White Painted Rockers

I knew this would make a big difference on a white WK, and it's better than expected. Color-matched rockers are mandatory, especially on lighter-colored WK's.

Re: White Painted Rockers

Agreed, that's why I'm doing mine this summer. Did you do them yourself or take them some where to get painted? I saw someone once say they are hard to remove without breaking, do know if this is true?

Re: White Painted Rockers

I was hoping to have Daniel do them, but that didn't work out. The local shops wouldn't touch it.

I didn't remove them, I masked and painted on the Jeep. If you have access to the rivets and tool, removing them would save a bit of prep time, but I preferred to not remove them.

So when you masked them off and painted, did you get open the doors to get the tops of them? So when you are getting into the Jeep and look down you don't still see black? I'm assuming you took the front lip off though, right?
