Question F150 Illuminated Door Sills

Has anyone bought and installed these? How are they durability wise I think the Superduty ones have been around for awhile. the price to me anyways seems a tad expensive I'd hope the price drops over time. They do look pretty good but not sure I can justify that cost to see them only while my door is open. The cost is pretty much doubled if you want the rears as well.

Any input on these?

Get the ones that sultangris sells on here. Had them about a year and no problems. If I remember correctly they were just a little over $100 shipped for all 4.

Most defiantly.

Where is the install location for @SultanGris? Do they replace the plastic one that is snapped in place?

Nope, same place as the ones you posted, they stick to the paint with double sided tape!

I believe they install where they do just to make them more durable. No one will really ever step on them on the sill. If they put them where the plastic snaps into place, maybe there would be issues with the leds breaking over time.

I have the ones from SultanGris and they look good. It may be hard to justify the expense a little, but oh well right. It is a nice little added touch.

Sultangris - is there a way to replace the the black rubber piece on the edge? Mine has broke band is dangling. I don't step on it, but I guess my boot edge has caught it a bunch.

It's the RECON ones that are expensive. $500.00 for front and back I think Sultangris is like $100+ for all.

I agree with u as far as looks go, but that area of the truck seems to get stepped on more than the place where sultan installs his.. I don't think they would hold up well!

Exactly, and being made by little Mae Ling doesn't help either!

Talk with macfx4 he has them on his and when I seen his truck they look really nice. He would be a good source on durability as well.

I've had SultanGris's plates on for a few months now and they are great! get complements all the time.

Here's his website:
http://www.siskoenterprisesinc.com/

He's currently working on replacing the "FORD" internal sill plate with a LED option that matches the "F150" offering.

and the original thread discussion:
http://www.f150forum.com/f38/led-doo...w-pics-156768/

and a few pics of mine installed

This company made me these custom 'scuff plates' for my Mustang. I wonder if they could do something for the F150s. The center text lit up red, blue, green, white, etc based off of how you wired them.

When I had about $15,000 in the car, the $230 for them wasn't so bad.

So where did all the threads on these go? I also see his site is gone. Clearly I missed something surrounding this.

Ford put down the rubber stamp of disapproval in using their logo and he was forced to stop producing and distributing via a lawsuit
