Depending on the definition of "moldings". I'm meaning lower fascias when I type "moldings".
Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
models are identified by its body-color grille and chrome headlight
treatment. Body-color side mirrors and door handles are also Laredo exclusives. All lower rocker trim is

chrome grille slot frames and headlight treatment. Bi-xenon headlamps with Grand Cherokee’s
