    I'm sure someone has tackled this issue before. It an 04 Liberty in need of rocker replacement. I am in process of replacing the inner and outer rocker on drivers side but behind the rocker that kinda ties into the floor that piece is rotted out. Haven't seen any replacement for that. Is there a replacement or just fab some sheetmetal?
    Also I coated everything with Ospho any other suggestions for slowing the rust down?
    Thanks
    Harry

    Yeah, Massachusetts has been brutal on the Liberty, thanks for the link I have 03 I could never find the 04 one.
    I want to try the Eastwood's non hardening frame rail coating. The ospho is just to slow what rust is there down.
    Passengers side of the libby no where near as bad. Just outer rocker replacement.
    Thanks

    I would be interested to know how the frame rail coating work out.
    How long is dry time, and how thick it is.

    Harry, I really wonder now after looking at your gallery of the rust damage images, how did it get into the rear inner rockers so bad ?

    Suddenly I want an extra can of fluid film to spray the heck in and around the rockers and even more undercoating for further protection.

    Mine is as bad as yours or worse, I need to get it fixed this spring. But it works good and I love her and it's worth fixing.
