Side Molding and Door Dings Yes or No

Ok, my wife is really getting tired of me parking out in the boon docks everytime we go some place. But I really do not want to come out of Wally World and have a confrontation with some one who has just opened their door on my new 2010 Taco. How many have added side or body molding between the wheel wells? How many think this will ruin the clean looks of the truck? I know some here have said the nerf bars or running boards will prevent this and perhaps it would on cars, but I can't see it helping much on other trucks. What is your opinion? To add and protect or leave off/keep clean and keep parking in the boons??

Walking is good for you. I hate finding parking lots that are full or too small to have a no man's land. I will come unglued the first time I find a door ding

True story!

I parked in the back 40, any further away from the store and I'd be on the road. I parked next to a Nissian Frontier that was leaving just as I was pulling in. NO ONE near me.

I come out to find that some woman managed to find my vehicle out in the middle of no where and back into it.

She stuck around and paid for the damages though, so I can't complain too much. So far my front bumper as paid me $2400 by just being there.

Sh!t will happen man. I was really annoyed with a tiny scratch on my tailgate until someone destroyed the tailgate while my truck was parked. Luckily insurace covered it and I only had $200 deductible... my rates didnt even go up because I made a police report and considered not at fault. Actually my rate went down a bit, could be just because I'm getting older probably.

Just something to keep in mind... when you stress small stuff big stuff will get you.

I used to think parking way in the back was a good idea too. But, after reading a theft article somewhere. You are more likely to get your stuff stolen. Or, your vehicle vandalized by parking far out. Which kind of makes sense; bc the closer you park to the front door, the more foot patrol there is. Thus, chances of someone seeing malicious activity are increased.

Feel free to discuss.

Only fool proof prevention is a daily driver. Leave the truck at home for menial shit involving parking lots.

Chrome body side mouldings? On a truck? Give your wife a pellet gun so she can stand guard while you shop at home depot.

If she's paying for the Coma, then do as she says... If you're paying for it, then park as far as you can just to piss her off. That's what I would do!

Obviously the stick on type side molding is out of the question? I have seen some Tacos with the black trim and matching side molding that did not look too bad. Some were wide and placed in the groove on the side of the truck. Making me think it was originally put there for this purpose. Others have used a more narrow type and put it on the high point just below the groove. Not sure about painted trim however.

Side steps are probably best for door dings. I'm not a fan of gluing stuff to the side of the vehicle, and sliders don't look like they provide as complete protetction against door dings as good steps.

I try to park away from cars. Unfortunately my college parking lot was always full. Two dents in the tailgate, one in the passenger-side rear near the tail light. >.< Apparently people can't judge distances when backing up.
