought insted of fixing the sheatmetle since it would just get thrash again. what if you make a rolecage in the cab and tie the rocker guards onto the cage????

    well how about get some schedule 80 or so 12" pipe, or 12" tube. you could cut quite a few rocker covers. weld them on top the old and brace them under the cab.

    i was thinking of braceing them on the cab, (cutting out the old ones and putting the beefier steel in) but i dont want to tweak my cab up when i hit rocks off road, it doesnt seem that the cab itself would hold up to all that weight being forced upon it when beating it offroad. i would rather weld it to the frame and it would double as a step to get in, and if i stuck it out just a wee bit farther than the body it would protect the doors and such from all these trees in NH.

    if you make a cage it should tie onto the frame if done correctly, becoming part of the frame, you could put alittle extra beef around the rocker guards to be safe.
