Burb Rocker question?

It seems that everybody lists the front rockers for the suburbans the same as the trucks but the front passenger rocker doesnt fit the rear pillar correctly. I got the 3rd door rocker and it fits good but the front one sticks out way too far. Do I just have to make it fit or do they make the correct rocker?

Thanks in advance
George

Re: Burb Rocker question?

There is no correct rocker panel available for this application as far as I know. People generally modify a standard rocker to fit. I'm in that process now as well. Good luck with your truck!

Re: Burb Rocker question?

Not to mention most aftermarket sheet metal doesn't fit very well to begin with.

Re: Burb Rocker question?

Take a look at my suburban build thread in my signature. I think I took a lot of pictures of the modifications that you will have to do to install the truck rocker. It's pretty straight forward, just requires a little cutting.

Re: Burb Rocker question?

Thanks everybody for the replies. I can now see why the fit looks so bad. My pillar needed a lot of work and I must have cut too much away. The only good part was the cab support. Ill just have to make it work.

This is what I started with, a $500 find running and drivable.

Re: Burb Rocker question?

You should have kept the circled piece. I'm sure someone on here has a parts burb that you could get that off of (PM TKORENK).

Re: Burb Rocker question?

I'm not sure how much of a rush you are in, but in the next 2 - 3 weeks (weather permitting)I will be cutting the rustiest suburban I have ever seen. Its my parts truck. Strangely enough, that pillar , the rear hatch , and the roof are the only parts that didnt rust. If at that time, you havn't located what you need, PM me and I'll cut it off for you. Unless you have another way to get it, its free if you pay shipping. I have no idea the shipping cost though. I'm here in the Maryland/D.C. area. I'll be parting it not long after that. Tom Korinek (TKorinek) is parting one now.Lots of Arizonia sheetmetal.


John

P.S. I think the $500 for your truck was money well spent! Your pickup looks nice too!

Re: Burb Rocker question?

Thanks olblue and Hart Rod. It was so much fun cutting it apart I got a little carried away. I just got a spare tire well from Tom and am hoping to get his A pillers as well so I will check with him but if not I would appreciate yours John. This truck was preserved with expanding foam everywheres LOL. I dont want to get too carried away with pics as I am hoping to do a build thread soon but here is a drivers 1/4 I got for $200 going in. It sure saved me a lot of patches.
Hart Rod your build thread is what probably got me going on this one Congrats on your build and thanks for the help from it.

Re: Burb Rocker question?

I think the burb that Hart rod has just finished parting out has more metal than you are starting with! You Sir, must be a true burb lover

Re: Burb Rocker question?

I didnt lose my foot with the chainsaw but it sure looks that way LOL Yes my wife hates the burb cause it takes up 2 places in the garage now, the body and the chassis. The good news is the body went for paint last week. Gonna be blue and white

Tell her she has to drive the Suburban when it's done, because you are trading her car for a 72 shortbed and see what she cuts off?
