Re: Body Side Moulding Question
The 11-13 strips are held on ONLY by tape. No clips or bolts or screws or anything.
As far as the dent, always try pointless dent repair first. Those guys can do amazing things!! I know you said it's by a crease, but if they are able to do it you won't ever tell there was a ding there. I hate having parts repainted and infact I would rather live with a ding than have some shop repaint multiple panels that probably won't even match perfectly.
You could add the strips, but honestly, most other doors would not line up with them so it's hit or miss if they will even prevent a ding. They will date your 2014 Grand Cherokee a bit as I personally feel the lack of strips on the 2014+ models look a lot better, but that's all subjective.
