JLT Performance is who has them. But remember its sponge and sponge absorbs water. So don't know if being up against the paint could cause paint problems over time if not taken out and checked periodically to make sure they are dry.

I know what the plugs do .... but is the only reason to get them is to keep rocks off the plastic ? To me its not a big deal to wipe that area clean every so often Or can the rocks come through the opening and hit your paint ???
Curious minds are wandering !!

I think there purpose is to keep little stones and dirt from building up in the little cavity between the rocker plastic and the fender. I have them on my car and they work great for keeping debris out of the cavity.
I have always wondered why that gap was there in the first place and I read somewhere it is actually there to help with aerodynamic performance at high speeds. I don't know if its true, but it at least sounds good because otherwise why would you leave that gap there to fill up with debris?
