Any idea?

what kind of rocker guards these are? Like the brand name. I bought the jeep with them on and they are pretty rusted out. So I was just going to see if I could find the same ones instead of redoing them since these would cost alot to be lookin perfect again

Are they still sound enough for media blasting?

You might be better off replacing them. JCR is my recommendation.

Are you planning to replace them for aesthetic reasons or because the structural integrity of the rocker guards has been compromised?

Have them sand blasted then powder coated. Dont put bondo on them, its softer than metal which we all know is softer than a rock, see where im headed here?

Because it's not just surface rust. Some spots it got deep so it would need some fill in
