Off. The truck isn't nearly big enough to need them and they look dumb.
If you were trying to hide the frame with a body lift, I would say they are acceptable. Personally, steps like that get in my way. I bet once you take them both off you'll find it is much easy to get in and out without hitting your shins and having to lean way over.

Off, but if you still want to have step bars, get some different ones. I just think the stock ones look unattractive.
