    I was just outside grinding my rockers so I could POR them, when I hit a soft spot. Sure enough, a hole about 2" long and 1/2" wide made it's way on my rocker. Time to panic. the rest of the rocker is sound. can I just get a patch welded onto it?.. I really don't wanna use any body filler, and I see no reason to replace the entire thing. suggestions?

    If its rotted there, it's probably rotted all over inside of it. Nature of the design, gotta love them engineers /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    do the www.off-road.com full rocker replacement/beef install. If you know how to weld, its a cheap upgrade and the final result will be a hell of a lot more stout than any factory or aftermarket rocker panel...
