Should I remove all the plastic door panels on the ZJ?

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.

Can't wait to see that thing at the Badlands.

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.
