Wj rocker plastic trim

after all the snow has melted and the salt has done its damage here in michigan my rockers are left nice and rusty..again. ive been half @$$'n them myself every couple months but im sick of it. not looking for a permanent fix (unless someone knows of a cheap easy one?), im just looking to cover em up. so i was thinking, the plastic trim off the laredos..i only want the super thin piece that goes along the very bottom, not the piece that covers part of the door. anyone know where i could get these?

The first picture- Is this the area you are talking about? if so see the second picture 1 can of bedliner and 1 hour (5 light coats or so) and it may lose its dark black hue but if you scrub it with some good cleaner after it gets dirty it'll clean right up.

Covering it up doesn't stop it from rusting! The only way to really fix is to cut the panel out and replace sheet metal. You could make some really cool boat-sides sliders though.

[edit] since it has perforated, it's too late for POR-15. It'll just rust away from the inside and you'll be left with a shell of POR-15.

Well I should say we are fortunate in one aspect, and unfortunate in another: there's nowhere to go wheeling! Those darn Californians can go to Moab for free anytime

Cover it with Laredo style rocker trim. I can not even see my rockers, I think they are OK!

I was thinking about covering to hide my problem but I don't believe I have all of the metal required underneath to hold the plastic trim cover in place. My picture is what just touching up will do over time. My father in law, who lived in the salt belt, "touched up" each season. When I picked up his WJ from him for beach duty it wasn't this bad. In less than a year in the southern humidity, I was left with what you see below. Pieces have been falling off for months now.
