Removing Side Molding From Excursion

Can I remove these? I would assume Ford would not drill holes only in the XLT doors for these moldings (and not the Limited since they do not have the moldings).

I have the limited, and they are all on with two sided tape. Give us pics before, during and after. I've been contemplating doing the same thing, but just cause the trim could be mounted better.

This is tempting.

The clean look is always cool. 3M makes this little gem that will really save you some time. I've used it after removing emblems, and I can tell you that it is safe and fast. You go first w/ the moulding and I'll follow behind.

here it is.....

I took a picture of the Ford part number for the rear black molded plastic pieces that snap into the holes. The whole project took about 3 hours including bathing the truck. You can use stout fishing line to get the corner of the panel broke loose enough to grab with your fingers.

Did you just do the rear quarters, or the whole truck? Can I see a full view pic? I wanna see how much is involved in taking all of the body moldings off, and leaving it like that. And what if any moldings would be required for teh rest of them.

I view those moldings the same way as those avalanche trucks, just something to catch dirt and cause excessive wear to start rusting early.

Edit: I guess not all of the pictures loaded the first time. Guess thats what I get for being in east gish with a slow connection. Looks good. Gonna have to see if the wife will let me do that to ours. I'm undecided.

How much for that rear molding? I'm hoping I'd be as lucky as you and not find any unsightly wear marks underneath. What did you use to get the adhesive off of the body?

MyDirectParts.com

you can see the rear moldings in the link above. They were $41 shipped for the two.

I love the new look. Nothing worse than a two-tone truck.

You should only find dirt beneath unless the truck has been bumped by something - dirt comes off easily with soapy water.

I have white and gold two-tone and I hate it. But for $20 and 20k,on a 7.3, I couldn't pass it up.... My moding goes aound the wheel wells and all. I don't care if they are there, but I would like them to be white also and change the running boards and bumbers to black. I love a white vehicle with black trim.
