Default Door sills

What has the group done to eliminate the scuff marks on the door sills. It seems no matter how you try you end up hitting the sill. While searching for trucks the used one have taken a beating and now since I have seen so many with the same issues I figured I would try avoid it. I went to a sign company and asked how much a 6x29" strip would be. I was told that a thicker stock would work be it has to be printed out black (I was told it was a white sheet to start with) let me know

Most aftermarket parts houses like Jegs, Summit, JcWhitney, etc, carry door sill protectors from universal to vehicle specific applications in different materials. I'll dig some up.

Stylintrucks carries a cheaper alternative for $38

I have seen some online though the only ones I have seen that completely cover are the chrome ones. I would prefer black.

As small as they are, powdercoating isn't all that expensive and it will last.

my '06 has a clear plastic strip on both sides from the factory
that seems to be indestructible

3m makes some sort of stuff you can put on different parts of the truck or whole truck that protects, like what Jsoko has. I have no idea what it's called, but a lot of (most of) newer trucks have it on critical points that see a lot of rocks and road dirt etc

my Truck has the same stuff about 6 inch wide on the rocker panels, you can't even tell it's there unless your down there looking for it

and yes 3M does make a protectant; whether or not this is a 3M product I don't know

also as Biker listed; those products are great and look good also
