Review & Install Video

Construction. These rocker side panel guards from Rugged Ridge are made from UV treated thermoplastic to give your TJ the protection it needs from off-road brush. The UV treatment will keep the black diamond plate finish looking new even after your summer excursions.

Protection. These guards protect your Jeep's rocker sides from damage on and off the trails while the diamond plate adds a rougher and tougher feel to your rig. Use these guards as a preventative measure, or to cover up existing damage.

Accessories. This kit includes the double sided adhesive and hardware needed for installation.

Application. Removal of the OE fender flare extensions is required. Install this kit with simple hand tools and consult the guide from Rugged Ridge to make installation even simpler. These guards bolt onto 1997 - 2006 TJ Wranglers, and are secured with the double sided adhesive.

Fitment: 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 Details

What is the height of the rocker panels. I will need to cover some rust areas on the doors and want to make sure that this product is tall enough to do that.

  • The Rugged Ridge Rocker Side Panel Pair are 3.5" tall.

Several questions. Will this product work on my Jeep YJ as well as the TJ? Does the rocker guard turn under the bottom of the Jeep (i.e. 90 degree bend in bottom of panel)? What is the exposed width of the rocker guard? What is the thickness?

Kevster

  • Unfortunately, due to minor changes in the body style and flares, the Rugged Ridge Rocker Side Panel Pair Diamond Textured Black Plastic (97-06 Wrangler TJ) would not fit properly on the YJ. This product does not protect the under side portion and only protects your side panel. Unfortunately Rugged Ridge does not disclose the exact measurements of this product.

    Great addition to my TJ

    Once again Rugged Ridge has blown me away. This low priced item has really added curb appeal to my rig. Fitment is very good and installing is very easy with everything lining up perfectly. I am highly recommending this product especially if like mine your Wrangler has holes punched for front fender extensions that are no longer present. They magically disappeared in less than 45 minutes.

    SIde Panel Rocker COver

    Plastic parts, easy to install, but tape not the entire length so water, dirt, salt can get in between the body and these. Replacement from ones that were install a few years ago that had somehow snapped off on one side.

    Really just for looks

    This product really is just for aesthetic purposes. It MAY add some form of protection, but be aware that this IS plastic. It's a great fit, great look, only thing you want to do is go buy more adhesive so mud and grime do not get in between the jeep and side panels. Little expensive for two pieces of plastic, but then again, what on a jeep is cheep. A jeep does stand for Just Empty Every Pocket.

    Rocker side panel

    Installation is easy unless you have the factory rock guard extensions that run along the bottom of the front fender underneath the Wrangler logo. You must remove the 3 bolts that hold it on...and they are a little difficult to get to. Once you install the rocker side panel, you'll need to drill holes to be able to reattach the factory rock guard extensions. If you don't have the factory rock guard extensions and want it to look like the picture above, then installation is very simple...just peel and stick tape and 3 screws.

    Easy Upgrade

    This is a simple way to enhance the look of your wrangler, while protecting the rocker panels. These install with 3M adhesive strips, and in only about 20 minutes!

    Looks good

    Look good but the double sided tape is very thick, causing a gap between the molding and body. Wish the tape was the length of the molding, instead it's only a few small pieces.

    Rocker side panels

    I got these for my wife's TJ it is in 04 we have aftermarket fender flares on there. These Rock sliders are like they were cut too short there was a crease in one of them when I received them after they are installed doesn't look very good I will be saving up more money to replace them with something better.

    It was decent

    The product is okay. If you have aftermarket bumpers they might be kind of aggravating to put on, but they look pretty good once they're in there

    Rocker Side Panels

    Loved them for a little while. They broke off fairy quick on both sides. Very disappointed. I was looking to replace them as the first time I received them as a gift purchased from your company. No way are they worth the price. 71.99 each ! I wouldn't even pay that for the pair. SMH

    GOOD LOOKING ADDITION!

    EASY INSTALL, VERY NICE LOOKING, FIT WAS PERFECT, BUT AS YOUR OWN VIDEO SAYS PROTECTION IS MINIMAL BECAUSE THEY ARE ONLY PLASTIC. BANG FOR YOUR BUCK WAS ONLY 4 STARS BECAUSE, ALTHOUGH, THEY INCLUDE THE CLIPS FOR THE SIX MOUNTING SCREWS BUT THEY DON'T GIVE YOU ANY SCREWS. HAD TO COME UP WITH THOSE MYSELF. I ALSO FEEL THAT THE 3M TAPE SHOULD GO ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE TOP INSTEAD OF EVERY SIX INCHES. WATER CAN POSSIBLY GET TRAPPED BEHIND IT.
