hmmm, gonna remove steps.....

I've decided to get rid of my step bars.....well, tomorrow if the weather permits. In the meantime, cause its friggin raining! instead of snowing. Can anyone post some insight (pics) on how to remove them? Gonna start on it tomorrow after work. Just don't wanna run into any snags. I appreciate any info. Will update with photos when complete. My current pics on my profile have the steps. Cheers

And yes, as much as I know how ugly my mudflaps are. The grimey winter grit and road salt is something I don't want chewing up my paint and exhaust; which is a chrome swept style tail. So for now, there stayin'. Come spring time, I'm losing the little turds:)

Easiest way if you're doing it by yourself is to remove the tubes from the brackets and then the brackets from the truck. It's pretty simple.

bringing back a old thread I started for some more insight from you fellas. I have had my steps back on just for the winter, but now I took them off. Woohoo. This is where I need some help. Its the bracket that is attached to the truck. Im ratcheting the bolts off, but it snags to a halt. I think the bolts have some sort of washer that prevents the bolt from coming off and its driving me nuts. How do I remove these bloody bracket bolts? Thanks guys

I don't remember having any problem taking the brackets off. Do you have PB blaster?
