Chrome Window Sill

Does anyone know how much it would cost me to upgrade from black window sills to chrome window strips. I am pretty sure i would need to replace the 2 back windows since they are one piece. But i need to know how much it would cost for the 4 door windows and the 2 back windows.

Re: Chrome Window Sill

the front 4 you cna get in chrome. The back 2 you will need to replace. The labor cost me $250ish. Shop quoted me $150 per window($300) but i got em down to 250. 5 year warranty.

Now, there is another option. the window sills chrome covers. $100ish? for all 6 pieces. I would go that route, much cheaper and it looks like exact replacements.

Re: Chrome Window Sill

IIRC name is --Jeepwk1

You can remove it after its on BUT you will bend the strip pulling it off and will look like crap if want to re-install. Take your time and another set of hands will def help.


i helped him install the covers. just like any other cover, peel off the 3m tape on back and apply. The rear trim wasnt as exact as the OEM glass but you wont even notice it after it's on. We compared it side by side to mine and from a foot or so you cant even tell the difference.
