The existing rocker panels on our 1999 Chevy Silverado were pretty well rusted out and we were looking for a solution that was cheaper than replacing the metal; so we took a chance and ordered these covers. We ordered the textured black because we were originally not going to paint them, but our 16 year old son wasn’t too fond of the black part coming up over the cab corners (I think OAM should consider making some that just barely come up on the cab corners for those who don’t have super rusted corners) so we ended up painting them ourselves. You can buy color-matching spray paint for most GM vehicles at any of the auto parts stores. We were able to put the covers on ourselves at home with minimal trouble. Most importantly, the covers look great and you can’t really tell they are on there unless you get up close to the vehicle and even then they don’t look bad; even with us painting over the textured surface. I would recommend these covers for anyone just looking to cover the rust on their vehicle. We did also purchase the rocker panel brackets and installation kit from OAM. We don’t know how long our at home paint job will last but the covers look and fit well.
they look really good painted.The body shop wants to see them after they are on the truck,he said if they look good,he will reccomend them to other customers.
Totally worth the price...amazing product...
Perfect fit, instruction were great help.
