Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

also, do they come in the beige (or "Light Frost") color so it will match my non-black interior?

The color you see there is pretty much what they look like at night...a white "ish" color, just bright enough to illuminate the "JEEP".


And that the only color choice they come in. I guess you could change the color if you wanted...but that would require an LED change.

Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

I've never done any soldering so I'm not sure if I should try this. Any tips or advice? What exactly do I need to solder the wires? Soldering iron, solder and maybe some heat shrink wrap?

Those pictures were from my old 2014 Limited when it was like a month old...but I have the same exact set-up in my new 2014 Overland as well.

As for keeping the "Jeep" emblem on the mat so clean...running the slush mats during the Winter, and hanging my feet out the door and knocking them together before bringing them in the cab helps too.

I also go into the habit of when driving automatic vehicles, my left leg is bent 90 degrees up against the seat. Not only does it help keep you in the seat during "aggressive" driving, it keeps your left foot off the "Jeep" emblem on the mat!

It is not necessary to cut and resolder the wires back together.

You can use the 3m scotch lock, T-taps or Posi-taps to get power wire taps make installation so much faster.

I can't understand why they didn't come up with some type of plug and play solution.

They could of done it on the right (passenger) foot well light since the wire plugs into the light housing that would have been a great spot to add plug in adapter.


As for changing the color of the logo you could just change the led.

But since the logo illumination is done by an LED shining light into some bunched up fiber optic I thinks that is what makes the lights weak when you change the color.

I am thinking about adding an LED Dome light panel behind the "Jeep" logo to see if it improves the lights output.

Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

The only issue I have with these lighted sill plates is they have the potential to get scratched easy. My old Limited got a good scratch on the passenger side from my wife one day.

Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

Just installed my sill plates today. What a pain in the ass. Jeep really should have come up with a plug and play solution. Unplugging the footwell lamp and snapping in an adapter would have been much easier.

The plates look good, but it was not easy to install IMO.
