Do it anyway, it will look better and ultimately it will save your doors, and if you're lucky, it will be clean underneath and the paint will be perfect.
My 05 has a built date of 12/04. I bought it used in 11/05 and took the moldings off a month later. No bubbles or problems.

Eh... think of it this way. If you get bubbles, you'll just be part of an elite club. Even the mighty Charg-um has drivers door bubbles.

I did mine on a hot, sunny Houston afternoon late last August (bought the car in mid July) and had no problems whatsovever. Just a little gummy residue which came right off with a little goof-off.

Should i just take the ones off on the front fenders to see how they are?
If there ok,go ahead and do the rest???
Heat gun is overkill..you might toast your paint. Just use a hair dryer on medium setting.
Here in florida, I did mine on a warm day (in the 80's or so) with my wifes hair dryer (honey, what are you doing with my hair dryer??). They came off so easily I was surprised they stayed on in the first place.
And even better, NO BUBBLING! I didnt even have to use any goo-b-gone. If you go very slowly and heat the area in front of where you're pulling the trim off, all the glue comes along with it.
In colder climates, your mileage may vary.

How long did it take to do it all??
Take it off, Take it off!!! I did mine a couple months ago and there was a little bit of discoloration but nothing some wax and elbow grease didn't fix...
Just use a hair dryer and they come off really easy...

if u take them off gently they can be put back on with new molding tape, i actually have a set of srt/rt moldings , i got from a member here, that took them off there msrt, and look as good as new.. i want to put them on my SE, i like how the chrome trim on them breaks up some of the black...i just need a warm enough day to pull the old SE moldings off and put the srt/rt moldings on, or pay a body shop to do it, so that it is straight, or atleast hope they will be..
Thank You Haz
I sealed the gap in mine. Im leaving them on to keep aholes from knocking dents in the sides. If you take them off and you have the bubbles, they DONT go away. Its the paint coming off the surface. ONLY fix is repainting the affected doors. You can put all the mojo and secret formulas on it you want but its still that the paint is no longer attached to the body.
