Default Just did rockers and cab-extension panels. Can give advice.

As the title says, I just finished doing the rockers and cab-extensions on my 97, 2-door, extended cab Ram. Ran into alot of shit. Had some good moments, and some bad. But it was a learning experience! Ended up with a good job.
Point is, if anyone is going to do this on their truck, I have some experience, and may be able to help. I am NOT a pro! Just a guy that reads and learns. I'd be happy to share what I learned with anyone that is interested.

Default Rot Box Ram

My 01 extended cab could really use a new set of rockers as well as many other body panels but i'm not sure if the truck is really worth it, I use it only as a bad weather/work truck/plow truck so I was just wondering how much it ran you and how bad of a job it really was, I did rocker repairs on a ZJ grand cherokee that I had and it wasnt terrible but deff not easy.

Hey LT. When I did mine there was about 10 pounds of sand behind the driver's side rocker.

When I finished up I coated them all the way across front to back with paintable bed liner, and then I painted the truck.
