I don't care for body trim, never have. I popped off one of the door panels to see what's under there. There is just these post things that I could leave where they are temporarily I guess. Anyway, your thoughts would be appreciated.

Here is what one looks like without anything in between the wheel wells. I think that looks pretty sexy.

Take it off....TAKE IT ALL OFF! Body cladding is way too yuppie and has no place on a Jeep. It's as uncool as a thong on a fat guy. :smt011

yup, I ripped it all off tonight except the peice that covers the rocker panels. I'll see what you guys think of that still installed before I move on. There is a rust spot on the lower lip of the drivers door, and I think that plastic will take someone's attention away from it. Ill post up pictures tomorrow.

looks good.
it looks alot cleaner than i thought it would. i opted to rubber undercoat mine. i did a blot method texture on it. and at least you still have the panels it u want to put it back on. i broke the clip on my front fender plastic so now it is screwed under the coating.
