You did a great job on the painting but unfortunately even with a lift all the door flinging motorists will soon expose the white paint.
I know because I painted mine (and bumpers) with SEM Jeep Cherokee Gray and almost every week I come out to a new ding in the molding. I can't imagine how ****ed up my Jeep would look if I had removed the molding.
I hope it goes better for you.

Thats why you get/make some sliders that extend out a bit so when people swing their doors, they hit the sliders and not your door

Does anyone have a Cherokee that has the rear side plastic bumper corners I removed my rear bumper an put on a steal one. I noticed after removing the plastic that there are metal brackets that the plastic slides onto any ideas on easy removal of the metal brackets? I was thinking about drilling the rivets out and hoping the brackets fall off and welding the holes.

You're on the right path, that's the easiest way to get 'em off. You might want to think about cutting and folding the corners like this --- http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/c...t-way-1007865/

but I bet if you do it right drilling out those rivets and welding up the holes will look good.
