Rocker Panels from a donor Jeep

Hi there,my rocker panels on my GC 98 Laredo are rusted out,I have a line on a set from a scrapped GC Limited.These are near mint I guess,I'll know on the weekend.Would I be better off buying a set of outer rocker panels from ebay or getting my grinder with a few cutting wheels and cutting the existing whole rocker assembly out out?The top part of the rocker is good,it's just where the molding starts.Thanks

Don't be surprised if its alot uglier than expected once you start cutting. Maybe consider custom rocker panel with sliders instead?

Thanks,yeah the fact that they might be rotten inside has me a bit concerned,I might just go with a set of outer rocker panels.

Whatever you end up doing, you need to address the rust first. Cut it out and seal it. Otherwise it will just keep spreading.

If your gonna go through all the trouble to fix the rust I would just do some custom slider/ boat sides. They are pretty easy to tackle in a long weekend. If you want ideas look in either mine or technoheads builds as we have both done it.

Take pics as you go! I'd LOVE to see how you do the operation since I am in the same boat. You can rock star this thread with some pictures of the repair job!
