What To Expect
Quick Covers are plastic slip-on rocker and cab corner covers that return your truck to its original appearance for thousands less than traditional rust repair! Our installation process involves removing and treating the corroded area to help prevent and slow down rust. Quick Covers slide over the original factory rocker and cab corner. They are attached with automotive grade double sided 3M tape and pop rivets.
Made of tough ABS plastic, Quick Covers are the only slip on rust panels that offer complete coverage. The low profile design makes the seam nearly invisible because it is tucked right into the factory body line. No welding required.
This kit is a two peice design meaning the rockers and cab corners are serpate covers.
Quick Covers are available in two surface types;(select from drop down above)
- Smooth- Smooth Quick Covers must be painted before installation to ensure UV protection. The smooth covers are ready to be cleaned, primed, and painted right out of the box. (*some surfaces are pre-sanded as a courtesy*)
- Textured- The black textured finish resembles a spray on bed-liner. The textured covers have UV protective coating and are ready to install right out of the box.
What to Expect
- Left and Right Slip On Rocker Panel + Cab Corner Covers (4 covers total)
- 3M Adhesive Tape
- Prep pads
- Detailed Installation Instructions
Quick Covers offer the most coverage of any other slip-on products on the market. The cab corner section covers from from the top body line of the cab corner to the lower pinch weld of the rocker and wraps a few inches around the back of the cab corner. The rocker section covers from the upper pinch weld to the lower pinch weld and from the back of the cab corner to the front fender.

Our Marketing Team Hates Us
Quick Covers panels fit so well, you can’t even tell they’re on. It’s difficult to show this in marketing pictures—most customers can’t believe it’s the same truck. The painted panels look like metal, and fit almost seamlessly onto the truck. Even the textured covers look like they might be a factory option. 11 years of experimentation has led to this day.
At Shaffer’s Auto Body (the place where the idea of Quick Covers was born), our special power was performing top notch auto body repair with amazing customer service. We were one of the only shops willing to accept rust work. Our name spread far and wide as people came to get their rusty trucks fixed. But we hated it.
We love automobiles. It’s our passion. But pulling somebody's prized truck apart to fix a small part of it hurt us. At that time, there was no better option. Those who could afford it, shelled out thousands of dollars and left behind their vehicles for many days in the shop. We had to turn a lot of customers away.
There had to be a better way. We tinkered with experiments, each one better than the last but still not good enough. First came slip-on steel covers, then we started hand-forming custom covers out of stainless steel (so they would last longer before rusting again).
That was a phenomenal development, but it still wasn’t an affordable option for most truck owners.
Why Not Steel?
We considered dozens of materials, and then narrowed it down and tested 5 for rigidity, impact resistance, and quality of final finish. The ABS plastic was the clear winner in all these tests. Now, instead of hand-forming stainless steel panels we could use a state-of-the-art manufacturing process which brought the cost of production down immensely. Now we could provide all car owners with this amazing advancement—easy to install, affordable, and custom-fit to each vehicle. Part of us wanted to keep this amazing product for ourselves. But a larger part of us wanted to share this phenomenal development with automobile lovers all across the United States. We separated the product from the body shop, started a new LLC, and quickly built up a solid customer base.
Made in the USA 🇺🇸
When we started out, we had zero experience in plastic thermoforming - which is the manufacturing process we use to make our covers. We can’t share too much without giving away trade secrets, but what we can tell you is that making a product that looks and fits perfectly turned out to be an order of magnitude more difficult than we thought it would be. The engineering process and manufacturing process is something we failed at multiple times. We tried outsourcing several different times with different people , and spent tens of thousands of dollars. It was all for naught. The results were basically the same poor quality products that were already on the market. If we wanted to make a superior product, we learned the hard way, we’d have to make it ourselves.
Today, we design, engineer, and manufacture all our products in-house, right here in the USA.
So the last truck that I did, it was no way I would even be financially possible to repair the rust. Quick covers offered away two give a great appearance to this truck. Financially, it’s just a good way repair these older rusty trucks.
Fits as it should.
2011 F-150 FX4 cut out all the rust installed the only hard part was drilling for the rivets went through a few drill bits other than that the product worked as promised thank you
Definitely not a true "fix", but on an aging truck, if they buy a few more years of life, fantastic. Certainly beats looking at rusted out cab corners and rust stains on the running boards (from the rusted out rocker panels).
Installer told me that it was a perfect fit.
