Anyone try the Sill Guards or Pedal Covers?

I've been thinking about buying the OEM sill guards that say "Grand Cherokee" on them to protect the painted area from getting scuffed up. They also make a lighted version.

And the stainless steel pedal covers look pretty cool too.

Anybody got them? Pics?

Thanks!

I put on the pedal covers, look just like the pic, took about 15 mins to install. I would recommend following the instructions concerning running hot water on them to loosen up the rubber, the break pedal was the hardest to install and took the most time as you need to slip it over the exiting rubber pedal. The gas pedal is a replacement for the existing rubber cover so it installs in no time.

I've got both and love both of them. I would highly recommend these particular sill guards from eBay as the rear guard as longer and IMHO, looks much better and protects more of the entry.

The brake pedal removes and is replaced. The accelerator pedal goes over the stock pedal. I think this is so because I got the bright pedals and I have the left over brake pedal. Dealer installed.

Here are a few pics of the guards, pedal kit with Husky weathguard mats.

Expect about 20 to 30 minutes on break pedal. Take your time, use 2 small screw drivers to inch the pedal cover around the pedal.

I have the same sill gurads and they are a life saver! After looking at them I can see where I have saved my paint from scuffs. The back ones are worthless, wish they were mad bigger but can't have everything! Enjoy.

The ones on eBay are about 2.5" longer.

Here is a quick picture of the longer rear sill guards that are currently for sale on Ebay as part of a 4-piece set.

We went with the pedals and love 'em. As to sill guards, we just use the same clear film that's used for bras. Works great and is invisible.

Wk 2013 Grand Cherokee - Door Sill Guards ?

I just bought a (black) GC - and am thinking of putting some door sill guards on. How easy are the Mopar stainless steel ones (#2118) to align ok & apply yourself - or do I need the dealer to do ?.

I see some threads are suggesting there are black plastic ones also available that might be better. Any thoughts ? (& where from online). Tks guys.
