Chrome Side Molding on a 2014

The 2014 GC is the first year that Jeep deleted the Chrome side molding in place of the Grand Cherokee label. As much as I like the look I worry about door dings. I see it is available on several web sites. I was wondering if anyone had installed it on a 2014.

I thought about adding it, but instead decided to use 3/4" rubber side molding. My color is dark, so the molding is virtually invisible, but still protects against door dings.

Re: Chrome Side Molding on a 2014

I'm watching a set on eBay, but waiting to see what happens when I instal the side steps.
If the side steps will offer a decent protection point I will leave it.

What rubber molding did you use? I haven't seen anything available for this yet?

Re: Chrome Side Molding on a 2014

Do it and post pics. I am thinking about it as well, but too afraid I'll stick it on crooked. And there is the minor issue of removing the Grand Cherokee letters that are there now.

Not OEM, I got it at Pep Boys, believe it or not. It is black vinyl, with 3M double sided tape. 3/4" wide, and looks identical to what BMW uses on the X5.

I first applied blue painter's tape to the body, as a guide, and to make sure the line was straight. Then used the tape line as a guide to apply the moulding.

Re: Chrome Side Molding on a 2014

Well finally went and bought the Jeep moldings. Some 14 Jeeps look good without them while others look cheap. Mine is white and after having two other white JGC my 14 just looked cheap without them. Just a personal preference. Plus the extra protection for the doors is worth it.

The link to an image in your Gmail doesn't work.
