73-91 K5 Blazer Jimmy front & rear sill scuff trim plates NEW "Price Drop"

*BACK IN STOCK. Shipping March 12th, 2020! GO TO LAST PAGE!
After a lot of false starts over last few yrs, , pretty stoked I finally got these ready to go. It's a fairly complex piece to make but I'm happy with way they turned out. I'm real picky when it comes to my truck and wanted a product that I would I buy.

These fit all full size Blazers & Jimmy from 1973 to 1991. I checked those against a bunch of trucks and against several plates.
The 73-91 rear scuff plate is often trashed and just plain missing and NOS is long gone and not cheap if you do find one.

Made in right here in California from US material.
Not made overseas whatsoever!

I made them thicker than the originals so they are a little more dent resistant and also made rear lip that sits on the carpet longer so carpet stays put.
They come covered in protective vinyl with a mill finish that matches original but can be polished to a mirror if thats look you want.
I will also be including proper GM small head oval #8 screws with the plate.
Plate works best on fresh carpet or rubber mat with underlay. They work fine on old carpet but sometimes they can get caught under the tail gate if carpet is really mashed down. Flattened carpet can put plate at wrong angle.

They are NOW $110 shipped anywhere in lower 48.
Look over the pix and PM or reply here with questions.
Installed in another members K5 who was part of the in field testing team.



Before pix in my official test mule!

Do you know if it will also fit a Suburban?

Sorry they don't. With barn doors and tailgate Sub's floor rear are different.
With enough interest, I'd make 'em.

I looked forever for a nice original one and they just don't exist. That area got hammered over the years with cargo in and out.
Yours is actually better than the original!

Package received 4 days later. Awesome. Part looks great. I am months away from putting it on, so no pictures for you. It's awesome to find rare missing parts. Even better when the repo parts are better than the originals. Thanks!!

I need one Irish. They look great and will be a big step up from the piece of side trim I've currently got acting as a sill plate. I'll shoot you a PM.

Re: 73-91 K5 Blazer Jimmy rear sill scuff plates NEW

Irish, All I can say is WOW!!! Fastest shipment I have received in quite some time, 3 days CA to OH. The Quality is par excellent. This is what I have wanted!!

Now if you can do a Front sill plate to match it will be even better.

Thank you for caring and for your skill in providing this rare part. You will do great.

I am still working on my truck so probably will have this installed for awhile but trial fit without carpet shows this will work fantastic.

Re: 73-91 K5 Blazer Jimmy rear sill scuff plates NEW

Thanks! Means a lot! Worked hard on getting solid product.
My VP of quality control was quite concerned about the screw count.
She's only 5 but she values her job. 9 screws per bag!
Very concerned that everybody liked the screws and count was correct. haha
Working on the front 73-77 plate. Stay tuned.

Still have some sill plates left from this run.
Get one before they are gone!
New metal tariffs are driving domestic prices way up. Not sure
if I'll do another run.

I may do 2nd run in next few weeks.
I do have a few with minor scratches. Most could be sanded and polished out.
If you need something not 100% show truck, send me a PM.
$80 shipped in lower 48.
