Default Door Sill Plates

I am looking for rubber door sill plates (mats) for the rear doors, just like the ones on the front doors. I do not particularly care for the stainless steel, aluminum, or billet styles that are offered by after-market. Anyone with information or ideas, please E-mail me. Roosterscruiser1@aol.com

I have also been looking for these but, so far, no luck. Checked with DC/Mopar and they indicated they don't make them. Seems sort of strange to me since they're losing money to the "after-market" parts people.

Isn't there any way of buying extra front door rubber mats and trimming them to fit the rear doors...just a thought. The fronts are 18" long and you only need about 15" for the rear doors but they should be able to be cut down to size and then 3M adhesive or some other type of glue should hold them down.

Actually you can buy a set of the MOPAR front door sill protectors (they are plastic), cut the connectors off the bottom and grind them down smooth with a dremel and put them on the rear with 3M trim adhesive tape. By turning them around they will fit without trimming although some folks have trimmed them down several inches.

This is an easy mod! Just cut off 3" of the "square" end of the sill covers and remove the mounting tabs by cutting, sawing, etc.
Apply strips of molding tape along the edges.
Clean surfaces with Isopropyl alcohol before applying the tape.
What you need is:
(1) SF34DX9-AA Cover, Sill $8.35 (dealer)
(1) SF35DX9-AA Cover, Sill $8.35 (dealer)
(1) 5 foot roll 3M double sided molding tape $3.99 (auto parts store)
And see this guide at PT Do It Yourself.net http://www.ptdoityourself.net/ptrdspadguide.html
I just did this mod for a friend this week so these are the current prices from a local dealer, no shipping charges.
I did this mod to our PT 10 months ago and no problems.

I did it and it came out great. I used a hand grinder for taking care of the tabs and a miter to cut the little bit off the ends straight. It nowlooks like is should have from the factory and my passengers wont slip on the sill like they did! It took me about a half hour of casual work!

Thanks for the pictures MichealDay. I used tin snips to cut all the posts off except for the center one which I used a hack saw to hack off. I then went over, with the hack saw blade, pulling up the remained of the other post. I also used the tin snips to cut off and shape the large end. Used 320 grit paper to ruff up where the tape holds. Thanks again. I also had to pay $8.35 each down in south Florida. Next mod: Compass light: cutting and heat shinking the orange wire.
