Less than 300 miles on my new RT and already scuffs & marks are showing on the paint at the door sill due to lack of protection.
Is there anything you recommend? I've seen online many options, from MOPAR and aftermarket. Any word of advice?
Thanks in advance.

These come from China, but are the exact thing you get from Mopar, for over $100 less.

Here are some vinyl inserts if you want to do a specific color instead of polished.

They look pretty good, especially for the price.
Is that adhesive going to last? The MOPAR door sills on my Jeep I added had a wide continuous embedded adhesive strip on the bottom that was rock solid.

You can also add more 3M tape. I have had on my Challenger for over 4 years with no issues and I have 99,600+ miles. Cheers!

Had the Mopar ones on my '10. 4 1/2 years, 43k miles, and no issues.


May add these to my SP at some point. Paint still looks good, no scuffs, but if it gets looking shabby, on with the sill plates :)


Best of luck, and these are a nice "touch" to the Challengers

I like the Mopar style (have them on both of mine) - I like the edge that curves over the sill. It protects that edge as well as the top from scuffs, chips from shoe / boot heels and soles.

Not only a dress up item, but its functional as well.

I had the MOPAR ones on my '09 and ordered the Chinese ones for my '15. Exactly the same. I painted the letters on mine by hand but for $12 the inserts sound a lot better!

American Brothers makes a real nice one out of billet aluminum. You can chose your paint color for the wording. But yes they are pricy.

Agree, I'm a mountain and road biker so I'm constantly putting on biking shoes and these stills keeps me from scratching the car. Highly recommend them. I had the billet ones in my 2013 Redline but as mentioned the curves over the still gives it extra protection...

I had the same issue especially with my 4 year old getting in and out of the back. I'm not a fan of eBay stuff but I wanted something quick while I figured out a permanent solution. Now 1 year later I still have it on the car. The vinyl and cutout are coated in a matte/satin finish that resists scuffs.

Just a note, my car is pitch black, and I was hoping for a little of the challenger logo to show through but it's barely noticeable.

Not a big fan of calling them sill guards, as I'd be fairly annoyed if anyone was stepping on them getting into my car.
