Got some Doorsill Guards and Weathertech Liners today

I was going to buy the aluminum "Grand Cherokee" Doorsill Guards, but thought it might be to much bling for my taste. So I found these black "Xpel" Doorsill guards online, I wound up buying them from Amazon for just $16.48. You get just enough to do all four doors. These are very similar to the ones that came on my old F-150 so I thought I'd give them a try. They also come in clear, but the clear is much thinner material. The black ones are very thick heavy duty stuff, and black matches my GC. This is a stick on product so the question is how long will it stick? Guess I'll find out. As you can see I also got my Weathertech Liners today.

STIX is just really nice
Re: Got some Doorsill Guards and Weathertech Liners today

I think it looks nice. I too was concerned about the mopar sgs being too much JGC all over the place. Looks like this is a nice alternative. Any concerns on longer term removal or did you just leave them on your Ford?

That's looks like a great alternative to the aluminum "Grand Cherokee" Doorsill Guards. I'd thought about installing those, but this looks more subtle and effective to me. I may go the same route. Thanks for posting this.
[Edit] For comparison, here's a link to Moosehead's pics of the Mopar aliminum ones: Illuminated Jeep logo Door Sill Guard

They were OEM factory installed on the Ford and were still on (and looking like new) six years later when I traded it in on the GC. I'm not trying to say these are as good as the OEM's on the Ford I just thought for the cost I'd give them a try. On the Xpel website they have instructions on how to remove, looks pretty simple, just peel at the proper angle to keep from leaving sticky residue.

Re: Got some Doorsill Guards and Weathertech Liners today

Looks very nice....I was going this route but I'm disappointed with the Floorliners I got for my Audi, ie. the foot extensions were too short.
I'm impressed with what I'm seeing for the GC.....glad to see they have corrected things.

Re: Got some Doorsill Guards and Weathertech Liners today

Thought I'd post an update on these Doorsill Guards. I see that already the edges are starting to lift a little. I did install these to a warm vehicle in a heated garage. It has been very cold here since I installed them but if they had a quality adhesive they should not be starting to peel already. So I would say these deserve a "NOT RECOMMENDED" rating.
