Update, after a message from Quicksilver I thought I'd add a bit to this thread. The weatherstrip between the tailgate and the sill may impact the exposure of the LEDs to the rear. The tailgate weatherstrip on my SSR only hung a bit lower on the right side, the left side needed no adjustment. What I saw on mine was that if I placed the LEDs towards the very rear of the sill (aligned to the rear edge), that the weatherstrip would clear the LEDs, but the LEDs would be much more visible and apparent when not in use. I adhered the LEDs up against the plastic sill plate towards the front of the sill, and my weatherstrip only partially blocked the rightmost couple of inches of LEDs. With the LEDs installed, and the tailgate closed, I used a razor knife to very carefully cut off the excess weatherstrip that was blocking the LEDs. I didn't cut too high as I still want the weatherstrip to touch, cover and wipe the upperside of the LED strip with the tailgate closed. Images below.
