The rocker is one of the hardest things to fix. The only way I can think of is to go to harbor freight and buy a stud welder. It plugs into a 110v outlet and welds a stud onto the metal so you can put the included slide hammer on it and bang it out. Then you take a grinder and cut the stud off and grind it back smooth. It works remarkably well, being a harbor freight tool, but it won't get it anywhere near perfect. I used one on one of my half doors because it wash banged up pretty good. The slide hammer that came with it is a piece of shit but the gun itself works good.

Edit: I just noticed the smaller picture and I don't think the stud welder would do you any good. That is way worse that I thought. The only way to fix it is to bring it to a body shop. They are going to cut the rocker off and weld a new one on.

Aww shit I didn't want to hear that but after looking at it, it looks to be the only way. Would it be possible to do it myself/with help? I mean it doesn't have to be pretty just needs to work

I honestly don't have a clue what all is involved in cutting the rocker loose. I've never seen it done. I imagine it isn't much more than just drilling out a bunch of spot welds but that's a lot easier said than done. I don't even know where you would buy a new rocker. The dealership could probably get one but they would charge an arm and a leg. What I think I would do, is go to a body shop and get a price on them doing the entire thing with and without painting it. If its an outrageous amount, then see if they can get you the rocker panel and maybe show you how to get the old one loose. Sometimes the guys are nice enough to walk you through the process but then sometimes they don't want you to know so that you have to get them to do it.

Ok cool. I'll check around and maybe YouTube some and see what's involved. Trucks going into the shop on the 10 for the first accident so maybe I'll get them to look at it then and see what they say. They also might realign my door since it's slightly off when I open it.

Most of my travels have been for work in West Feliciana lately, and then trips to NOLA to see the lady. Just finished Paramedic at LSU FETI last year, though. I was all over during that time.
