Default Door Trim Separating From Body?

I washed my ranger today and noticed that the long trim piece that runs along the side of the cab is beginning to separate from the body, just right at the front of it.
It's not noticeable until you get right up close, but is there anything I can do myself to properly fix it and prevent it from getting worse?

Nope, there's probably a word for it but I don't know what it is lol. Its the body-colored, raised strip about half way down the door. It's just there for decoration I'm pretty sure.

A 2009 is already losing it's side protection moldings? That's just dandy.

As was said, 3M double sided tape will put it back on. But the crap at the grocery store may not work well, you may need to source out the professional stuff.

Lol it's extremely minor, I just noticed it as I was drying my truck. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and don't want it to get any worse!

Don't blame you at all. Even if you weren't a perfectionist, that still shouldn't be happening this early.
