No. My dad just had both rockers replaced on his screw the body shop charged $900 a side. Funny thing is his truck is rust free. For some reason the rockers just rusted right off. I just bought a screw too a while back from Florida and it totally rust free. First thing I did is have the same body shop under coat from the inside on the rockers before the Michigan winter gets to them. Good luck

I have repaired the drivers side... wanting to do the passenger side soon. I took off the runnig board and used a 4 inch cut off wheel to cut the rocker panel bottom off. Cut 1/2 inch below the door, and then along the frame weld. YOu end up cutting out a piece about 3 inches wide from the front all the way to the back. The piece is almost flat and crud sets inside untill it rots out. After this piece is gone you can wire brush, clean and paint the bottom of the sill plate and vertical plate to the frame. I had a rotted area at the front of the sill plate about 4 inches wide and 16 inches long. Cut that out and wire feed in a new sheet metal plate, clean, putty, and paint.... The bottom rocker plate that was cut off , do not replace. I welded 3-4 small plates about 3 x 3 inches from the outer edge under the door lip, back to the frame area to help support the sill plate. YOu can not see the missing rocker panel afterward, It is mostly horizontal under the door out of site. Probably spent 6 hours on that one side.

After cleaning everything up inside the rocker and under the sill plate, you still have plenty of rust,, but no "scale or chunks".. I did paint a rust converter on that and let it turn hard and black, then put rustoleum red oxide primer over that, then painted black.
