After seeing all the door dings in the plastic moldings in mine, I'd definitely recommend them. Nicked plastic beats dented sheetmetal any day of the week. I suppose Shrock sliders would help that problem too, though?

I have been pondering the same question, I am back and forth, it has a cleaner look without them, but it could save on door dings. I have the step rails on mine so that should save some damage. I'm too back and forth to commit to anything. If I off-roaded more I would probably get them. Which trim levels came with it stock? I have an 05 S with the utility package, do the side molding only come on the OR and SE models?

ok, so i picked these up from the dealer yesterday; had a 15% off coupon so i figured why not. however, it looks like these things come in a dark grey color and not black.... in all the pics i've seen they looked black.. what gives? do they come in black? i think i'll return these

If you want black, you are going to need to paint them. I am probably going to paint mine once I Line-x the the sides.
