Best Door Sill Protection

Would it be better to use something like XPel or 3M paint protection film on the door sills or that ebay kit (same as the MOPAR one except the rears are 2.5 inches longer). I don't think I really need door sill protection for myself. I don't carry passengers all that often and I'm pretty careful getting into and out of the car; however, I have a lab that rides with me a lot. Some of the times she jumps right into the seat but other times she jumps on the door sill as well.

Just wanting to find something to protect this against scratches from her dog claws.

Re: Best Door Sill Protection

I got some 3M 4" wide film on the Internet and applied it to the four sills. Virtually invisible and so far has been completely effective.

Re: Best Door Sill Protection

Not 100% convinced about doing it on our WK2, but on my Wrangler I used some spray-on bedliner to protect the sills from the scuffs of little feet (our kids). If done right and carefully, I'm certain it can look nice.

Re: Best Door Sill Protection

We purchased the ones on eBay w/ the longer rear pieces and they fit perfectly and look great. This is my wife's daily driver and the fronts appear to be doing their job from stopping scratches as she gets out of the vehicle for work w/ heels on.

Re: Best Door Sill Protection

Risko, were they the ones that ship from China? If so, any issues with extra taxes or charges entering the US?

Yes, those are the ones and no extra taxes or anything. When I ordered mine from the same seller, they actually shipped from California and arrived in a few days.

However, it looks like the rear design of those currently for sale are a bit different. Mine have 2 "channels" pressed into the center.

Those are pretty sharp and affordable! Much nicer than what I had planned to do with bedliner.

Don't order from China, it'll take longer than usual to get stateside because of the New Year.

There's a US based seller who has them for $80. I just ordered a set, thanks!

I haven't seen any other auction or seller with the longer rear guards. Can you please post a link?

Unsure if they have the long rear plates or not, but I will know for certain in a few days!

Re: Best Door Sill Protection

I did a quick image search on the part number in the auction I won and found this picture:


It appears that these have the 'short' rear sills.

Re: Best Door Sill Protection

I prefer the look with no sills, and letting the brilliant black paint show.

I just bought these today. Seems like the same seller that Risko used and that I posted earlier but these ship from Cali. They didnt have any with the rear ridges, just the smooth ones. They have ten other sets, here's the link.
