These are by GM, I don't have pics though, the dealer might have something to look at:

Do these sills go over top of the stock ones or do you take out the old first?
they lay on top of the old ones & don't cover the entire sill, just the center area. They look nice, but they attach with double sided tape. For $120, I was was expecting something a bit more sturdy.

Don't get me wrong, I like them and the improved look, I was hoping they were a full screw down replacement for the plastic ones. They are one of the only things I've added that my wife noticed right away.

I've ordered the chrome ones, I thought they would stand out a bit more against the black body :)

I also have researched door sill logo's but I also want one for my tailgate sill. Seems like GM wants a lot of money for sills. Anybody fine the answer for t-gate sill?

Door Sills

I have also been told by GMPARTSDIRECT that they have a trunk sill that goes with it. As soon as mine come in I will post it. It should have come with the door sills I ordered!

Can't wait to see it!

Accessories too!

As most of you might already know I am "keep it Stock", kind of guy. However if you are a "Stock" ONLY person...

I believe anything that GM comes out with as an accessory that is designed to fit ALL MY (Model Year) SSRs then I feel it is 100% ok to get! i.e.
  • Retro Hood Struts
  • Custom Sil Plates
  • Wind Screen
  • Under the Hood Blanket
  • Soft SSR Storage Bags
  • Bed liner
  • Larger SSR floor mats
  • Any other future accessories that will be offered by GM!

I ordered the bright chrome sills from GM Parts Direct (they are still on order).

This morning, I go over to www.gmaccessorieszone.com and bring up the PDF brochure for the '05 model year. It's date stamped 09/30/05. Look at page 1, Interior "Door Sill Plate Kit - Satin Chrome, Includes 2 Doors and Tail Gate part # 17800259" It's the same MSRP as the Chrome sill kit.

I sent an email to GM Parts Direct to see if the satin kit includes that tail gate sill, so we'll see.
