I had the dealer Ford Quick Lane install them before I picked up the car. They stated that they were very expensive and charged me cost for them plus installation. I think it was about $350-400. It took them about a half-hour to install (but they do it on all Fords all the time). I believe Ford has a pre-wire harness for them to connect to (also comes with instructions).How much were the illuminated sills? Were they difficult to install? Just curious where you get the power from.
BTW can you post pictures of yours? The ones in the ads really don't do them justice.
I got them cause it is a guy thing!!!!!!!! I agree that you don't see them much but they add a touch of class when the doors are opened.I got to be honest: The illuminated sills do look really nice; but, when would you see them? Obviously, when the doors are open. When are they illuminated when the vehicle lights are on or when the doors open? Also, based on what Coop is saying (regarding the installation), the installation is pretty easy; most of the work is hiding the two wires. The dealers are charging way too much money to put these in. In my opinion, the sill plates are to protect the door jambs from scuffs; that's why I purchased the non-illuminated set.
I have never tried these Posi-Lock no-crimp tap connectors, so maybe someone else can comment on them... Not sure if you have enough room to put them where you'll be attaching to the harness. But I like the idea that the original wire isn't cut.I have bought a pair of the illuminated stills. I have routed the wires, and attached the sills. Now the hard part. I have reviewed the instructions, and it shows cutting two wires, and installing a crimp splice.
Has anyone made the cut? I am afraid of the crimp splices, never had great long term luck, and I do not want to ruin the factory wire harness. Appreciate your comments.
