Thanks! They seem to fit nice and provide a lot of coverage.

Update. Now that I have the boat home and I am parking the truck outside I might not be happy with the stick on pads anymore. I have been seeing water getting in the sill under the door in the rain. It appears the treads on the protectors are creating a tread pattern in my drivers door outer weather seal, and allowing moisture in. Not sure yet, but I might be trying Warpsters version off Amazon. Is that link still pointing to the right product Warpster? Nothing is perfect I guess. Be nice if GM would have just taken care of this issue from the get go. We should not be searching for ways to protect such a high wear area that is just painted.

Yes, at least that is the part number I ordered. Like I said before you can not trust their photos, they are not the listed product. Refer back to page 3 of this thread for my photos, they are accurate for that part number. Sorry I can't comment on whether these cause issues with water getting in as I garage it day and night so it only sees rain while I'm driving in it.

I installed the Auto Ventshade #88407 2 piece door sill protectors (from Amazon - $24.92) on my extended cab. They're 30.5"L X 3.5"W and I trimmed them to fit beneath the weatherstripping. They're not long enough to reach the rear seats as shown in the second photo, but since I don't plan to carry passengers back there, it's not a problem for me. After trimming, I added an additional strip of 3M double-sided tape. I'm really pleased with the appearance and added protection for the paint.

Question Door sill plates

Anyone figured out anything for protecting the door sill area from the scratches that are sure to come?

Any issues with water intrusion?

Yes they are the Husky weather beaters. I like them. Good coverage. Easy to clean. I use a damp cloth and just wipe them off. You don't even have to remove the mat to do so. I recommend them.

I decided to do the same thing. XPEL markets some "Universal Door Sill Guard" in various widths, but I couldn't find anyone who sells it locally, so I just phoned around to some local shops that install the 3M/XPEL film on new cars & bought some in bulk & applied it myself.

I bought 12" of the 24" wide stuff for $20.00 & I found that the best width for me was 2.5" wide for each sill. It's not to hard to apply, but I would suggest buying a little extra in case you mess one up learning the install procedure.

I would post a photo, but it's basically invisible when applied.

They gave me about 13" & I had enough for 1 extra, but didn't need it, but you could apply it to other area prone to scratch's or stone chips. I notice the factory uses some of this clear film inside the tailgate & box to protect it where the tailgate cable would rub. They didn't stick it down very well on my truck & it looks like crap now because it collected dirt on the edges where it wasn't stuck good (white truck, easily noticeable).

Here are a few link that might help.

I like the idea of wrapping down over the edge to protect it. I did some checking and Autozone lists a set of these for the 2015 Canyon crew cab for $39.99 and they are the AVS ones. The part number is 91155.

I think i'm going to plasti-dip my door sill. That should offer enough protection imo.

That part number looks to be for a Dodge Ram....better double check before ordering! On StylinTrucks I just did a search for a Canyon and they came up with that number but right at the top of the listing it says "This product does not fit your 2015 GMC Canyon SLT 6 Cyl 3.6L" so I'm confused.

On Autozone's web site it says the 91155 will fit the Canyon. Now I do have the 2015 Canyon as the truck selected under "my vehicle" on the site. Warpster, you are right on the ram if you look up the fit list for 91155. Mine should be in today so I will check them out and get back on here with the results. I will have to go to the dealer to try them since my truck is not being built till 5/11. What's the worst thing that would happen - we'd have to trim them. We'd have to do that with the one's in the beginning of this post anyway.

Just curious how you would plasti dip something like that. When I masked the emblems off with painters tape, it peeled the plasti dip off as well (in this case it's what I wanted to happen anyways) but on the door I would want an even square.

Instead of the plasti dip what if you tried the spray bed liner that comes in a can....you can mask off the area as you wish to have covered and of course the interior and exterior areas to avoid over spray. I used this on my lawn tractor where my feet would rest so I had some traction and it worked out great. Just another thought possibly.

Skip the 91155 option.....not even close. I cut up a set of them, and they really didn't look that good installed. I removed, and will do something else.
