Door Sill Protection pics

iTom found these, but I wanted to make sure everyone saw them. I was excited when he mentioned it in another thread, so I did it and took pics. These guys come in a pack of 2 for about $7.50 at Wal-Mart or elsewhere. I got two packs. You cut them in half exactly, and they will stick on the painted areas in the door sill area that is foolishly unprotected. I was amazed there was such a huge painted area that would take so much abuse that was not protected. I cut all 4 pcs in half for 8. I did 2 on each side in the front, and one each side in the back. Now I have 2 leftover. I think they look great, and all was done in 20 minutes and $15. THANKS AGAIN iTOM. That was going to drive me NUTS!
Tip. At Wal-Mart they are right by all the hitch and towing/RV stuff

It does looks good for protecting an area that is exposed to damage from shoes on most vehicles.

I spent the afternoon putting mine on. I'll get some pics up tomorrow. Great low cost protection.

I have them coming oh say...... on the 25th . Had to get something for Christmas right. I am excited, they look really nice. Be nice when I wade in the water to launch the boat, no wet carpet in the new truck. Anyone see if W.T. is making a rear mat for the crew cab??

Was at my Walmart, egads that section was a mess.
They've cut back on employees and hard as they work they can't keep up with idiots who pluck and toss the stock from the shelf. There are some very good people working there and they have always been helpful, cheerful and polite.
Didn't find them there yet, but I have another one or two Walmarts fairly close.
Sam would be ticked at the condition of the store and heads would roll if he was still around.

Wow thanks for the idea! I've only had my colly for a few weeks and I'm very meticulous and ocd about detailing and cleaning of my vehicle. I hate nothing more then seeing the door openings on vehicles worn to bare metal from peoples shoes and how "tacky" it looks, imo. I've seen new vehicles get that in jist 4-6 months of being new. Anyways I was thinking how big of a painted surface that area was and if there was going to be something available, and it is! And for alot cheaper then I expected. Thanks again for the awsome tip!

I picked my Colorado up yesterday and one of the first things I did was use this suggestion for the door sills. The local Walmart didn't have them, but I had found pretty much identical ones at Summit Racing. Followed your instructions and they look great. Thanks for the idea.

I'm glad I shared it and others think it's a good and practical idea. I was roaming a Walmart just because I felt I was bad that day and needed to be punished when I ran across a Reese drop hitch and lock for about 24.00. But when I saw these rubber pieces I was surprised the idea came in my head immediately. I put it in the spots front and back where I knew shoes would wear the sill. jdrphs went one step further by lining the whole bottom seal so it's obvious you can do it to suit to your taste. But a very cheap mod for all of us to protect the threshold. Next will be the aluminum pieces with Colorado or Canyon machined into them I'm sure for 139.99
