So I have a 2004 Gmc Sierra SLE that I use as a gravel bomber/work/farm truck. Lately all the rust on the bottom rockers has been getting worse and driving me nuts just looking at it. I really can't afford to just bring it into a body shop and get it all fixed up properly, and don't really see the worth it being a $5000 truck at best. 

Was browsing online one day about the problem and came across these great plastic rocker guard covers from Bushwacker. https://www.amazon.ca/Bushwacker-14068-Rocker-Chevrolet-Extended/dp/B01I4Y1L1K/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522179472&sr=8-3&keywords=bushwacker+trail+armor


Love these and it covers all the rust and lack of metal remaining Lol. 

Now I know its lipstick on a pig at this point but outta site outta mind. Wish up here in Canada they wouldn't salt the roads after every light dusting of snow so we could have nice things last longer.


Here are some before and afters.

That's interesting. I'm afraid that would simply accelerate things to get worse faster because stuff will just get trapped between the body and that.    Works for your scenario though.

Yah deffentily would want to install to truck when it was new or if your are still have rockers in great shape but want some protection as they can also be painted. At this point I think my damage is already done(and continue of course).I figured because I didn’t care really to fix the body on this truck, this would cover the nasty. I’m basically relying on the upper lip of the door jam where it’s mostly attached to stay intact as it and about 3 to 4 inches down are still in great shape. You are right though, might accelerate things but I’m hoping I won’t see it haha. See how it goes. But highly recommend for guys who want protection and have rockers intact.
