    ...and some newer cars have the rear doors at a "v" shaped angle so no matter how much it sticks out or lifted , those fuckin things will hit .
    Just park end stall , next to wall or just away.
    The newer Civic rear doors are stupidly designed.

    You sure you want that? Take a look at the back door on the Tahoe. Satan himself designed these door dinging demons.

    Bring that Ta-hoe pos on. I am going to test this theory on a couple of cars. Will post up pics in the next couple days. To be continued...

    That CR-V can get it. By it I mean a newly shaped door edge. Now that black door looks scary. All depends on the height.

    I just don't go places that have tight parking if it is packed with people. You should see LA, people lean on your truck in the parking lot with no care. They will legit sit on your bumper waiting to be called at a busy restaurant. If you say something they'll just be like "iTs jUsT a karr." That's why I stay my ass out of LA.
    I have friends that will park next to another car in an empty ass lot, they say it's easier to park correctly since you can measure using that other car instead of the lines. I just facepalm and tell them how much of an asshole they are, but they don't understand, because to them, it's just a car..
    If you are already parking far from others, that's probably the best you can do sadly. Sliders will only help with front doors.

    still not bad though, i just want something that’ll stop me from as many vehicles it can, i know it’ll be difficult with all the sharp curved doors these days and larger suspension on trucks/suvs which is a shame and it’s a shame it even happened to start with, ive owned the truck 6 days and am 18 years old put in a lot of work being able to buy this truck and make it the way i want it and then something so careless by somebody else had to bring down the excitement for me

    Its hard to own anything nice, in a world where most people don’t care about their shit. As others said it’s best to just try and park away from people. Even then you’ll still have jackasses park next to you in an empty lot. Even if you somehow avoid damage from people in parking lots there are still lots of things that can happen on the road or parked in a street or something. After years of caring about my vehicles, as I’ve got older I’ve tended to start caring less. Atleast after it gets its first ding or scratch and hits a year old. It’s just a average truck and I’m not attached to it like I was my first car, or would be some collectors car something.

    My sliders don't help against door dings.

    i guess id have to find wide enough ones if i wanted it to stand a chance against other vehicle doors and even then that won’t protect from every door

    The point being is sliders may offer some protection, but not 100% there are tons of vehicles that can still cause door dings with them still.
