2001 Cherokee side moldings

The passenger side moldings disappeared from my Jeep a while back so recently I found some at the junk yard and brought them home. I personally like the way the jeep looks with them or I would have just removed them from the other side.

Anybody have any suggestions as to the best method of adhering the replacements to my jeep? I want to make sure they will stay there but I also want to be sure that it looks as close to factory as possible.

I have some very strong twin stick but I think it may be too thick and leave too big of a space from the body. Any ideas, maybe from somebody who has done this?

I did this on my ZJ the door trim piece kept falling off and I didn't want to buy the clips that hold them on there 9 bucks a piece at the dealer and the bone yard didn't have any. I got some double sided sticky tape by 3M and its works great. been on there a 1yr 1/2.

Gorilla Glue!! Works like a charm every time, just put it on right before you wont be driving it for a few hours (like over night) and just lean something kindof heavy against it and voila, good as new!!! and it will be a lot closer to the body then putting double sided tape behind the trim.

Thanks for the insight guy's. I like both ideas but I think if I can find some thinner 3M double sided mounting hardware tape I'll go that route. Gorilla glue is great I'm just worried about it possibly running and making a mess while it sets.

3M tape is the way to go, make sure its 3M and the fresher the better. You dont want tape that has been sitting on a shelf for the past 2 years with a coating of dust.
