To Trim Or Not To Trim?

One of my door bump gaurds is starting to peel off. I like the way it looks with it on there but i am looking for b4 and after pics of the side trim on and removed. I liked the pinstripe i had also untill i removed it and liked it WAY better. This may be the same thing. I know they dont make it anymore and it is in nice shape so i may get some adhesive and try to stick it back on where its lifting or just remove it all together.

Just help me to decide what to do with a few helpful pics. THANKS

I would try and re-stick it, it looks good on your truck with those wheels and the fender trim.

Junk that junk. Just add some chrome tube steps to accent the center of the truck with something.

Here is mine with the trim.



Without the trim and no steps.



Without the trim and with chrome tube steps.



I would recommend taking it to a body shop and letting them remove it as it might peel the paint.
