Rocker Cover?

My truck is rusting on the bottom on the extended cab portion both sides. I plan on repairing the rust. I thought about painting the bottom portion the length of the truck up to the first body line with some sort of black truck bed liner paint. My truck is black. Its a shame because the rest of the paint on the truck is in great condition.

My other option is what I have a question on. I've seen trucks with some sort of prefabbed metal plate that runs between the back of the front fender and front of the rear fender. Does anybody know what those are called? Does anybody know where I could find some that fit a 1997 F250 extended cab? No I'm not going to just cover up the rust I still plan on fixing it, but then I won't have to worry about an expert paint job needing done.

Thanks for any help,
Fordtruckthing

I had a set on my 94 half ton they were called SS rocker panels you can get them to come to the first body line or get them where they bend and come to the second body line I had the ones that came to the first and loved them I thought the other were just to much

Something like these? They just stick on. Look pretty good on certain trucks IMO. I think i paid like $130 or so for these. This was my old truck that i no longer own BTW. Obvious from the "for sale" sign. Haha.

im not a big fan of those... they will still get moisture behind it and rust...i have seen this first hand....

why not just spray it with something like this: DIY Spray on Liner Pics

Those covers are what I'm talking about, but I'm also agreeing with the suggestion of moisture being trapped behind them. Probably going to do the diy spray on liner looks like great stuff. Thanks for the suggestion!
