ugly side molding ideas??

So I have the dumb factory side moldings on my truck. There all faded and starting to peel off the side of the truck. I yanked off the passenger side door one and was gonna rip the rest off till I noticed the paint was all bubbled under it. I got 3M molding tape and re taped it and it still don't look right. I have the tan lower on my truck which I am starting to get tired of looking at so I was gonna get the bottom sprayed with line x. Will the line x fill in the paint bubbles if I clean them out? So I'm asking do you guys think it would look better with new side moldings and line x bottom or should I just take off the moldings and go higher up with the line x? I looked at some trucks with it done but still can't decide. What do you guys think??

Subbed.
I asked this question a while ago about my trim looking bad and didn't get to much on it. Most people said take them off but they have saved my doors a lot of dings by looking at them so that's a no go. Wish there was a way to refinish them?

That cleaned up the dings? Mine are black and seem to be going dull in areas I don't know what will fix that other than replacing them.
