I just realized it looks like Archie has 2 different rocker panels.

One is the integrated kit


and one on his wide body kit


Thought I would post here first before calling him as I am not quite ready to pull the trigger on anything. Can anyone confirm if he has just updated his rockers or are they 2 different ones.

Anyone just have the ones from the wide body on their car?

I do believe they are 2 seperate things. The regular rockers taper back into the molding line, while I believe the widebody version doesn't have the taper so it will match up to the 3" wider hips that are added onto the rear quarter.

the bottom picture is the wide body.. the top pic is just the side skirts.. had a set of them, they look great but they can be a pain to install. and no they haven't been changed or updated.... IRM made them back in the day and no he has them. the top pic is what you get with just the rockers.

The bottom picture is a widebody kit, as said above. It includes fenders, rockers, door extension, quarter panels and more. You are looking for the first option, unless you a planning on replacing almost the whole body of your car.

It's all on his webpage - v8archie.com

The old style - the ones on top - are $475.00.

The newer wide body - the bottom one - is $1,950.00 for the basic kit or $2250.00 with the optional front fenders.

A few people have scored the older styles used as there's a good handful of them out there. I'm sure Archie has sold plenty of the widebody too, but not too sure you're going to find anyone off-loading that used....

Thanks guys. I get all of that stuff. I was just unsure if there were different styles and if the wise body one had ever been put on by itself. Which sounds like there are and the wide body wouldn't work . I plan to get the wide body at some point.

They don't interchange, if that's what you are asking.

You can't get get regular archie rockers and add the wide body to it later. They are completely independent.

Thanks. I just want sure if those were old shots on his site or if they were different parts. Now it is just a decision to build my engine or get more body parts. I just got the chin and trunk lip spoiler and have smoked markers on the way. But I also have the engine. Now that the interior is almost done time to move onto phase 2 ..decision time...
