|RubiconOp||I would say do it when it's 72 degrees, humidity of 83%, and you need a minimum 12-15 mph crosswind to facilitate the application of the previously mentioned guards...... I would also stand on one leg and hum "God bless America.....|

|Wrangler_53||Any recommended temperature to be able to install the entry guards? Refraining from installing because I want to make sure they stick for good when I put them on. Or will they stick fine on a warm 40 degree winter day?|
|01-15-2015 06:22 PM|
A little late on this one but I put the Mopars on front and back and ended up taking the back ones off because they caused dust to leak past the seal.
Love the fronts though.

|BareBones13||I'm the moonet vs mopar guy. So far I've had them on for a couple heavy rains and no leakage (knock on wood). Maybe the doors are slightly harder to close, but not enough to really notice.|

I didn't get a huge response when I asked the same question, but I'm leaning toward trying them. It's certainly possible that the Mopar entry guards (or similar aftermarket versions) could cause a breach in your door seal, but there are plenty of people who use them without issue. I've read many comments that say entry guards should be standard equipment from the factory, so I would imagine they only cause problems if you're unlucky. Perhaps it has something to do with door alignment, as well -- if you have problems with water after installing the entry guards, maybe adjusting your doors will fix the issue (door adjustment seems to be a good place to start with leaks anywhere around the door).

These entry guards are a must have on every JK! I am in my 5th JK and it's the first thing I buy for them.
I am with the OP: they should come from the factory.
FYI: you will always find Mopar accessories cheaper on eBay than at Quadratec or 4WD/4WP. I really like their low prices (and the professional, hassle-free experience) on third-party parts and accessories, but when it comes to Mopar, they are always more expensive. I suspect they do not get the price breaks authorized Jeep dealers do.

This stream has a number of positive comments related to the door sills. I recently purchased a set for my 2015 Wrangler; however, I have not installed them yet. I have read other information about them possibly causing water leaks around the bottom of the door. So I have been searching more information about them prior to installation. Anyone experience issues with water leakage or door rubber seal damage after installation?

|Scott2373||I like how they match the side steps perfectly! Those were the very first "mod" I did on my Jeep. I picked up the pair from eBay for a little over $20 directly from a dealer. The door sills, just looked "naked" to me and prone to damage leading to rust, so I knew I would have to have these. Not to mention the additional protection they'll provide.|

I am going with the mopar covers and adding the clear film to the fender flares and side panel of the rocker for the wife...she is vertically challenged

I have a wrangler 4dr unlimited.. i purchased the mopar sill covers and like the looks of them, but was disappointed that they didnt extend over the edge.. i am a shorter person and hit my feet constantly on the sill which is causing wear.. i have to get my brother to constantly touch up the paint. If anyone knows of door sills that extend, or even rocker guards that extend up higher, please let me know.

FYI You can get the mopar ones delivered from ebay for $37.50. I recieved mine last week.

Oddly though, the ones from Mopar (...or Highrock-cant recall) for the JKU rear appear to extend a bit further down. Granted these are smaller than the front.
...and Hello to everyone as this is my first post
|01-01-2012 03:20 PM|
I have the Mopar ones in the '07' and that Jeep has been abused. They have held up exceptionally well without any issues, so I put the, in my '12.

|PA ARCTIC||i have the mopar ones ready to install. once the weather warms up.|
|01-01-2012 11:40 AM|
Wait.... Looking at my pic closely.
There might be room.
Gotta see if anybody has these with the stock rails
Edit -- nope
I see Mopar black touch up paint In my future
|01-01-2012 11:38 AM|
Won't work with the stock rock rails
But... Looks like its possible to be done-without the door shut being an issue.
I don't even use the sill. Step over it

|New2012JEEP||I think they make black window (Home) pieces, same material that are 90 degree angled, that you can install and cut yourself that would work. I may look into this actually. I know my friend put a really heavy clear sticker around his keyholes, wonder if they would make the same thing for that area.|
|01-01-2012 10:29 AM|
I would need something that wraps around
the outer sill. If its possible with the door shut.
I had them on my Tj
|01-01-2012 10:13 AM|
Strider I installed the same ones yesterday, they are sharp.
Kjeeper, with door shut you don't see them at all, they barely cover the lip toward the car interior, and don't extend maybe an 1/8 inch on the horizontal side, toward the exterior. So, if you can see it with the door shut, the Mopar ones won't help you.
|01-01-2012 10:03 AM|
Can someone who has these take a pic with the door shut?
Reason why I am asking, I have some wear that extends out on the lip of the door. Can't tell by manufacture pics if they would cover or not.
Edit: was able to zoom in on the pics.
Answer is nope

I'll definitely keep these in mind if mine go bad on me.
|01-01-2012 09:45 AM|
they look good....have to add them to my quadratech wish list.

|jmb6420||I installed the Rugged Ridge entry guards in black powder coat because they were metal and not plastic. I figured with all the crap I put my jeep through, the plastic probably wouldn't hold up.|

Door sill guards
While on one hand it might seem silly that door sill protection wasn't included with our JK Wranglers even though the door sills are painted sheet metal, they're in a high wear area, and it's a Jeep expected to see higher than average levels of both dirt and wear...it can also be argued that one is also free to install black or silver ones, or come up with their own solution or even none as desired.
-a Jeep thing perhaps.
Personally, I'm in QC for a living so it drove me nuts.
These seem to be among the smaller "creature comfort/utility" mods I'm doing since I've settled into a usage pattern with my Jeep.
I asked Santa for the Mopar kit in black, and because of my unerring goodness he was unable to refuse.
(Quadratec's site is down at the moment but I'll post the link to the product page when I can.)
Failing that, just copy and paste
MOPAR® Door Sill Kit in Black Plastic with Jeep® Logo For 07-12 Jeep®
or a derivative into a Google search and you'll find retailers with that kit.
Here are a couple of photos I took:

Driver side rear
Has anyone else installed door sill guards? What kind if so?
