Need your opinions

I'm putting my already Line-X'ed 08 bed on next weekend Anyways, the new bed doesn't have the body moulding on it like my old one does. I don't know whether I should leave my old moulding the way it is, put new moulding on the new bed or take all the moulding off my truck. I need your input. Here's a pic of my truck now..... (I circled in red what I'm talking about)

A friend of mine took his off and there are no holes behind it. I kind of like the way the moulding breaks up the white/clear/chrome but I can't picture what it would look like without it

Do you have a big, side pic of your truck that you can post? ( I know you do, I saw one in another thread yesterday but I'm too lazy to search )

I'm entertaining that idea also. I'm usually pretty careful about not banging my doors into stuff but there's been a few times that they've saved my a$$. And also, there have been a few times that they've saved other people's a$$ that have thrown their door open into the side of my truck
