What Are These Called?

I don't know how to research these aluminum door-bottom guards: What are they called? Does anybody know who sells them? Do they keep rock chips off the bottoms of the compartment doors [behind the rear wheels]? Anybody have first-hand experience with them? Thanks! \ken

If you go to a truck accessory shop, they are usually called Rocker Panels. The ones I used in the past are stainless steel. In fact that is what I have always heard them called.

Yep. They're beautiful and still on my wish list. We talked to the guys from Summit at a rally and they seemed great to work with. I believe you can install the custom units yourself or have one of their authorized shops do it.

Summit Products

Check out Summit Products in Altoona, Iowa. They provide the stainless steel panels for the Aentegra a Cornerstone. They have a wide variety of styles to choose from. You can order kits from them which you can install or go to them and have them do the installation. They will also do some customization. For instance, they laser cut out our names for one of our panels. Check out post #927 on this page: Tell others about your modifications

I had some Summit stainless on my DSDP.

Summit is the best there is.

Many of iRV2 members have their stainless.
