Door Sill Guards - New Style Rear Doors?

Has anyone seen these rear door sill guards? They look like the standard front ones, but the rears are around 2" longer than the standard "stubby" WK2 rear guards. The ad states they are the newest style and fit 2011+ w/o a problem, but I just worry about the rears being too long. I do like the styling better on these rear ones, as well as the idea of better coverage back there.

+1 they look much better and more functional than the stubbies.

Re: Door Sill Guards - New Style Rear Doors?

I saw those on Ebay and liked them as well, especially compared to the stubby ones on my Jeep now. I did email them to see if you could get just the rears and they said they are only available as a complete set. Haven't decided if it's worth getting them just for the rears or not.

I agree. The rears look better than the ones I have now.

Are these a Mopar accessory?

Re: Door Sill Guards - New Style Rear Doors?

I am not sure...the auction is kind of vague. In one of the pictures it appears there is a Mopar p/n sticker on the back. There were originally 14 sets for sale and now only 1 remains...price jumped up from $69.99 to $690.99, so I have no idea what is going on! My set should be here this weekend and I will post up my thoughts and some actual pictures.

Re: Door Sill Guards - New Style Rear Doors?

Here is a picture of the rear guards. For now they are just set on the door sill as I am waiting on it to warm up before I install them. It looks like the seller got some more of these on eBay and they are back to $69. I am not sure if they are authentic Mopar or not...if not, they look like an excellent reproduction of the OEM ones and I definitely like the rear design much better.

Those look much better than the initial ones and look like they're a true Mopar product. I recall older door sills for other Chryco products having the grooves in the rear if memory recalls correctly. Damn, now I have to go buy door sills, Gee thanks

Re: Door Sill Guards - New Style Rear Doors?

I just installed my Mopar fronts today, but am waiting on the rears until I learn more about these. Even these plates could be a bit longer, but the stubby factory rears are just plain ridiculous.
I couldn't find these on ebay today, but if anyone finds more specific info on them, or discovers who the manufacturer is, please let us know. Thanks.

Re: Door Sill Guards - New Style Rear Doors?

Here is the link...I got them 2 days after ordering. One thing to note, these came with no instructions or alcohol pads, but they are packed very well in bags, bubble wrap and a cardboard box.
