door ding guards

is anyone having problems with paint fading/chipping away from their factory door ding guards that are factory painted? they look like their just glued to the door panel so i might just remove them if thats the case.

Yes sir. They are taped on. I new a guy in South Carolina who bumbed his during the summer and the thing slid down the door.

Get you some nice nerf bars and shim them out 5/8". It takes the nerf bars just past the body molding. Cars will hit your bars instead of your door. Doesn't do much to protect against other trucks. I've had mine on since I bought the truck in March 05 and I do not have any door dings.

All those things are held on the same way, I bet: some sort of soft adhesive that becomes brittle after a while. Once that happens, it's just a matter of time before they come off. That said, I plan to get some for my truck. I try to be very careful not to whack another vehicle, but the peace-of-mind is worth the aggravation.

painted plastic needs a lot of maintenance, especially on a part that gets tire splashed to death.

Did ya'll remove the moldings yet? How did it look? I'm having the same problem, but I'm afraid of removing them do to the fact that they have been on there for 3 yrs.
