Rocker panel trim

I'm lookin for some chrome rocker panel trimming for my 79 cj 7. I don't want the deep set diamond plated material. Anyone know where I could find some?

Are you considering the factory rocker panels? I've seen a couple posters on here with sets available.

I've been wanting an original set for my CJ5.

I didn't realize the quality of those pictures would be so bad, but the hole I'm talkin about is on both sides of the jeep in line with the panel trim. Right in front of where the chrome trimming stops

That is the front hole for the stock trim. The stock trim goes from fender flare to fender flare.

Haha no worries, at least u tried. I've seen some others on google that have that same hole but I've also seen some with the trim that covers it and I'm just curious if anyone knows of somewhere to shop for different options

Interesting. I double checked and I don't have a hole there. So someone else might be able to chime in for you with that specific year.....

Here is a pic of the stock trim, though. (86)
You can see that the trim extends over that area.

It is for stock aluminum rocker trim. I have that same hole there from when I took off my trim.

That's what I thought, but I guess there is a little variation from 79 to 86. Go figure.

There's no variation for the amount of holes from 1976-86 CJ-7's All had five holes per side, four in the tub and one on the front fender. CJ-5's had four holes per side I believe but not sure.
