When you install them make sure the ones on the front door are no more then 1/8 inch from the edge. Otherwise when the door is opened all the way it will pinch the front of the molding. I temporarily taped mine up first (blue painters tape) and marked where it had to go to make sure both doors opened all the way.

(Took a few photos) I tested it with a car and mini van and both of the doors hit the molding first. However the molding did not protect it from the rear car door. The door hit the body above the molding first. Might not protect your doors from every vehicle but it does make me rest a little easier knowing I have some protection. If anyone is interested this is the site I purchased them from. I ordered them pre-painted to match my Jeep. https://sportwing.com/HM-CHEROKEE-14...y-Side-Molding






Looks like this is the best one available so far
I'm gonna order one for my Granite JGC, do you know the shipping weight? (need it to calculate international shipping cost)
Thanks

Just looked at my sales receipt and unfortunately the weight wasn't listed. Probably because it's free shipping within the USA. I did go to the website and copied this off it for you (If you have any questions about the status of your order, or if you would like shipping information, please give us a call at (800) 899-1516. Our Customer Service Representatives will be happy to assist you) They also have a contact page. https://sportwing.com/contact.aspx

Thank you for the great installation tip!

They didn’t answer my enquiry about shipping to Australia.

HMMMM, when I first saw this post and went to the website, they only had the black and white options. Nice to see the other colors listed now.

Question though. Do you have to order "2" to do both sides? Or 1 the entire set?

They answered mine, here's their reply: "Hello, This molding kit weighs about lbs. w/packaging. I hope this helps!"
But I'll have it shipped to my address in the US then to my place in UAE via Aramex Shop & Ship service

Just 1 set comes with both sides. 4 pieces, the applicator/ instructions. You'll need to buy blue painters tape to mark out your straight line. Took me maybe about 20 minutes to install them all.

You removed the weight figure, what is it?
