Did a little painting on the steps

So my step bars were pretty scratched up and a few bits of rust on them. Been wanting to do this for quite some time and just now got around to doing it. I used Silver gloss engine paint i had from when i did my rear diff cover. ill be putting bed liner over the actual part you step on. i think it helped the look a little bit. anyway let me know what you think.

start from the corner put a screw driver under and get it started then with another leaving that one in pop the next. then take the first and go pop the next while leaving the last one in to keep tension can have it off in like 1-2 min

Looks good, but i never understood the reason for a stock 2WD truck with 235's to have step bars. unless your only 5'0" tall.

Looks good!
I took mine off because they were getting nasty and one was missing a plug at the end. Might clean them up and keep them in case I decide I like them again.. haha
