The lady who answers calls at Raybucks suggests the weld-ons for durability.

according to their catalog, the cost for the slip-ons versus the weld-ins are only about $13. Heck, for that price I would go for the weld-ons and have a more durable rocker panel. Just my $.02 worth

i have the weld ons, but they were install right when i got it. i was amazed at how nice they looked, and how durable they seem. in fact they seem to be thicker the originals. they are worth the money

Did you cut the old ones out or weld them over the old ones?? Just curious.

they were just cut out, because the old ones were very smashed and rusted so they came out easy with the cut off tool
