Question Anyone know any rocker armor that comes up really high on the body?

I've been considering getting rocker armor. My excuse is a dent I got from an accident in November. I figure why spend the $1,000 the insurance gave me on dent repair when I could just cover the dent with some armor.

However it looks like all the armor I see won't reach high enough to cover the whole dent. In fact it looks like it all stops right in the middle of where the dent would be, leaving a gap between the edge of the armor and the body.

So does anyone know of an armor manufacturer who makes a rocker armor which comes up a bit farther?

Here is a pic of my Jeeps damage. The dent is mainly right between the tape. In the 2nd pic, I just repaired the flare and buffed out the scratches but the dent still is there. I tried to pull it myself but there is a slight kink in it, so I wasn't able to.





I really like the PSC armor. Plus the price is really nice. Looks like it would stop mid-dent though.

That's a tough spot to get at with just rockers. I think you need fender coverage like metal cloak or Evo.
