Don't know if I'd take that thing off road (or on road for that matter) you'll hit a bump, bottom falls out and you'll be dragging your a$$. Then you have to let the rash air out (a picture we can perhaps do without) and the scabs, whooooofff.

Rocker panel rot is as common as tires on GM's.
The good news is that usually the floor pan is still solid even when there's nothing for the weather stripping to seal against at the bottom of the doors. That was the case with my suburban anyway. I never washed it in the 5 years I owned it and it was a rust bucket from day one. Still had a rock solid panel edge at the point where the rocker used to be affixed.
Even so, I'd love to get a little rig like that (free) and make it into a trail buggy. You have the short wheel base, a decent twin C channel frame and all the wiring ready to go. Yank the body off and build a cage, modify the suspension and put a 205 in it and some new axles with tires, and you'd be ready to run the rocks.Syncrowave 250DX
