Door Jam/Rocker Panel Issue

I have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler 4.0L
To get into the rear seat, you must enter through the passenger side. All of the in-and-out traffic has worn the paint off the Rocker Panel/Door Jam (see picture).

Does anybody have a solution to protect this area? Plastic Strip or anything? I have not found anything on any site yet for this. All suggestions will be helpful.

Ive got the same problem, but no solution. When I rhinolined my tub I stopped at the outer panel, but the inside of the door jamb is covered. Maybe some touch up paint would do the trick.

02 Sport with a bunch of stuff...

try some rubberized bumper paint. you can get it from the auto parts store. just tape off the area and paint it on. that should hold up to foot traffic.

Go to a hardware store or autoparts, they should have this clear tape that is thick and real strong that once applied you peel the paper off, touchup the area first then install tape when dry, sometimes if you have a heat gun, or hairdryer, you can heat the tape up to mold to pretty much anything you want. I have some at my work that I used to put on my Rockers, Aircraft grade stuff
