    They're handy to have fitted. If you scrape them off road they will protect the metal sill edge from being scratched. I&#8217;ve lost some of mine too.

    they do save your sills and bear in mind that they are unique fitment, front left/right rear left/right and not interchangeable!

    I have not refitted mine - just a pain if you get a puncture then have to try and remove them when stuck solid with mud

    I agree - they serve no purpose for me - I removed them as soon as I got the vehicle.

    I couldn't see them anyway because of the side runners.
